What Is Ketosis?

Ketosis is a metabolic state of the body that comes from consuming a low-carb, moderate protein, & higher-fat diet that forces your body to use KETONES as its energy source. By controlling your intake of these macronutrients, you are essentially draining the body of its common energy source (glucose) and in turn it reacts by creating its own energy source from the fat you have stored. In other words, in the absence of carbs & sugar your body will burn FAT for fuel! Specifically abnormally stored fat which lies within the tummy, hips, thighs, triceps, and face! The problem with sugar & carbohydrates is that is spikes blood glucose, which in turn causes an insulin spike. This insulin spike then causes a "crash" - which leads to hunger, cravings, & the need for more fuel. Some people may reach for more caffeine to get them through the day etc. You typically get glucose from your diet by eating carbohydrates like: Sugar Bread Grains Fruit Starchy Vegetables The excess carbs & sugar people consume on a daily basis, over time, gets stored as fat IF you're not burning it off via strenuous exercise. This has no lead us into an obesity epidemic. Currently 71% of the U.S. is overweight or ob Continue reading >>

    Right around the time I was about to move into P3, my body went into Ketosis (after researching why my urine was so yellow all the time). One of the side affects can be nausea - and I have it bad! I can barely eat anything! So I want out of Ketosis, but I think I have to up my carb intake?
    Is anyone familiar with Ketosis and have suggestions on how to get out of it? It's so hard for me to eat anything, that the higher in carbs the better, but still within the P3 guidelines.

    Ketosis itself should not make you nauseated. If it does, maybe you are simply adjusting, your digestion needs help or you are eating too much protein. Adjusting usually is more a flu like feeling, feverish. it is called carb-flu.
    In general, to stay out of ketosis, you need to consume more than 60g of carbs a day. That said, I recommend you read Primal Body Primal Mind and learn more about why it is better to function on ketones than on glucose.

    Is anyone familiar with Ketosis and have suggestions on how to get out of it? It's so hard for me to eat anything, that the higher in carbs the better, but still within the P3 guidelines. I get out of ketosis around 30 carbs per day, but I am very heavy. I try to stay in ketosis during P3 as I have seen 20 carbs per day recommended (not protocol) for people who have over 50 lbs to lose. People with under 50 lbs to lose were recommended 50 carbs max in P3 (again, not from P&I). Any time I went over 30 carbs in P3, I gained. I don't know why your urine is yellow, as mine is clear in Ketosis. Are you drinking enough water, as that often darkens your urine, with brownish urine being more extreme. Maybe try raising your carbs a little at a time and see when you start to feel better? HTH

How To Tell If I’m In Ketosis? Signs And Symptoms

One of the questions we most often get from the Keto Diet Living community is How can I tell if my body is in ketosis? Or How can I check my ketones? If you have just started keto or have been on your keto journey for months, you probably know that when your body changes from relying on carbohydrates for energy to metabolizing fats, it produces molecules called ketone bodies. Following a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet will reduce insulin and increase the breakdown of both consumed fat and fat stores on your body. When this occurs, your liver begins creating vast quantities of ketones to supply energy to the cells throughout your body and brain. Ketosis usually happens when ketone levels are present at 0.3 to 0.5 mmol/L and can happen in as little as just a few days. Becoming fully keto-adapted often takes longer and of course, varies for everyone. If you are unfamiliar with the symptoms or how to test for ketones, it can be difficult to know whether you’re “in ketosis” or not. Rest assured there are some telltale signs and symptoms to tell if your carb cutting efforts have been sufficient enough to result in ketosis. First, let’s take a look at some signs you may see tha Continue reading >>

    I have been doing Keto since June 27 this year....so almost a month. I was finally able to get my hands on a bottle or ketone tear strips. Just did my first test tonight and as soon as the stick hit urine it turned super dark purple (darkest shade posssible...box says large amount of ketones and says 160 for the number). I have a few questions...
    1. Is that good? Or is that “too much” ketones??
    2. Is there a certain time of day I should be testing to get the most accurate results?
    3. Does this large amount of ketones mean I’m in a deep state of Ketosis? Maybe even almost fat adapted? (I hope!)
    Thanks for any help!!

  2. Ijjunne

    Keto sticks turning purple means that you're producing and excreting a lot of ketones. Don't worry, it's not too much ketones. If you're not type 1 diabetic or type 2 with pancreatic failure, you should be fine. You seem to be in ketosis, but it doesn't necessarily mean that you're fat adapted. I always test in the morning in a fasted state.

    But I have to warn that the keto sticks are not reliable after a certain time being in ketosis, because the ketones you'll produce will be used and not excreted.

  3. Heather_Bryant

    No, I’m not diabetic. So I guess this test result is great news! Yay!
    I also heard that once you’re fat adapted you won’t show any ketones on test sticks. Is that correct? That would be one small way to help tell when I am.

How To Achieve Ketosis Fast And Confirm It

How to Achieve Ketosis Fast and Confirm It Upon learning how easy and fast a ketogenic diet plan works, you may be wondering how to get your body into ketosis quickly? First let’s cover what Ketosis is. When you eat less carbs, the body has less carbs to burn and starts to burn fat instead, since you are depleting it from the body’s stores. In this state, it is called ketosis, and your body is creating ketones. The ketones are created in the liver from fat, the body and brain then uses that fat as fuel. Therefore, when you are burning ketones/fat, you are in the state of ketosis. So by now you have probably read enough about eating a ketogenic diet, and know that you will be eating a low carb and a high fat diet. Foods to Avoid to get into Ketosis Quick There are also foods high in carbs that you need to avoid (some listed are redundant): Bread Tortillas Pastas Chips Starch Potatoes Legumes/Beans/Peas Grains/Corn Sugar/Candy Desserts Sodas Food and Nutrition Calculator to the Rescue! A food and nutrition calculator, like the superb one (shown above) with the most features, is a great way to go when wanting to achieve ketosis fast.

    i remember reading in atkins book (92 version) that if the urine is dark then your in ketosis...well, my urine was dark until today..and maybe other days it may be dark but once or twice it isn't...if someone is in ketosis is it always dark? does that mean i'm not in it anymore? i've been wondering if i may have fallen out of it by hitting 30 carbs daily here and there. it's my TOM this week so my weight hasn't changed AT ALL, 2 weeks now. this happened last month where there was no weight change for 2 weeks during the pms time but the following week i caught up to lose my 15 pounds a month goal....if any one has suggestions or ideas on this subject i'll gladly appreciate it...

    I dont know about dark urine. My urine is never dark because I drink large amounts of water and I am certainly in ketosis. Darker urine, from what I understand, is a sign of dehydration. Perhaps you are thinking of a darker reading on a ketone strip?

  3. stacy0912

    no, i never have used the strips. i do remember reading that there are two ways of telling if your in ketosis if you don't use the strips, one was the color of urine and the other was the low carb 'bad breath'..i drink 80 oz of water a day, sometimes only 60-70 so i don't think i'm dehydrated...
