What’s Up With My Pee?

Sometimes new ketonians think of the strangest things to ask about on the Ketogenic Success Facebook group. One thing that just seems to keep coming up, again and again, is the question regarding changes to their urine stream. (I always want to remind people that there are over one hundred forty thousand users in the Ketogenic Success group, and maybe this isn’t a question they would ask in front of a crowd that large, but clearly, the question is on a lot of minds!) So let’s look at a couple of changes you may notice in the toilet after emptying your bladder. Change in Color You may find that your urine is changing color.

    This is by no means a scientific approach, but, I'll say it anyway.

    The topic of ketosis has been brought up a lot on this forum. For more of what has been said in the past, try doing a search on the topic. Good stuff, Maynard!
    For me, I know when I'm back in ketosis when my energy goes back up, I stop fixating on anything NOT on the protocol, and I no longer feel like harming my husband for no apparent reason. Depending on what knocked me out, it could be 1 day, it could be 4 (and then I keep track so it doesn't happen again).
