Ketone urine-testing strips, also called Ketostix or just ketone sticks … are small plastic strips that have a little absorptive pad on the end. This contains a special chemical that will change color in the presence of ketones in the urine. The strips may change varying shades of pink to purple, or may not change color at all. The container will have a scale on the label, with blocks of color for you to compare the strip after a certain time lapse, usually 15 seconds. Most folks simply hold a strip in the flow of urine. However, the force of the flow can “wash” some of the chemical away, experts advise that a sample of urine be obtained in a cup or other container, then the strip dipped into it. The chemical reagent is very sensitive to moisture, including what’s in the air. It’s important Continue reading >>

    How many days into induction did it take for the strip to turn purple? I thought it was only supposed to take a few days and here I am on day 5 and it is only a very light pink. I hope I am still in ketosis.

Ketosis & Ketone Test Strips

If the scales are no longer telling the whole story, Ketone Test Strips will indicate if your fat is being burnt or you are unintentionally eating SUGAR! What are ketones? Ketones are a normal and efficient source of fuel and energy for the human body. They are produced by the liver from fatty acids, which result from the breakdown of body fat in response to the absence of glucose/sugar. When engaged in the Ideal Protein Diet, a ketogenic diet, the tiny amounts of glucose required for some select functions can be met by consuming a minimum amount of carbs – or can be manufactured in the liver from PROTEIN. When your body is producing ketones, and using them for fuel, this is called “ketosis.” Ketones are incompletely burned carbon fragments. The very fact that they are less efficient as fuel is what makes them give you that ‘metabolic advantage.’ Some of the calories burned are not used to their full capacity… hence the person can eat more calories when in ketosis than when not, and still lose the same amount of weight. Ketoacids are short (four carbons long.) It’s important because in that way they are able to penetrate cells to feed them when there is no glucose pre Continue reading >>

    If i am in the purple with ketostix does that mean I am in ketosis and or burning fat?

    You might want to check your older threads. I think we've answered this a few times on threads you've started. It may help, anyway, in your search for answers regarding this topic. I even remember a thread (I think it was you?) that had pictures of the stix and the color they were, and members were advising you as to their colors. Hope this helps.

Subscribe for videos on becoming superhuman: https://goo.gl/TSDCuv To know whether or not youve entered ketosis you can measure your blood ketone levels. But how to know if you are in ketosis without strips? Nutritional ketosis begins if our blood ketone levels are over 0.5mMol. To indicate that, you can use either urine strips like Ketostix. There are also breath takers. The most optimal range for ketosis is between 0.5 and 3 mMol. But there are a few problems with measuring ketones. 1. Having elevated levels of ketones doesnt mean youre in ketosis. 2. These urine strips are expensive and taking several measurements a day is very costly.

How To Tell If You’re In Ketosis With Strips

During the process of becoming keto-adapted, your body is re-learning how to manufacture and use ketones as a source of energy instead of sugars or carbs. One of the simplest methods of testing whether your body is producing ketones is to use ketosis strips. Ketostix are the most popular available. The process is pretty simple, you take a strip and either hold it in your urine stream or alternatively, wee into a cup and dip the stick in there. Then you compare the colour of the strip to the chart on the bottle. It’s important to compare the colour at the right time – typically 15 seconds after you have dipped it in your urine. The most widely regarded standard figures for being in ketosis are if you measure between 0.5 – 3.0mmol of ketones. Here’s the thing, though… It’s important to remember that these strips simply tell you whether or not you are excreting ketones. And just because you are excreting ketones does not tell you that your body is using them (i.e. keto-adapted). And, also if you are showing no ketones, that does not mean your body is not producing them. A highly keto-adapted person will excrete less ketones because their body is using them all. I know this Continue reading >>
