Sticky Thread Sticky: New to Keto? - Look Here First *Frequently Asked Questions*

One of the most frequently asked questions is regarding ketostix. Many people ask if they are still in ketosis if the stick is only showing trace amounts of ketones.

Sticky Thread Sticky: A Guide to Ketosis

I first heard about keto from this board 3 or 4 years ago, so this is where it all started for me. I've had fantastic results on keto, and I really believe in the validity of this diet - not only in terms of fat-loss, but also in terms of health-gain. There is a lot of understandable skepticism and...

Exclamation Intolerant to sugars

Well my body is so good at digesting and processing a ketogenic type diet: kale with chicken, kale with salmon, whole eggs etc. I could eat it 10 mins before working out and no problems, and no insulin response. Unless in between playing football or gym etc, sugar is my worst enemy When i...

What to replace burned calories with on keto

So I'm starting keto soon, but I have fairly active job that requires walking around a lot. Thankfully I have a watch that keeps track of my cals burned by walking. But to replace the cals burned, should I just eat more fats/protein or would it be better to eat some low GI veggies? I like to eat...

blood keto test right after keto meal: kicked out

Hi, I know I'm in ketosis: I test my blood with a meter with keto strips. However, if I test my blood after 30 min of eating a KETO meal (not a cheat meal :-)), I get kicked out of ketosis. After few hours I'm back into ketosis. Is this normal? or should I tweak better my meals? Thank you...

Keto diet help

I've been wanting to follow this diet for a couple weeks, but I'm a little scared.

just need some info

I (assume I) have been going into keto through not eating quite a lot lately, and then I eat some sugary food without any protein and continue on an empty stomach. If keto is somewhat protective, is kicking myself out of keto doing anything detrimental? I should have the money for some protein...

Questions about keto?

Our brain needs glucose to function. If we stop our glucose intake, how does our brain function? For a normal person with no diabetes, will they reach a low level of hypoglycemia? And if so, is it bad? Will they pass out, from having no sugar in the body? Will the insulin spike vary if...
