I know the keto stix arent that accurate so I have not tried those yet.
I have followed a strict diet for the last 7 days and have not had any of the side effects others report about ketosis. Other than a headache last week after a good workout at the gym.
My macros have been a constant 65/30/5 everyday and my weight hasnt dropped any either.
I am 5'8" 192 lbs and my calorie intake has averaged 2200-2400 a day and I have worked out 40-50 minutes 3 days a week with 2 days of light cardio and still I can not tell if I am in ketosis.
I did start at about 196 last Monday but I attribute that to loads of carbs the Sunday before (ice cream, candy bars, cakes).
Any insight would be appreciated! TIA!
