    How do i tell if i am in ketosis without ketostix?

    For almost a month I've been eating food that is zero carbs, except for the 2g or so that happens to be in sausage, cheese etc. In fact, my diet is mostly meat, eggs, cheese, and some broccoli. Actually, now that I think about it, I drink a lot of coffee with creamer in it. The creamer is 3g fat, 1g carb, and 1g protein for 2 tablespoons (standard creamer, not the flavored stuff). I read on here that having the metallic taste in your mouth means your in ketosis because of the ketones you breath out, and I had that for a while, but now its gone. I was wondering if this means I am in ketosis or not?

    If I'm not in ketosis, is the coffee creamer keeping me out of it?

    After a month you are most certainly in ketosis. As for the side effects they are the result of your body not using all the ketones that are produced so the excess is excreted via breath and urine. As you adapt you will become more efficient at using the ketones so there will be less being wasted or excreted. Hence the breath/taste goes away. You may show negative on Ketostix as well because again they read excess ketones. This doesn't mean you are not in keto just that you are more than likely using what is being produced. Grats on your first month keep it up

    Not to hijack, but how long until the funky breath goes away? I've been doing keto for just over a month, and it's still there. From what the ketostix say, I was in keto by the end of April. Nasty breath or not, I'm down 15 pounds!

    piss stinks more than usual.
    if you had bad breath before, you still have it now.
    veggies has carbs. if you been on a ketogenic diet, without no carbs up than your still in ketosis.
    eat, sleep, lift.

    Low carb
    Keto

    This I had a question about. While on this diet, I have noticed a decrease in motivation to work out, as well as energy deficits... At work today I just felt so unmotivated and unenergetic, it was something I had never felt before. I was ****ing shocked. Does this get better?
