Ketosis

Just curious! When people are doing the atkins Diet and go into ketosis how long does it usally take to do this or does it depend on different things? Tks

It depends on different things (how much fat you're eating, how much stored carbohydrates your body has [in the form of glycogen] and how fast your metabolism is) but it generally happens within 48 to 72 hours.

You can usually tell by a metalic taste in your mouth and the absence of hunger.

Re: Ketosis

You can either buy them in the "diet" section at Walmart or go to any pharmacy and ask for ketone testing strips, then run about $12 for a tube of 50 strips.
