A good way to check on your progress with respect to ketogenesis occurring on a low-carb diet protocol. Just pee on a strip and 15 seconds later check the colour against the scale on the back of the tub. For me I started eating very low carb on 01/01/14 and after about 5 days I hit trace amounts of ketones, then 1.5mmol/litre a few days later, with nil inbetween and at all other times. Good fun and doing this gives me the extra incentive to stick to my desired eating schedule, as it is some sort of "proof" of dieting progress. Certainly weight comes off eating in this manner, and eating quite a lot even.
