A must for anyone trying to get into ketosis.
4 October 2017
I follow a strict low carb induction diet, these are a must and this brand works really well. It takes a while to get into ketosis, and the smallest thing can knock you out of it. These strips help keep you accountable. That one tablespoon of peanut butter, one glass of wine, small bag of nuts.... they all knock you out of ketosis. These strips couldn't be easier to use - put it in your urine stream (or dip it if you have issues), then wait 15 seconds and compare it to the color chart. I was doing really well, then had a couple cocktails last night at a play and today's results were not only disappointing, they forced me to keep a strict count on my carbs today, good motivation. This is a great price plus you get bonus strips. Make sure you keep this jar sealed up and out of the sun in a dry place, they do go bad over time. Take one out and seal the lid back up before you even use the bathroom. I say this from experience. If you leave the lid off once you risk ruining the entire bottle. I do feel like they are less effective the older they are (once opened).
