Yesterday, I felt very different than usual. I had so much energy throughout the day, and I could not sleep last night.Today I feel the same way, and think I am in ketosis. If that were true, how long would it be safe for me to remain this way before eating a potato or two lol? What are the symptoms of being in ketosis? I didn't feel hungry after eating yesterday or today and know that I am not getting enough calories. At 11am today I ate 3 slices of bacon, and 3 eggs cooked in the fat, plus 1 tablespoon(approx.) of a cheddarcheese and butter blend I made. I don't know how to describe the feeling but kind of this "giddy high" lol. Can someone share some good links or books/information on ketosis? By the way I am 18 and female.
You don't really need to check, after a few days on a low carb diet you WILL be in ketosis (unless you eat more than 50 g carbs per day or so). Breath, urine and sweat might smell like aceton due to unused ketons, this should disappear when the body learns to handle them better though...
http://josepharcita.blogspot.se/2011/03/guide-to-ketosis.html is a guide that I've enjoyed reading, very detailed and informative.
Start with Jimmy Moore's website. He has TONS of info on ketosis. Personally, I wouldn't worry about ketosis, but think more about being a good fat burner, not how many ketones you have floating around.
