New To Keto?

What is keto?
Keto is short for ketosis, which WebMD defines as “a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn’t have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones”.
 
Keto Strips
Some people depend ketone test strips to determine if they are in ketosis, however keto strips only measure excess levels of acetoacetate, which is not the type of ketones that correlate with nutritional ketosis. More information regarding the inaccuracy of keto strips can be found here.
