Any of these signs could indicate that you are in ketosis:
- Decreased appetite and increased energy levels
- Increased thirst and urination
- Keto breath, which may be more apparent to others than to yourself
- Dry mouth or a metallic taste in your mouth
To ensure that you are in ketosis, you can always measure your ketosis level with ketone urine strips or ketone blood tests (which are more reliable). If you are checking ketone levels with keto urine strips, generally, dark purple color indicates the highest level of ketones.
HOW TO GET INTO KETOSIS FASTER?
There are some tips on how to get on ketosis faster. Firstly, increase your physical activity. Exercise helps a person deplete the glycogen stores in their body.
Secondly, reduce carb intake. Ketosis occurs when a lack of carbohydrates forces the body to use fat as its primary energy source instead of sugar.
Thirdly, involve fasting in your daily routine. Fasting (going without food) can help achieve a state of ketosis.
