    Question Ketosis....What do I look out for??

    Hi all,

    Excuse the prob stupid question (complete novice) and really sorry if I am being completely stupid in asking.

    I know after 3 days on plan your body starts to go into ketosis, are there any signs I can be on the look out for to identify if I am indeed there?

    I don't want to buy the sticks if I don't have to (plus have no idea how to read them) if there is a simpler way to identify it.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Kara to be honest if you've stuck to the diet then you will be in ketosis, some people get a bad taste in their mouth and bad breath but to be honest the only sign that I have is that I'm freezing, constantly freezing

    I can definitely concur with the freezing part of it! I get very cold throughout the day - I have to bring extra things to wrap myself up in at work! But I also get a strong metallic taste in my mouth as well as it feeling very dry.
    2013 (November)
    Week 1: -11lbs
    Week 2: -3lbs (14 lbs / 1 stone in total)
    Week 3: -3lbs (1st 3lbs)

    2014 (Having gained 8lbs back over Christmas - whoops!)
    Week 1:-11.5lbs
    Week 2: -2.5lbs (14lbs / 1 stone total)
    Week 3: -1lbs (15lbs total)
    Week 4: STS - got back into Ketosis after CNY so I don't feel so bad!

    Hiya,

    I'm doing a TFR diet too I'm in ketosis now. I am freezing, sometimes you get a very intense headache (lasts a day or so) and a dry/fuzzy tongue which unfortunately will accompany bad breath !

    Believe it or not there's virtually nothing you can do to stop this, it may calm down by itself

    Well done on your hard work already x

    **Started again 6 months later, gained a few lbs (like 5 or something)**
    Week 1 - 8lbs

    Yeah if they were affecting your ketosis I'm sure your tongue would return back to normal pretty quickly
