    I have a question for you guys: I know it takes about 3 days to get into ketosis, but I am wondering how the reverse works?
    What do you need to eat (and how much) to get out of it? How long does it take?
    I am asking as I have been making spinach mash for my 6mth old, and have licked the spoon (I know, I know, it is pretty pathetic to be tempted by baby food, but...)
    Have I ruined it? :confused:

    If you have just licked the spoon you should be fine!

    Do you have any Ketostix...you can get them from you CDC or any chemist and you can test yourself to check.

    Just carry on with your shakes etc and remember you are human and these things happen.

    You'll proabably be fine, I think it'd take more than one lick of a spoon to kick you out of the K-zone.

    The ketostix are a good idea if you really want to check badly.
    Otherwise, just keep on with the shakes and even if you did go out of keto you'll be back in it soon enough

    Thanks for replies. I only licked the spoon although what I really wanted to do is stick my face in green spinach and polenta mash and eat it like a hog would, grunting and all hahahaa
    I do have some ketostix but they have been opened for more than 6mths so I am not sure they are accurate any more.
