I broke into SS gradually by cutting down my meals and replacing them over the course of a week with shakes.

Yesterday I completed my first day of sole source and felt fine, no hunger pangs, no headaches nothing!!!!

I am a wee bit emotional today :cry:but not sure whether that is to do with the diet or not!!!!

So anyway getting to the point how do I know when I am actually in Ketosis?

Thanks for your help!

I bought some Ketostix test strips to confirm. Also have a funny taste in my mouth and cold hands and feet.:)

After 4-5 day's of ss, u go into ketosis, u can buy ketostix fron ur chemist to test if u are. Good luck with the diet.

I've never used testing sticks, not when on CD last time (before having my baby), or this. Knowing me, I'd get obsessed with testing all the time & drive myself nuts!

I get the odd taste in my mouth, a whitening to my tongue and (unfortunately) bad breath :eek:

I sometimes get really cold hands & feet too, although not always.

Good luck

Bad breath is the most noticable thing i have found. Thats when i no im in ketosis....

If you have been hole heartedly SS with no blips then by the 3rd day you will be in ketosis.
