    Hi,

    I've read a few times today of people saying they are in ketosis and go in to ketosis after a few days... How do you know you are in Ketosis?

    There are usually some tell tell signs hun, feeling thirsty, sometimes a metallic taste in your mouth, lack of hunger, feeling of more energy.. it is usually around day 3/4.

    You'll know. You will not longer be hungry. Your tongue will have a lovely coating on it. Your breath will stink....you will get a new burst of energy instead of the crappy feeling of the first couple of days. Its a fab feeling being in ketosis, but it does nothing for your relationship LOL.
