Is this Ketosis?


Hope no one minds me asking this here. I wondered if Ketosis can be so easy to reach.

I must say I am not trying to reach Ketosis, I'm doing Diet Chef, but I have found that my pee smells, I smell and my breath smells and my mouth tastes funny. Sometimes I feel a bit nauseous, but not hungry.

During the day I eat;
Oatso simple porridge - plain
Beef Bolognaise with 1 oz of wheat free pasta
A Trek Protein bar
Pork Meatballs and butter beans in tomato sauce
Some fruit

My lunch and evening meals vary a bit but are always meat based.

Now I wasn't expecting to be in Ketosis but blimey the change in my natural odour! Makes me embarassed to admit it!:ashamed0005:

Is it Ketosis or something else?!

This is really the time!
It is hard to say. Your diest contains quite a few carbs, so from that point of view I would think it isn't ketosis. But, I am not sure if there are other types of eating plans that can make people go into ketosis. Does it say anything in the literature for diet chef.

Personally, I get the funny taste in my mouth. But good oral hygiene and plenty of fluids sorts that. I don't think I smell. My pee is a different colour than it used to be, but never noticed it stinks lol....So, i can't be of any help sorry!:)

Thank goodness it's not just me! Mine was a bit like ammonia yesterday - but I think it's because I haven't been drinking enough.
ammonia is a good description. LOL

You can still be in Ketosis on a higher number of carbs, so just because you are having more carbs than say the recommended Atkins 20g, doesn't mean to say you are not in ketosis. I think its something like under 50g of carbs for more than 3 days and you will (most people) be in ketosis
Sounds like all the symptoms, so I would say you are.

The question is, whether to lose weight or lose all our friends??? Crikey, I wish I hadn't read this thread! I have a cold so can't smell anything!! :sick:
poo, well if your friends leave because you're stinky then they aren't good friends in the first place are they. ;)
