    Hello,

    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?!

    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.

    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.
