    how do you know for sure its kicking in or you are 'in it'?
    i have been feeling very weak and lethargic today and having a wee then (sorry for the info) it was totally white and frothy?

    this normal?

    You could get some ketostix and they tell you if you are in ketosis or not by peeing on them

    well for me I never used the sticks, tried to once and made such a mess the wife bollocked me. ;)

    So Ketosis, for me it was stinky breath, a metallic taste in my mouth, stinky flourescent pee, and bad BO.

    LOL>

    Welcome to ketosis. :D

    I dont have BO but my breath smells about half an hour after cleaning my teeth and my wee is bright yellow - sometimes it's quite strong but not always. I wondered is the yelow colour was my vit tablet at work as i seem to have some of the signs but am not losing weight or inches, really.
