    Hi!

    So I am desperately worrying that I am going to do something wrong and end up not going into ketosis... Its all new to me!

    What do I need to look out for?
    I don't want to use sticks particularly, so i am looking for physical symptoms...

    Also how many days in should I be looking to feel things happening!?

    Thanks in advance
    :thankyou:

    Hi, can only speak from my own experience really but after 3-4 days I stopped feeling hungry and craving things and had a strange metallic taste in my mouth. Kids also told me I needed to brush my teeth more because my breath was smelly! I also started feeling really really thirsty with a dry mouth. I never bothered with the stix either. Good luck, I'm sure you're doing fine!:)

    I didn't worry about the sticks either - and I know as soon as I go into ketosis - the metallic taste in the mouth, thirsty, and funny smelling wee (sorry!). Happens 2-3 days after I go back on induction.

    I don't know if the taste goes or you just get used to it. I didn't appreciate ketosis until I came out of it!
