    I'm not sure if I ever went into Ketosis (didn't ever check), but I had very similar issues when I fist started Primal. I got quite a bit of brain-fog, and I did get heart-racing after my 1st IF (very, very wierd). I also got a bit of a wierd taste in my mouth. But, it all passed. After a few weeks no more fog, no wierd taste, no more heart-racing.

      nina i think your brain fog was probably "low carb flu." Never heard of anyone being foggy as a side effect of ketosis - usually I know I feel very very "clear" in ketosis.

      Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

        I'm not sure if I go into Ketosis ever, I eat lots of veggies. But when I was doing the first phase of South Beach last year, I'd have a sweet taste in my mouth. When I googled, I found out it was an effect of ketosis.


        As for the urine, mine smells of meat on and off. I've experienced it even after a carb-heavy day. And yesterday I had less than 50g of carbs, but my urine didn't smell of meat this morning.


        @paleo_piper: That's interesting. I've noticed off late that I have too much saliva in my mouth really early in the morning and I tend to swallow it in my sleep. Ketosis, perhaps?


        Where do you get ketostix? I looked for it in Rite-Aid and I was told it used to be available back when Atkins was popular, but not so much anymore.

            I would also like to know where to get keto-stix...Im not sure if I have been in ketosis or not...Im sure I have because some of the side effects others are describing, I have had but would like to check it out...does ketosis occur when you are under 50g of carbs?

              You can find them in Wal-Mart, in Diabetis section. They're pretty cheap.

                For me I feel very clear-headed when I'm in ketosis, as well as a little jumpy and really energized, with the fast heartbeat for sure. Sometimes a little bit dizzy. Definitely a weird taste in the mouth and weird smelling pee.

                  After having stayed in it for about a month, maybe a bit more, I will say that ketosis made me stink, have a low sex drive, and a general lack of energy...


                  Carbs around 75-90 = good workout and good sexy times.

                    I agree on the stinky part. I feel smelly and my pee is smelly and bad breath. But I have more energy.

                      I found my ketosticks in Target near the pharmacy. I think I paid about 5 bucks.

                      Maybe I have "low carb flu"? Achiness in muscles.

                      My sleep is not good. I know Mark talks about the importance of it, but how can you sleep when you feel like bouncing off the walls? It's an alert sleep state. I suppose Grok had to sleep like this in order to flee when necessary.

                      I hope this passes soon or my body gets adjusted SOON!

                        I have trouble falling asleep too, but that's because I eat 3,000 calories before bed. :P

                          Uh oh, do I smell and not know it?

                          I&#39;m gonna look like a "Sure? Not Sure" commercial in a second here!
