  • Is it possible to go into ketosis soon after eating carbs?

    Worked out in the early afternoon and come home around 4pm to eat dinner, which included 1/2lb of sweet potato. 2 hours later and my breath was funky, all sour/metally like ketosis? Can that ever happen? I don't even know if I am in ketosis or not.

    Sweet potatoes vary greatly in size, but an average on has about 20-45g carbs.
    If you only ate half of one, and had been in ketosis prior to eating it, I think it's very possible that it could continue.

    I've noticed similar results when eating just a small portion of carbs and have scratched my head when people talk about one apple or a few almonds knocking them out of ketosis. I guess everyone is different, so I wouldn't rule it out either way.

      Is there another way of knowing you're in ketosis without ketostix or breath? I'm not even sure if my breath is a result of ketosis.

      And I actually ate 1/2lb of a sweet potato. I think that's in the ballpark of 70g or so carbs?

        Whoops. I guess I need to slow down when reading posts.
        I guess that makes it less likely, but still possible.
