    I've been VLC for the past week, almost ZC on most days. I don't have keto sticks, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me what ketonuria smells like?

    It smells kind of like acetone.

    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

    Well then I guess I'm in ketosis. Is there any danger with being in a permanent state of ketosis? I plan on staying VLC/ZC (most days) to be either in or on the edge of ketosis.

    I've been in or on the edge of ketosis for about 6 months now. Just remember to drink alot of water to keep your kidneys flushed and to help burn off that fat.


    Doubt there is any dangers of being in ketosis.

    I get my Ketone Testing Strips at walmart. 50 for about 7 bucks. Not bad at all.


    I test once a day and go from very high to small so I guess I'm "ketosising" consistently for the last 3 weeks.


    However! Many people who have lost a lot of weight and have had keto-breath have said the strips did nothing for them, so if you do the strips, take them with a grain of salt.


    As for Keto-breath, I don't get it if I drink a class of water first thing in the morning. If I don't have a class of water...yuck...

    i think ive been in ketosis for years. eventually when your body starts to run on ketons then you wont detect them from urin any more. i think grok must have been in ketosis majority of time... why would there be any danger??

    I stopped testing too. I can tell by the taste in my mouth (of my mouth not the urine )


    I combat it by drinking drinking drinking. If I never feel dry, it's not so bad.

    Aarambh hit the mail on the head, it's like a strange, sweet taste in the back of your throat. It's not as pleasant as it sounds, lol.

    I began this Primal journey on December 30th, 2009 and in that time I've lost over 125 LBS.
