    Judging by the graph on Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt's site showing his blood ketones and urine ketones, the ketostix might not be as bad as people have feared.

    The peaks and troughs do track each other somewhat, although things do go a bit adrift just past 4th September:

    Right now I am keeping the straight and narrow. However, at times I am going to want to break out and have a more relaxed approach to the odd meal now and then.

    BTW, the fat bread is outstanding!!!
    It is awesome. About "odd meals" I'm finding the only time those would even come up is when out with friends, so then I just IF and, if pressed, say "I already ate" or I do actually eat before going.

    I'm interested in giving this a try during my deload week from the gym. I want to have as much protein as possible to maintain muscle mass, but I don't want to put myself in the "zone of misery" with too much. Obviosuly, the optimal solution is to get a blood ketone (well, really beta-OH butyrate) meter and test myself, but I am unwilling to shell out the cash for those test strips.

    My "problem" is that I often eat 1, (sometimes 2) meal(s) per day. I've seen the recommendation of ~1.5g/kg body mass, which would put me ~110g of protein. I know that that much in one meal would almost certainly inhibit ketosis , at least temporarily. Would splitting it to 2 meals help? If so, what is the minimum time between meals that would allow me to keep ketones high (insulin low)?

    I saw in the comments on Peter Attia's blog (eatingacademy.com) that he has a post in the works based on his personal experience with IF and maintaining ketosis, but I was wondering if you guys had any insight. Thanks in advance.
    I think trying to break it down by meal is getting into the realm of over-thinking things. There are several "magic formulas" out there for protein limitation to stay in ketosis. The 1.5g/kg of LBM is what Phinney and Volek recommend.

    The ketostix are very accurate as you are going into ketosis. Where their accuracy drifts off however is when you have been there a while and have become very adept at burning the ketones up so very few are being excreted out to measure. Then the blood meter is the only accurate measure.
    I think this kind of measuring is good to get started but, once you have been there, you know what it feels like and measuring becomes superfluous.

    i have a question about things that taste sweet but dont have any carbs in and how they effect ketosis. specifically toothpaste and also i sometimes boil up liquorice root and ginger root for tea. the tea tastes intensely sweet to me but not in a sickly sugary unnatural way. i have always wondered how these two substances effect insulin levels?

    Seaweed: Good question. I read somewhere (sorry, cannot reference it now), that even chewing gum is enough to affect ketosis. Since reading that, I have avoided gum. I brush my teeth a lot, and use the 'mint-flavoured' floss about 4 x per day, but not about to give that up. I look forward to hearing from others on this.

    I was bitten by this bug and have upped my fat and cleaned up the rest of my diet and am down 3 pounds! Big test will be later this month...probably an anovulatory cycle (previous ovarian cyst surgery that I believe damaged one ovary)...and I tend to spiral more out of control with PMS and food cravings when I do not ovulate!

    I think I blew my low carb buzz for sure today, maybe yesterday because I had a little bit of beer yesterday. I wonder how long it takes to get it back?

    To add to that -- just listened on my iPod, and it was worth the time.

    Jimmy's chemistry is a bit off. He said tou can't metabolize acetoacetate. The hostess didn't correct him, but of course you can:

    Fatty Acids -- Synthesis from acetyl CoA: Acetoacetate

    But never mind. It's what his experiences have been like that are of interest here.
