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

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?

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?

Beer has wheat....run.. do not walk, to your nearest druidic priest for purification.
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.
