    Ended today 31g protein over.

    I had a question though to those of you who use Ketostix. Mine never get darker than having a "small" amount of ketones. Is that normal or should they be getting darker?

    I never used ketostix but I know from reading that when you are keto-adapted, you will not flush much ketones with your urine. Ketones will preferably go to the brain, while muscles will mostly burn free fatty acids directly (yeah, that's what true keto-adaptation is). Muscles can burn ketones but eventually, if absence of glucose is becoming the norm, the brain will feed much more on ketones. And that's good because it improves many things up there And muscles running on free fatty acids is great, it means that you can eat butter and burn it right away

    Marissa, any level of purple means you are in ketosis. I'm actually going to test in a week to see if I am still running in ketosis on my new n=1 plan.

    Morning Measurements 7:33 am

    Ketones: 2.3
    Glucose: 72
    Weight: 208.6

    I'm a bit shocked by the loss in weight. I was just at 212 a couple days ago. It's like a roller coaster ride, clicking along up the tracks and all of sudden a quick downhill ride, then back up again and then down again. When I started, i was at 213 then down to 209. Hopefully next week, I'll go to 211 and then down to 207.
    Wondering if the couple of days of 2000 kcals kicked started it. But I did eat 2,280 kcal yesterday with a higher than normal amount of protein. So confusing.

    Um, Marissa, you just let a spambot get your goat. Breathe. It gets better. Really it does.
