Tracking Ketones

Recommended Posts

So I'm sure there are people here that track Ketones in some way shape or form.  What is your go to method and why?  

 

Me, I just use the strips.  I'm not concerned about my exact level at the moment just that I'm in ketosis.

I've been doing me to for while. I used fingerprick tests for ketones and glucose for about the first 3 months to get a baseline, but I rarely bother anymore.

 

The ketone breath test is notoriously unreliable but urine tests should be fine.

I've heard a lot about the breath test and I was a bit skeptical so I passed on it.  Glad I did now.  I haven't looked for the fingerprick tests yet.  I found the urine strips when I first started keto and thought I would give them a try.  I like the simplicity for what I'm doing.  Either the strip is a shade of red or it isn't.  Once I get a bit further along I may get the blood test.
