    Default Cannot get into ketosis

    Hey RX community great site and forum here. I am big palumbo and Rx fan and decided to join. I have done keto in the past but not as strict as the palumbo keto for 250lbs + male. I am in day 5 and love it. Energy is great and carb cravings are minimal..

    But I am yet to fall into ketosis
    This common? Usually i am in ketosis on day 4 when i was doing a less strict keto months back.

    Thank you

    You’re using keto strips?

    They never worked for me or indicated I was in ketosis, however I damn sure was.

    Do a high intensity cardio workout and take a nap right after. If u wake up with a sweet taste in your saliva you're in ketosis.

    If the stix are showing anything then you are in ketosis.
    The number they read is only what you are wasting, not actually using.
    I don’t think that higher ketones = more weight loss, so I would suggest that you are fat adapted and using ketones.
    The fact is that if you are eating below 20g carbs or so, and not dead, then you are in ketosis!


    Weight loss stalls, that is a fact of life. Sometimes tweaks are needed, sometimes is is just a matter of being patient with.


    Your macros look good, so my only advice is keep up the good work! KCKO!

    I never try ketosis and I don't want to waste my money.
