I started a keto diet the other day and I think today my body went into ketosis.
I started to feel dizzy and hot at the store today and my arms felt a little heavy. I ate some peanut butter and drank some water in the car and I was fine.
There's no way to know for sure if you're in ketosis without testing your blood. I order these ketosis test strips from Amazon, but then read that normal strips not super accurate. They're the kind you pee on. They do work, but maybe not always. They're only 7 dollars though. A better option would be something like this keto blood tester. I don't know if I could poke myself though.
The main thing I can feel is incredible energy. For the past few days I've felt it coming on and had some trouble sleeping but today I feel like I'm hopped up on crack, No kidding! I feel like I need to move.
I bought some groceries today. Bacon, lard, avocados, peanut butter, sardines and a few other things. I already had butter and a big jug of cold-pressed, organic coconut oil. Of course, the whole idea of the keto diet is to get rid of almost ALL carbs and switch over to eating around 80% of you calories from fat. That puts your body into ketosis after it's gone through it's carb-storage energy. That happens very quickly when you stop all carb intake.
So I sit her buzzin like a little worker be. Totally fired up and tweaking, LOL
