Last night I had a low of .008, and this morning I was back to .012. I continue to feel good, which is also a reliable marker

This is not "in process," keep in mind. This is after me doing keto for six months, losing 25 pounds, and settling into a menu.

you may be surprised at what he blows, especially in the early mornings, or a few hours after eating a fatty meal (doesn't have to be donuts) or a few alcoholic drinks. I was really annoyed that my parents were blowing ketones on basically SAD. I'm over it now - but hopefully it will serve the purpose you stated.

This was an interesting thread with a few contributors of note - much friendly discussion and uncertainty for sure...

https://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=472278

for yucks and no real insight, a graph of the last two years. Honestly I'm not sure why I keep blowing into it each morning, perhaps just to keep the string alive...



"Keto Shaming" - maybe a new word or concept to get and keep the plant eaters in line!

Have a fine weekend WereBear and all,

Thanks, and wow, do I see what you mean with that graph!

Tested again after no breakfast unless you count my giant coffee with heavy cream and coconut oil.

0.25! My highest level yet. This is reassuring

But to me, this would be when I'd be at my highest ketones, because I am most alert then. Longest fasting period during sleep and I leave a gap after my last meal of the day. Then charge things up with MCT and caffeine (omg i'm a bio-hacker) and cruise. Mmmm. Coffee and keto brain. That's high octane fuel.

One test I do plan to run this coming week is I have it off work and a lovely public beach ten minutes away, and I will start sunbathing and a little swimming. Not supposed to do any exertion, but I can lie down It's supposed to help sleep and reset the circadian rhythm.

Good excuse to buy a couple of swimsuits online, which will come after the rainstorms predicted.

Guess how long THIS special occasion was put off To be clear, I was planning a sunbathing/swimsuit summer in any case, over last year's holidays when I decided to do keto. So I bought too because I have no idea what fits.

Now DH is using the keto meter! It will be a valuable tool to see how his body reacts to various foods.

Thanks to the helpful graphs, I told DH to see it as an In/Out ketosis situation. Since he's in this for health, he should not stray out of it.

I still check myself, especially when I've tried something new, but DH is checking every day and getting competitive. He's lost 50 pounds!

But no matter what, we are both winners
