Want to test for Ketones? We use the Ketone Breath Test from KetoScan.

If you look at the cost of blood ketone tests (the other accurate method) you’ll find the cost of the unit is just a small part of the overall cost. You also have to purchase replacement strips which can cost over $30/month depending on how often you test. We love the breath test because it requires no strips and multiple people can use it. It’s also fast and easy 🙂

  1. My wife and I have been on strict keto for the last month, we have had exactly all the symptoms you described, I am fasting 16-8 and doing 30 mins treadmill, we both have only lost 1 to 2 lbs, we eat under 20 carbs a day, two healthy protein and vegetable meals , almost no snacking, really disappointed in the weight loss hype, but we will stay on it because we are rarely hungry, and the food is pretty tasteful, I seem to have a steady energy but less when I demande more out of my body, I run low on energy when doing really physical work. I read all these crazy weight lost from people but not us

    ❓Dr. Ryan says, “Prüvit is the only company that has, when it comes to the ketone technology, that right key for your cells that it recognizes and opens ups the door for ketones to come in and be utilized at the cellular level."

  3. I have been keto since January 1st 2021, and l have noticed my body smell and urine are stinky. This worried me, thinking I've got diabetes type 2. But I'm trying to prevent that happening by ditching carbs. My BMI is 51, enormously overweight, and struggling with arthritis which prevents me doing any cardio. Thanks for the info, I've joined your fb page.

Then aroun 4pm I got my ketosis monitor amd tried it…I though it was broken because it was stating I was in ketosis already. I was waiting to feel like crap amd to be constipated and I'm at the opposite so I think that's good? Idk… i need more days to make sure this isn't juat a one day thing..
