Default In ketosis ....

I always test each morning and Iím in full ketosis now. Does that speed up weight loss now that Iím in the zone. Iím only a week in but have lost 11 pounds so far and hoping for more the next few weeks.

A great article from Amy Berger on being in Ketosis vs. being Fat-Adapted, this should answer your questions:
http://www.tuitnutrition.com/2017/0...ng-ketones.html

Also, since you started 2 weeks ago, understand there is a common pattern to weight loss. After the initial water weight loss, there is usually a slow down in scale weight loss, but instead you have Fat Loss which is what you want. Good explanation of common patterns here: https://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=365499

You are doing great, don't worry about the scale.

Well Iíve been in ketosis every day for nearly a month and only dropped a few pounds (about 4) so all I can say is YMMV.

Oh great article by Amy Berger, as all hers are. Funny I never tested my ketones in any way in over 20 years, but just a month ago bought a Keto Mojo blood ketone monitor. But certainly I refuse to obsess over the numbers. But I do find it interesting to track, but donít think Iíll do it forever.
