Default Not sure if I'm in ketosis??

Moring,
I'm on round 2 of IP, staying OP and feeling great. Today is day 7, I have my first WI tmw. I am not sure if I'm in ketosis tho? Round 1 I think I hit ketosis on day 4 or 5... and I knew because (sorry, I know this is gross) my urine smelled funny and then I got a weird taste in my mouth. Well this time on day 4 or 5 I noticed my urine kinda funny... but it doesn't seem the same as last time? and then the next day I noticed off and on kind of a tingly sensation in my mouth but again, not the same familiar taste from round 1? My headaches also stopped after day 4.

I should definitely be in ketosis by now... but could it be that the signs of my ketosis are slightly different than last time? Has anyone else experienced varying symptoms of ketosis?

Hi There, I'm in week two and question the same thing, since I haven't experienced the bad breath or the urine smell, which I was 'warned' about. But during the first WI I lost 7.8#, which according to my coach was >95% fat loss - a key indicator of being in ketosis.

If you are following the protocol you should be in Ketosis. I have never ONCE tested to see if I am in Ketosis or not. I have just followed the sheet and let the program do its magic. Worrying if you are in Ketosis or not is just an added stress. If you are following the sheet you will be in it My body never did anything different, I did notice the urine smell just thought it was all of the vitamins I was now taking and I had the taste of metal in my mouth, just thought it was my body getting used of eating the correct foods.

Excellent point, last I checked I'd lost 4 pounds so far so I know it's working.. I guess I should just be thankful that this time (at least so far) I don't have the weird taste in my mouth as it's very annoying to me. Thanks for the encouragement

I think drinking lots and lots of water helps with the urine smell and the 'ketosis breath' due to the dilution of the ketones.

Maybe that's it! I think I am drinking more water this time around. So that's probably why the smells and tastes are not nearly as strong Thanks for pointing that out! I feel much better now! I was 90% sure I was in ketosis but my symptoms being different than the first time around was leaving a little worry in my mind...
