I found a great definition of ketosis.
I found this on another web site (http://diet.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Ketosis_Symptoms
) I wanted to make sure to give it proper credit. I only copied the symptoms. There is a complete definition on there.
I was excited to see this cause I keep seeing the threads about urine and bad breath. But I'm not seeing that as much as the dry mouth and buzzed feeling & some bursts of energy. Its nice to have my systems affirmed. Yeah!
Early stage symptoms include the following:
Tiredness or fatigue
Feeling thirsty all the time
Ketosis breath, which smells vaguely fruity and not terribly pleasant
Metallic taste in the mouth, particularly on the back of the tongue near the molars
Nausea or stomach ache
Cold hands and feet
Ongoing States As your body adapts to ketones, your symptoms may change or abate altogether. If you are using ketosis strips, your urine may still show ketones present, although probably in far lower concentrations. This is nothing to worry about. The amount of ketones in your urine does not correlate to the rate of weight loss.
As your body adapts to ketones, you may notice the following:
A "buzzed" feeling
Normalized urination frequency
