Been off the wagon for a while but finally back on it and have lost a lot of the weight I put back on (167lbs originally, down to 145, up to 158, now down to 152… probably lower as currently on holiday without scales and am firmly on the wagon!)
My question is, I wanted to find a way to track whether or not I’m in ketosis. It seems to take me a loooong time to get there, and I like to be able to track things with numbers. I’m a couple of weeks in this time around and I’m still feeling quite groggy and tired.
I bought a blood glucose monitor last year after hearing on a podcast (which now I can’t find!) that you could track ketosis this way. My fasting blood glucose is 4.2 most days, and I tracked 1 hour after dinner last night (for the first time) and it was 5.3.
Does anyone have any advice on what blood glucose should be in ketosis? I’m aware that you can have higher blood glucose in the morning but wondered what the ‘normal’ readings should be. Thanks 🙂
