The main goal of the keto diet is to eat a lot of fat, a moderate amount of protein, and very few carbs, thereby putting your body into a state of ketosis.

Ketosis is a metabolic state that occurs when your body begins to convert fat into molecules called ketones and use them as an energy source instead of carbs.

If you don't exceed your macros limit (fat, protein, net carbs), entering ketosis usually takes 3-7 days. The exact amount of time depends on the individual characteristics of your body and many other factors.

At this time, you may experience some symptoms of the so-called keto flu - headache, muscle cramps, difficulty sleeping, foggy brain, nausea, constipation, irritability, and fatigue. Fortunately, this condition usually lasts only a week and you can alleviate these symptoms by drinking enough water, taking electrolytes, and getting plenty of sleep.

Measuring ketones is a crucial aspect of understanding and optimizing your state of ketosis on the keto diet. The Keto-Mojo Blood Glucose and Ketone meter recommended by the Keto Diet App offers a reliable and convenient way to monitor your ketone levels. By obtaining instant ketone readings, you gain valuable insights into whether your body has entered ketosis and is efficiently utilizing fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.
