How to Know if You’re in Ketosis

  • Increased urination. Keto is a natural diuretic, so you have to go to the bathroom more.
  • Dry mouth. The increased urination leads to dry mouth and increased thirst.
  • Bad breath. Acetone is a ketone body that partially excretes in our breath. It’s usually temporary and goes away long term.
  • Reduced hunger & increased energy. Usually, after you get past the “keto flu,” you’ll experience a much lower hunger level and a “clear” or energized mental state.
