This was a great read - I went all the way back and read the beginnings of it, too.

Also, I hopped back on the LC wagon after a week or so of crab loading and then 5 weeks of not working out because of a pulled muscle and physical therapy... The scale has went UP everyday since Saturday. Weird. I may cut back on protein a little.

Shrimp loading is the way to go, crabs are bad news ;)

HAHA on my typo. Love it. I was wondering if anyone tests their blood ketones? I was thinking that the second week in January (when I am back from a vacation), that I might start doing a little experiment. I'm on the fence about it.

Another low-carber, praxisproject recently got one ... a "Abbott Freestyle Optium", might be worth checking out with them how they are getting on :)

I still wouldn't mind getting a combined ketone/glucose monitor just for education's sake, if the strips were dirt cheap it would a no-brainer really.

Yes, that's the one I got here in Australia. It looks very similar to the Precision Xtra and is also made by Abbott. For Aussies and Kiwis, the Ketone strips seem to be much cheaper here, I bought mine special order from my local Amcal chemist.

If you've never done a Ketone blood test before, it needs more blood than a glucose one, I wasted a few strips by not using enough blood, I think I have the hang of it now.

Why are people trying this?

Those test strips are rather costly aren't they?
I can tell that I have excess ketones by the taste in my mouth, the smell of my clothes after a workout and by how frequently my wife asks me to go brush my teeth again please.

If I'm going an experiment where I'm using myself as a lab rat to test the effects of a food on serum glucose and ketone levels then yes I want to be able to accurately quantify the effects with numbers. If I'm just worried about how I feel and are some "hidden" carbs sneaking into my diet then how I feel, the afore mentioned indicators, and a urine test strip should be more than enough feedback I think.

I've never once tested myself. I just low carb and love it. That site it's fantastically detailed. I subscribed. His progress is fantastic.

Blood Ketone measuring is for Nutritional Ketosis, not just ketosis (which you can use Ketostix for).

Praxis Project:

What is the difference between nutritional ketosis and regular ketosis? Has Jimmy Moore revealed his menu yet? I'm not sure I could stand that much fat with that little proteins and carbs (taste wise).

thanks

Jimmy said he's not going to reveal his menu because it's just fat... mainly fat. I think I am wanting to test my blood ketones to know when I am in *nutritional* ketosis. Not just ketosis. I also am a Math teacher and I am a HUGE stickler for numbers. I'm really considering this... I know the strips are expensive... so I may do it once a week or something. Ugh. wish the strips were cheaper...

Just bought the art and science of low carb performance and I am digging right in!

I get my strips from Walmart for 6 bucks 50 count

Fluffy - those are ketone sticks. We're talking about measuring blood ketones. They're like $2 a strip.

I didn't end up doing it... but I will if i eventually stall. I wish things were cheaper here. Jealous of Australia!

PS: I had a big LC question that has never been answered and I emailed Jimmy Moore about it and he Emailed back! Is it wrong that I was totally giddy? Haha!

He'll talk to ANYONE these days ;) <Insert whatever smilie means I am only kidding with you>

Already bought my blood ketone reader and strips! Let the testing begin!

What brand and how much were the strips? and where did you get it?

I sometimes get my diet as high as 80% fat. Trust me, it's absolutely DELICIOUS. Also, the higher my fat, the better I feel and the more weight that I lose. Strange, I know.

For anyone looking to try monitoring blood ketones:

I just picked up a NovaMax test kit that includes the lance and the meter and 10 strips for ~$26 at American Diabetes Wholesale. The kit included the free meter.
Just a box of 10 strips is $24 before shipping.

THAT is an amazing deal! Thank you for sharing! The cheapest I can find the strips is $2 each. I;d be interested in anyone that is going to be testing. I will have mine on my profile once I get started!

I read all of Jimmy's blog yesterday and he does reveal his foods.

He's losing weight and feeling great on 85% fat, 3% carb and 12% protein.

I'm gonna edge more towards that myself now.
