Ketosis is caused by a lack of carbohydrates that are used to be burned for energy. This results in the burning of fat and the creation of ketones which are used for fuel. Use a blood-testing meter to find out what your ketone levels are – ketone levels at or above 0.5 mmol/L mean that your body is in ketosis. Your ketone levels may also decrease after the initial increase, but this doesn’t mean you’re not in ketosis anymore.
