going to measure your blood ketone levels
and once you hit 0.5 M/DL and above.

the precision xtra meter but they will give
you a good understanding of whether or not

well but whether you are absolutely out of
ketosis or in, it can help you get that knowledge
and the reason that some people use and prefer
the urine test strips is just because they
are much cheaper than buying the meter and
the test strips that go along with it.

focus and that’s one of the really great things
