    If you wanted to really get dialed in, though, Jin is right. You have to do the blood pricks, but damn those things are expensive.
    It's gets pretty obvious you are in ketosis when you can have a tablespoon of coconut oil, and half an avocado, workout for 2 hours and still not be that hungry.

    The only thing I would change if I were to have a do-over, is take in more protein. I was worried having my protein too high would kick me out of ketosis, but it appears that is broscience for the most part. I stay in a deep level of ketosis (12 mg/dl) even at 1.2 grams of protein per pound.
    Your macro ratio that you read about everywhere online and watch YouTube videos on is not necessarily broscience, the problem is most and by most I mean like 98% of everything you read online about ketosis is actually talking about medical ketosis. As in the type of ketosis that they treat diseases with at a hospital. Those medical ketosis guidelines are a lot more strict than what we need because they are using it to fight a disease not get shredded for the beach.
