Hi, I hope you don' mind my copying the answer I gave to JSTETSER about ketosis. Here it is: Ketosis, also called nutritional ketosis to set it apart from Ketoacidosis, which is a dangerous state of too many ketones in diabetics, is the fatburning state of the body that is the reason why low-carb works. It means that the body is not dependent on glucose or glycogen for most of it's functioning but can use ketones, that are made from fat, as energy. There are several ways to measue if one is in ketosis but the most common are ketone measuring stix that are a urine test that can be purchased wherever diabetes supplies are sold. It is very inexpensive with about 50 test strips for about 7 dollars. Here is a good article that covers the basics: http://eatingacademy.com/nutrition/ketos is-advantaged-or-misunderstood-state-p art-i If that is more detail than you wanted any Atkins book will explain it in simpler language and there are several threads on the low-carb forum.

Hi Sarah -- thanks for visiting my blog; there is a photo there, so ???? why you can't see it. Can you see photos on other peoples' blogs? (or the photos on my "info" page?) Might be something to ask the techs about -- weird.
