TestMedica - Ketone Stix Fat Burning Monitor for Dieters - 100
TestMedica Ketone Stix is a dieter's check for fat burning. Ketone Stix is ideal for all diets including low carb plans.
What Are Ketones?
When body fat is used up, it ultimately breaks down into compounds called ketone bodies. Low carbohydrate (Ketogenic) weight loss diets put the body in a fat burning state. Therefore, the presence of ketone bodies can be the result of fat metabolization. Now you can measure your fat burn quickly and easily with these 100 test strips, regardless of what diet plan you are on.
Why Monitor Ketones?
The more ketones you release, the more fat you've dissolved. Some diet plans try to keep the dieter in the moderate range so that the dieter can chart his/her progress. If the amount of ketones present becomes too large, they can add more carbohydrates; if the amount becomes too small, they can cut back on carbohydrates. Many dieters often check their ketone levels twice per day.
Note: The Ketosis referred to here is what is called Benign Dietary Ketosis (or BDK), and should never be confused with Acidosis - a dangerous state for diabetics and those in advanced starvation where acetone builds in the blood and tissues.
