Atkins / Ketosis Strips
Could you advise where I could purchase strips for testing if your are in lipoolysis/ketosis? It is recommended on the Atkins diet (but not absolutely necessary) but seems like a wonderful tool to me.

Dear Ocean Girl
I must warn you that developing ketosis can be a life-threatening condition - your kidneys can get damaged and you can even slip into a coma and die. So think very carefully before you continue with this dangerous practice.
Take great care
