Ketones are produced by a process called ketosis. This process (Ketosis) is very well known by
bodybuilders who are preparing for competitions. Ketone bodies produce in conditions where carbohydrate supply is limited to small
doses. Starvation, untreated diabetes, or carbohydrate depletion can put you in a state of ketosis.
Bodybuilders who are preparing for a competition want to enter lean as possible, so they go through a process called
carb depletion and carb loading. This process puts themselves into a state of Ketosis. This assures them that their bodies are
running on nothing but the little fat left on their bodies. The purchase of ketone strips and sterilized plastic containers that
are available at most drug stores will have to be purchased to check if you are in a state of ketosis. Simply urinate in the
container or place in your urine stream while urinating and match up the color it turns into with the chart that is included
with the ketone strips.(THIS PROCESS IS VERY DANGEROUS! DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS BEFORE CONSULTING A DOCTOR)Carbohydrate depletion and ketosis causes extreme conditions of fatigue, confusion, lack of concentration, and flu symptoms. Click here to find out more on Carb Depletion/Loading.
