I have been wondering if people with ATDs can enter ketosis. Many people on low carbohydrate diets reach ketosis or fat burning when the body no longer uses sugar but breaks down fat into ketones. If you are in ketosis, you should be able to lose fat. So why is it so hard to lose fat in ATDs such as those on this website?
I put up a little survery to see if people with ATDs are able to go into ketosis. You can buy ketone sticks to test for ketones in your urine. For example:
Shop around for a good price.
Some people need to fast for 12 hours before testing their urine after eating a small meal of low carbohydrates the night before. Some may need to fast for three days. Some people may use up their ketones in their blood and not pass any into the urine.
