Got a quick question: IS Medifast okay for a 14 year old? Hoping for any response. My other question... Hello, I have a guestion. How do you know that you are in Ketosis? What do you have to do to make sure you stay?..

You betcha! however you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm this as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you ask the Medifast guys because they can assist you better...

I didn't mention specific symptoms of ketosis because not everyone experiences them. Urination increase frankly has more do do with the ginormous amounts of liquids you take in..

Welcome to MF...

I believe everyone is different, but I knew that I hit ketosis on my 5th day because I had this weird metallic/sour taste in my mouth. It was driving me crazy all day until I realized what it meant! I also recognized that I wasn't as hungry in between meals and I had more energy than the first 4 days of MF...

I didn't notice an increase in energy but I definately have a terrible taste in my mouth every morning. I like to log my food intake on myfitnesspal to keep a running tally of my carb intake. Hope this helps...

I use strips and they register. You can buy them in pharmacies or online. It's nice to get them prior to starting because you can judge the difference between your neutral and Medifast status. Mine fall in the low to mid level...yes nit as much as Atkins but I also feel much better than when on that diet...

Comment #5

Medifast suggests not using them because they are not always accurate and not everyone registers. The amount of water you drink can affect the reading of the strips as well...

I am really hoping I am in ketosis ,as this is the end of my first week and the first few days I felt awful! I am not really too hungry and I did notice a slight taste in my mouth .I got the strips and did not register and continue not to.I didn't realize the strips weren't recommended .Could eating an extra cup of salad at my l&g in the first few days effect my ketosis?..

Nomore, probably not because lettuce is very low in carbs, but I wouldn't make a habit of that...
