Here we are on day three of my blog series on the Keto Diet. If you missed Day One: What the Heck Are Macros or Day Two: Is Keto Flu Real? catch up on those first before reading this post. I think the question on everyone’s minds is, “How will I know when my body enters the healing, fiery, uber healthy, fat-burning state called ketosis?” Well- it’s simple. You need to get yourself some Keto Test Strips (affiliate link). Easy. In this post I’ll share how simple it is to use Keto Test Strips (no blood involved- promise!), and where you can buy them.
So let’s talk about Keto Test Strips today!

If you’re a Keto Diet Beginner you’ll want to start with this post where I share the basics with you as I learn them along my journey. That post will explain a bit about the metabolic process of ketosis which is what you’re trying to achieve by eating low carb, high fat, and moderate protein on the Keto Diet.
Keto Test Strips
Now that you have a basic understanding of how to control your diet so that your body can be enter the metabolic state of ketosis, you’ll be eager to figure out when you finally get there. Here comes the need for Keto Test Strips. Not only will they let you know that your body is definitely in ketosis, but they will reassure you that you’re maintaining ketosis on a daily basis.
This is the brand of Keto Test Strips that we prefer to use, and they’re available on Amazon Prime so you’ll have them in your hands super fast without having to search the aisles with your toddlers in tow!
How To Use Keto Test Strips
To use your Keto Test Strips you’ll unscrew the cap on the bottle, remove one strip being careful not to touch the test area (the colored square in the picture above) then close the cap. Sunlight, moisture, and extreme temperatures can damage your Keto Test Strips.
Collect a very small amount of your urine in a clean container. Dip just the test area into your urine sample and immediately remove it. Wait 40 seconds then compare the color of the test area square on your test strip to the chart on the bottle. Simple as that.
If you choose to purchase a different brand than the one I use the instructions may vary. I really like the brand I’ve chosen because it’s a great value for 150 test strips, and the result chart is easy to read and understand.
