We have had a rush on ketone test strips after the recent BBC Horizon programme “Which diet is right for you’ aired earlier this month.
In the programme they showed some of the dieters who were following one of the diets using ketone test strips to check their urine for ketones. The presence of ketones in the urine when you are dieting is an indication of ketosis & that you are burning fat.
This can help to motivate the dieter to stick to the diet. Other popular diets that use ketosis test strips are the Atkins diet and other low carbohydrate diets.
