What are Ketone Sticks?
Ketone sticks, also known as Ketone test strips or Ketosticks are used to detect ketones in urine. Whilst the Medical vita Diet is based on the “Protein Sparing Modified Fast”, it is also known as a “Ketogenic Diet”. On the Vita Diet, a person’s carbohydrate intake is restricted over a short period of time causing the body to use its backup energy source, the fat cell.
When the fat cell breaks down it releases ketones into the blood stream and later into the urine. These ketone traces can be monitored using the Vita Diet Ketone Sticks, enabling Vita Diet fat burning results to be tracked.
As well as personal motivation, (i.e. You see real results each day) Ketone sticks provide a safety check that you are not burning fat too quickly. LARGE TRACES OF KETONES MUST BE AVOIDED.
The Vita Diet supplements and meal plan have been designed to promote a “mild ketosis” state, making the Vita Diet a safe option for maximum fat burning results. (Please read p.14 in the Guide to the Medical Vita Diet for more information on Ketosis and Ketone sticks)
