tldr; I'm looking for an easy, inexpensive product to estimate my ketone levels in a pilot study.
I've been eating a low-carbohydrate diet for a couple of years now and in a recent diet audit (using MyFitnessPal) I found that fat constituted around 70% of my caloric intake. Given that most of the remaining calories come from protein, I would expect to find myself somewhere on the beginning of the "keto-spectrum." Recently, I've become interested in quantifying my ketone levels.
Given that the overly-recommended Precision Xtra is quite an investment, I'm looking for alternative options for my pilot study. As far as I am aware, the cheapest method is urine test strips. But it's a saturated market.
From those of you experienced in this domain, which strips would you recommend and why? I'm looking for something inexpensive, (at least remotely) accurate, and widely available.
Thanks in advance and happy tracking,
