How To Test For Ketone Release
|Health And Fitness : Exercise Guide|
What is ketone release?
Well, when your body is burning fat, ketones are produced by the body. Before you burn fat you are simply burning sugars - in a stage called glucosis - and in this stage there is no ketone release, and the fat is not being burned.
So, how do you test to see which is occurring?
Well, you can now buy ketone strips over the counter which are great to help out in this regard.
Simply place the end in your urine stream as per the instructions (usually start of day) and note the colour change - this will tell you against the chart if you are burning fat or not!
