The human being and many of the animal species have an organism willing to survive various circumstances. Normally, the tissues are exclusively nourished by specific nutrients such as glucose, but there are circumstances where the body does not has this and must resort to other options to “feed” the brain, organs, muscles, among others.

When there is a prolonged fast or a diet poor in carbohydrates and the body is deprived of glucose, it will look for options from where to get energy to survive and begins to metabolize the storage of fat, which brings with it the release of the so-called “ketone bodies” that basically supply the glucose in each of tissues.

If you wonder how to get into ketosis , there are several ways. In general, there are details in common that indicate that this normal process of the body is happening and it is the smell that people who are in ketosis produce and this can be in breath, sweat and even urine. Here’s how is urine in ketosis.
