You may achieve great results within this carb range, as long as you eat unprocessed, real foods. Hi Stacey, I can’t give medical advice and definitely recommend following your doctor’s recommendations. You can ask him/her if low carb would be better suited for you. Also, you may want to double check with him/her if the kidney concern was related to high protein, XP Nutrition Keto Ultra Burner because that is a common misconception about keto – it is not a high protein diet/lifestyle.People who are committee to SKD often use urine strips that detect ketones in your pee and turn a certain color when you are in ketosis. And you’ll know you’re in ketosis if your breath smells fruity or metallic. That said, there are those for whom a keto diet can actually feel easier, since it's straightforward on what the rules are and may lessen feelings of hunger.
