Hey All, can someone help me out. I'm on day 2 of my induction and I'm a little confused! Reading DANDR I was under the impression the only real factor for entering ketosis was keeping net carbs at or under 20.

On the internet I'm reading lots of Ratios talk... making sure the rations are correct. So what's the skinny? Also, how do I get my Ratios to line up. I've been fiddling with my food choices and it's incredibly hard to get to 20 NC and keep my Carb Ratio at 5 percent.

What should my ratios be? I'm 5'5, 150, med active.

Sorry if this was posted recently elsewhere...I looked and couldn't find an answer to all of my questions!

Protein Shakes
I drink protein everyday, I mix it a couple of teaspoons of Café Bustelo instant espresso. Works well with both chocolate and vanilla protein and is a great way to start the day.
