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!

Everyone's body is different but the below link may help you. Also, you should check out the Atkins website if you haven't already; lot's of help and information there too.
