Dh is following a high protein / Atkins like program. I'm trying to get healthier and I'm including a ton of veggies and fruit in my diet, including beans. I'm also keeping the fat as low as possible. We are Both loosing weight.
Dh has some sticks that measure ketones. On a whim I grabbed one. Sure enough I have moderate ketones in my urine. No idea what it means but on dh's diet this is good.
I'm guessing it has to do with calories, but who knows.
My conclusion? Go ahead and eat that yummy fruit. I eat (gasp!) bananas and apples nearly everyday.

Not sure how you are coming to the conclusion that Atkins doesn't work especially if you are both losing weight. I don't think that the Atkin's diet is for everyone. It made me gain weight while it allowed my friend to lose about 70 lbs. I really like the Weight Watchers diet and was able to follow it pretty well. Everyone is different though so different diets work for different people.

I lost 60 pounds on Atkins but it became to tedious so now I am changing my whole way of eating. So now I also workout four hours a day I only have Starbucks every two weeks and I am working on giving up soda. I walk as much as possible and eat fruit, vegetables, fish and lean meats.
