When to test ketones after an indulgence?

I ate a serving of chocolate ice cream and am wondering when I should test my ketones to see what the impact was. Thanks!

Just a follow-up... I tested about 2 hours after the indulgence and my ketone level was 1.6. I was 2.1 this morning and am usually higher at night, so I'm guessing I'm seeing the impact of the ice cream. I'm still at 30g for the day so I think there's a good chance its not going to kick me out of the ketosis. I'm going to test again in the morning and will update here.

Are you talking BLood ketones on a real tester or just Pee strips?

If pee strips - don't waste your time, they basically mean very little.

If blood ketone test - your body will give off ketones from the food you ate alone, so doing this at night isn't really such an accurate test. That's why JM tested in the mornings, after 8-12 hours of fasting. This is the most true test.

Thanks Goolash! I'm doing blood ketone testing.

I tested again this morning - after about 10 hours of fasting - and read at 1.6

I didn't know that about the food giving off ketones - very interesting!
