I will try to pick up some ketosticxs just to confirm I'm in ketosis, but you can tell by your breath, it smells tinny or metallic, like a diabetic's.
The trick to fast weight loss is to keep the blood sugar from rising or spiking (that's what carbs cause). You want to keep it low by eating fat and protein only, or let's say 90% of your diet. Your only carbs should be approved low GI veggies. Unfortunately for me, beer has 13 grams of carbs per can.
* I'm not diabetic, we have a blood glucose monitor for our diabetic dog. But it is made for humans too. My normal fasting blood sugar level is high, (around 6) another good excuse for me to eat low carb.
