The ketogenic (keto) diet could not be more popular right now. It’s not the easiest diet to follow, but it’s worth the effort for it’s amazing weight loss and health benefits. If you want to make sure you’re doing it right the Keto-Mojo is going to be your new best friend.
The Keto-Mojo is a blood/ketone monitoring system which is able to let us know when we are in ketosis, and how far into ketosis we are. In a market full of other measuring devices, this one stands out as being easy to use and accurate.
When the Keto-Mojo is used regularly, it will let you know when you’re on the right path with your keto diet. As you become more familiar with the diet you will be able to use the Keto-Mojo to check that you’re still in ketosis as you experiment with moving your carb allowance upwards.
The carb limit for ketosis is a very individual thing, and although 20g net carbs is used when beginning the diet, it’s possible that you will be able to have more carbs while still enjoying all the benefits of the keto diet.
The Keto-Mojo will help you to discover your own personal carb limit, and make the keto diet as successful and enjoyable for you as possible.
About the keto-Mojo
The keto-Mojo is a FDA-approved keto monitor that claims to be the most accurate yet. It can also test blood/glucose levels.
In all it can test:
The results are given in mmol, which is the normal medical measurement for blood tests.
You will want a ketone/blood level of between 1.5 and 3.00 mmol.
So, do its claims of being the most accurate meter out there stand up to our scrutiny?
Is the keto-mojo meter as great as it sounds?
It’s certainly a great price, with other accurate meters being sold for many times the amount of this one. As a new addition to the market, we hope they keep the price as it is right now.
One of the things the company claim is that it is quick and straightforward to use, with the results coming in after a tiny 10 second wait.
This is certainly true, and we think you’ll be as pleased as we were with just how quickly the ketone level was displayed.
Other things we liked were:
- The ability to set the alarm, up to four times a day!
- The strips are a very reasonable price, and won’t break the bank. This means that you’ll be able to test more often.
- Good size, well lit backscreen
- FDA approved for use with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
What we didn’t like
It can work out to be expensive when compared to urine or breath meters, but the accuracy is worth the extra money.
To be fair to the company, other comparable machines on the market are a lot more expensive than this one. Keto-Mojo has definitely joined the market place at a good price point.
How to set it up
The whole process is straightforward and only takes a few minutes.
- You need to set the date and year by pressing the yellow button near the battery. There is a quick set up option that lets you skip this.
- You then need to precode your meter by placing the code strip into the top of the reader.
- Twist off the top of the cylinder and insert the lancet. Pull down the handle, and press the button to use it against the side of your finger.
- Place a strip in the meter and add a drop of blood. In 10 seconds you will see your reading.
Where to buy your keto-Mojo
There are several places online where it’s possible to buy this meter.
However, Amazon always comes out as our first choice in terms of price and guarantee. With something as important as your health, you don’t want to end up with a fake product.
We have to agree with the company on this one. The keto-Mojo may be a newcomer, but the accuracy is great, even when tested over multiple times, and the price is good.
The fact that the strips are a great price is a big thing too. Cheap strips mean that you can test more often, and the overall costs won’t mount up over time.
This is the best choice of meter.
