Our expert says:
Luckily ketones are excreted via the kidneys. However, if production is too high for adequate removal by the kidneys at a specific time, then ketosis develops which can cause coma and in severe cases even lead to the patient's death. So once you stop using the zero carb diet your body will excrete any remaining ketones and get back to its normal metabolism. Garlic and onions do not really count as sources of carbohydrate.
