Question About Ketosis

I am into the 3rd week of the BP Intermittent Fasting Diet.  I feel great and am losing weight.  The ketostix show that I am in ketosis in the morning hours.  All is well.  But what I don't understand is how I can be in ketosis and still have a blood sugar reading that is on the high side of normal.


 


This is one definition of ketosis I pulled off a website:


"Ketosis is a metabolic process that occurs when the body does not have enough glucose for energy. Stored fats are broken down, resulting in a build-up of acids called ketones within the body."


 


Seems to me that blood sugar readings on the high side or normal would indicate that I have plenty of glucose for energy.  Can someone please help me with what am I missing?  Thanks
