    Unhappy Not Even In Ketosis......

    So.... my consultant gave me a couple of ketostix (or whatever they are called) and I am not in ketosis, the colour didnt change at all!!
    Im really annoyed after 8 days but I guess that explains my constant starvation feeling. Im still pretty annoyed though

    I wouldn't worry to much about this. I had this a few times in like weeks 6 & 11 even though I've never cheated!! I've stopped using them now. As long as your losing which you are I'd forget about them. The only time I'd use them now is if I'd had a night off and wanted to test that I was out of ketosis so it was safe to drink.

    Just to check though, there's nothing you've had that you shouldn't of? Anything like fruit teas or diet coke?

    Also just to add I felt awful until day 10 so still with it. Was like I had the flu and was starving!!!! X

    Thanks Liz! My consultant said not to worry also, as I was losing weight and seem to be having the cold hands and feet etc, and these are normally symptoms? Its just annoying as I feel starving all of the time, whereas with ketosis on Atkins, it kicks in within a day and my hunger goes straight away, so I kind of had a feeling that I wasnt in it as I know what it feels like. It just makes this so much more hard work for me.

    No, I haven't had anything, 3 products a day, lots of black coffee and peppermint tea, around 3 litres of water per day, on about 4 days Ive had tuna (180g) or 2 eggs, and also coke zero (which I was told is ok)??? Maybe it isnt? I also take berocca everyday - I wonder if this might not help? Please do let me know as Im willing to try anything not to feel hungry...

    As for day 10, great.....!?! I havent suffered with headaches at all (touch wood) but Im constantly feeling starving and since Friday Ive had a sore throat and a cough, haha - just put me down now! x

    Just a thought, if you're saying you were given the ketostix by your consultant, you've no idea as to how old they are, how long the bottle has been opened etc?
    It may well be that you actually are in ketosis but it's your stix that are not registering properly as I definitely am in ketosis but still get hunger pangs! X

    I had cold hands early and late in the diet.

    As for the ketostix, mixed results dependant upon how much water you drink. I used to say to myself that when I felt hungry my body was eating the fat. It sort of helped.

    Good luck x

    It sounds like you probably are in ketosis if you've got some of the symptoms. However, I would guess that Berocca is full of citric acid, so is probably a no-no. Check the website or ask your CDC for confirmation.

    Thanks Anne, thats a very good point! She went and got them from her bathroom, but as you say she may not have used them for a while and I had no idea about an expiry date! I have ordered my own which should be with me today or tomorrow so I will have a play around with them and see what happens x

    I googled it and it definitely has citric acid in, I asked my consultant and she said she didnt know if I should have it or not? So Im just going to stop it and see if that helps x

    I would definitely stop the berrocca. You don't need it anyway as the three Cambridge products has all your vitamin and minerals for the day.

    On the whole, very good, not suffering too much, the hunger I'd generally under control and the weight loss is good. Unfortunately had a major blip yesterday, had family round and just went completely to pot. Back on it today though so going to be a bit rough till I get back into ketosis. I'm keeping going and that's the important bit. X
