am i doing anything wrong??

Iv been on cs now for 3 days and i aint showing signes of ketosis. I no it can take upto 5 days but usually by now (on lipotrim) i show signes. I dont drink juice just water (2lt) i have not eaten anything other than fish turkey steak salad and tomatoes and cheese, iv had the odd pickle. my intake of carbs a day including shakes and soups have been no more than 70g except for day 1 when it was 99g. Any suggestions?

Hi there
I think with CS ketosis is less subtle than Lipotrim. I got ketostix and it never changed colour but I knew I was in ketosis because the taste in my mouth could only be described as having licked a thousand envelopes and I didn't feel hungry.
I wouldn't worry at this point - day three maybe a bit early, give it a couple of days....your body is just adjusting.

thanks for your reply. i will check again at the weekend :)

Wow...you did really well on lipotrim. :happy096:

I think with CS you need to think differently about it...it's not TFR....it's a low carb way of eating...the shakes are there to stop you from eating crap....and to some extent calorie control :copon:....

Hope this helps

your right, im thinking way to much lipo!! its just iv been on it since august so at the mo all i no is how lipotrims works. i have a load of q's im gonna ask the chemist lady tomorrow, just hope she can try help me understand it.

I'm not an expert by any means but you sound like you are doing everything right at the moment - I would just give it a bit of time :) Go by how you feel too :)
iv been feeling fine in the day its at about 4am i wake up feeling rubbish like i want to be sick and a bit head achey (well for the lastv 2 days). I dont feel hungry or anything but then again im eating every 2 hours lol. I no i only started this programme on tuesday but im getting weighed tomorrow. I will updat my tracker to what i weigh at the chemist and saturday will become my official weigh in but according to my scales this morning i had lost 7.1lb. But i will see and go off what the chemists scales say. Sometimes mine can have a mind of there own :)
