    Hey all!

    How many of you actually have your ketosis level checked by your CDC. Mine said she doesnt check it for me but I can buy the sticks at a chemist if I want to! Is that right?

    Thanks
    Lydia xx

    Bad breath, not feeling hungry any more, headaches and restless sleep to start with, more energy. Obviously not everyone has all of these, not being hungry is the most important for me:)
    Mine does not check either x

    I brought mine from my local chemist for about £4 for a small tubfull i think it was.

    They sell then on EBay too.

    You just wee on the end of the stick and if it turns pink your in Ketosis.

    If you are sticking to this 100%, you can't not go into ketosis so you shouldn't need to check...

    Yeah, but peeing on a stick can be a good distraction technique.. "Hmm I fancy some food, but I'll just nip to the loo & pee on a stick instead!"

    I think if the stick confirms it, it should keep me motivated not to cheat too!! x

    i think most councillors dont check unless you want them to. My councilor gives her clients a few sticks a week to check on their own, more for motivation than anything else.

    I bought mine from Tesco's. I usually check once a week - for motivation and to check I am not dehydrated.
