This is for life
My suggestion would be dump all the sugar free stuff and no atkins bars. Then up your green veg significantly. oh and avoid tomatoes

Good luck!
Many thanks.

Funny you know, when i typed down the list and I saw the sugar free stuff, i thought i wonder if anyone suggests going back to basics! :D

It's hard to break the convenience food / sweet tooth thing. I've been doing it all my life, it's like a habit.
Right then i got my keostix just now, I've weed:D on one and it's showing at 1.5 mmol/L (15 mg/dl) ( the third colour along)

Is this ok? not that i want to get complacent cos i don't.

Also I've had 4 glasses of water so far today.
if the sticks are showing any colour at all, your in ketosis, it doesn't matter what shade pink they are but if your showing as really dark then you prob need to drink more water.


Determined to succeed!
Nude is generally not showing ketosis, or only trace ketones... but it can change so quickly. Best time to test is first thing in the morning xx


" If at First".....
I have Atkins original book & in it he says, go for purple. Of course there's been a lot of books since so the rules may have changed, especially since his death. I'm sure he would have frowned on the Atkins products like those bars. I have read somewhere that his widow dissociated herself from "Atkins" as it is now. Of course in twenty years things do change but for me the bars are a no-no.
I go in and out of ketosis very quickly, can tell if I'm in by the number of times I need the loo !
Sorry to be dumb but what do you mean I'm going to the loo loads but thought that was cos I was drinking so much ? Sorry I was on vlcd bit really struggled to get the shakes down so am trying 2 shakes n 1 meal with hardly any carbs but seem to have stopped losing

As far as i understand...It's your body getting rid of the excess acetone so you pee more often but not necessarily a lot each time. So your in ketosis and your body wants rid of something it can't use xx
