BTW i normally do the gym at least twice per week but I haven't been this week cos i felt crap, but i did go last week.

Oh i forgot to say I'm drinking 6-8 glasses of water today, carbonated water and still and green tea and only about 1 cup of normal tea made with that unsweetend soya milk.

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.

I'm with Katie. I have noticed that around two to three weeks in people seem to stall or gain a bit. I'm not sure whether it is because we get a bit complacent and start adding things or because our bodies adapt and stall on certain foods. Get right back to basics, that always seems to help. :)

I agree with Leanne, I tend to think that if we eat sweet things even though it isn't sugar, it feeds our cravings. Back to basics hun.. :)

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.

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

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.

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
