Hi Dolphin,

I really feel for you and complete understand whay you are going though. :)

When I did LL last year I rarely tested in the pink despite hand on heart NEVER cheating, not even a mouthful. The weightloss did contune though and at the end of my 14 week foundation stage I had lost the most of anyone.

By doing a VLCD your body is losing its excess weight the fastest it can so if you are finding that you are able to stick to the diet then continue with it. If you went to another type of diet then just think how little you would be losing ;)

Obviously you need to go be what your chemist says but I just wanted to post this so that you would know that your experience is not unique.

It certainly is worth continuing. I know how downhearted you must be feeling at the moment but I urge you to make the most of this opportunity and to keep going for it.

This is why I don't bother with ketostix. If you are doing the diet right then you can't help but be fat burning. The only thing I would find them useful for was seeing if I was taking in enough water but then last year I was dieting in that really hot summer where everyone was advise to up their water consumption by another 2l's. Won't have that problem during winter ;)

Dolphin, when are you testing for ketosis? Its best to test first thing in the morning, when you are dehydrated. If you test later on you may not be getting accurate results as you drink more water and you dilute the ketones. I only get a positive reuslt, even then not very strong, when I test first thing. Also, how is your tongue? If its fuzzy-looking, you are in ketosis.

If you keep just losing 2lb a week and no more than that, you might as well be calorie-counting and eating normal food, I know I would rather do that if I wasnt losing much! I know how frustrating it is to be losing small amounts - that has happened to me for the past 2 weeks but then I am getting quite near goal and building up muscle so its to be expected I guess...

I'm sorry but I completely disagree with that :eek:

If Dolphin is losing 2lb a week (which surely won't continue at that rate) on an intake of 500(?) cals then imagine what losses would be achieved calorie counting to an intake of double that!

Not only that you don't get the distance from conventional food to think about your relationship with food and you have to use some judgement making it easier to inadvertently cheat.

Each to their own though :D

Indeed, each to their own, but check out Weightlossresources for the facts - its perfectly possible to lose 2lb a week by calorie counting, I've done it myself!
 
#8
i know i couldnt do it by calorie counting ive tried that before with not much luck i have a very low metabolic rate runs in the family . i always test about 4.30 ish and my wee is like water but when i did it last year i tested in the morning so good idea will take a morning sample tomorrow and see if it makes a difference cheers girls will let you know how i get on tomoz
