    I used to like the sticks when I did lc before. Kind of helps you to know you're on track between weigh-ins. Stopped me from hopping on the scales every day too. I might get some again.

    Did like the thread title - I wondered if the idea was to sue the sticks if you were pink all week but didn't lose any weight ;)

    Chemists don't like to see ketosticks to non-diabetics. I know people who've had an "are you on Atkins" lecture from a pharmacist. Ebay is the best place to get them, or the low carb megastore but they charge a standard p and p so you'd want to be buying some other things as well if you're getting them from there.

    I hadn't thought of that! That is really hypocritical.
