    Hi Everyone, Im new to the diet and started today with no more problems than just feeling hungry!

    Bought some ketostix this morning and was showing negative for ketosis and tonight im halfway down the scale to being in full ketosis already. Is it normal to be at this level on the first day?

    Thanks,

    Hello lee2k5 :wavey:

    Looking forward to sharing your journey.

    Personally, I don't do ketostix as I don't see the point to be honest.

    Were you eating anything and everything prior to today or were you winding down perhaps with lo-carbs?

    Are you doing total solution? If so and you follow it to the letter then whatever you are going to lose fat.

    Love Myr xxx

    Hi Lee2K5, welcome and good luck. How much are you hoping to lose? The first 3 days or so are challenging but once you get over that its just the head battle you have to win.

    Well done for starting. And as for ketostix - don't rely on them too much, or at all. All they do is show up excess ketones in your urine. (Some people don't have any to excess, some people have more than others.) The levels can vary throughout the day, and therefore there is no such thing as 'full ketosis'. Even if there was, the ketostix would not reliably measure it anyway, even though they provide a scale.

    In short, while your body may be in ketosis, the amount of ketones expelled can be so variable (or even none) that ketostix are nothing more than a diverting gimmick. I've got some somewhere, but I don't really bother either. So don't get hung up about the readings, just stick to the diet and you won't go far wrong.

    If you got as far as ketosis on day one, I's say you were pretty lucky!
