    hey great loss :D well done!!

    the tub has a colour guideline on the side for you to measure against, i believe you are meant to be in the lower pink colours. i tested as having traces this morning.

    and is that good if you have traces of ketones in your urine ? i take it that means your body is in ketosis

    Fab loss hun!!!
    For the stixs.....if you are in the very dark range you are not drinking enough water (but your first wee in the morning would normally be a bit darker). You should be from the mid to pale colours and yes they mean you are in ketosis. No change in colour means you are NOT in ketosis......At least me thinks!!! Well done again!

    Well done on your loss, great start.

    As for the stix, you don't really need them if you are not cheating and losing weight but for best results test first thing in the morning as that is when the ketones will be most concentrated. If you are drinking plenty the water will dilute the ketones and if the stick is dark then, as Sara said, you need to up your water intake.

    Good luck.

    if u just lost 10 pounds then u dont need to test - i think it is working!

    I think the only time u should test is if u dont have a good result - u might want to check then to see if u have maybe knocked urself out?

    I think it depends on the company and what dye they use to determine if you are releasing keytones in your urine.

    Well done on your weight loss laughinglaves!! Great work!!

    As for the stix, I have never used them....... I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one!!

    Didn't your CDC go over it with you?? I thought they would have done.

    Ketostix say you have to put the stick in a cup (how inconvenient) and wait EXACTLY 15 seconds. I held it under my pee flow and read my result after approx 15 seconds. Is that ok? Why the big emphasis on putting the stick in a pot? Pregnancy and ovulation tests can be done under flow so I thought....
