    my ketosis anywhere?! It seems to have mysteriously disappeared! According to my ketostix I have been out of ketosis for 3 days and as I have also stayed the same weight wise I am presuming this is correct. I have not cheated hand on heart and now I am a little discouraged to say the least. Has this happened to anyone else?

    PS I have tried two different packs of ketostix from 2 different chemists so I can rule out faulty stix.

    Er - never trust ketostix! I think it has something to do with your pee and sometimes you will flush ketones and other times not.

    And don't weigh yourself at home! Its the worst thing you can do and leaves you feeling discouraged and down heartened - which is what you are feeling - so chuck the scales out and rely just on the pharmacies where you get weighed!

    And dont worry about ketosis - if you havnt eaten a single thing and have stuck to water, black tea and coffee and had yer shakes then you are more than likely in ketosis :)

    Hiya are you putting pepper on the soup shakes because the pharmacist told me today not to use it because it takes you out of ketosis!

    I have used pepper and it never took me out of ketosis and it was also recommended by my Pharmacist to flavour the soup.

    Ketostix are just a rough guide, I emailed lipotrim and they said that your water intake could dilute the urine, so you are probably still in ketosis. If you are 100% on the diet you are in ketosis.

    Stick with it, bin the ketostix and go by your official pharmacy weigh in.

    I read this with great interest Poggy as i have had similar this week. My scales haven't moved either!!! I tell you i will be extremely disappointed if i haven't lost a thing this week.

    It is disheartening to say the least,but hey i'm sure you will be fine as there no reason why we shouldn't be in ketosis!!
    Good luck and keep me posted.
