    Hi again , right i have been on the diet since monday and have gone through the mill , i am now very dark purple on my ketostix and actually feel full of energy for the first time this week. I know this is going to sound foolish but whats actually happening to my body at the moment , i realise im burning fat ( i think) but have i got over the worst of it now and will i sustain these energy levels , or is it up and down ? oh and whats the oink thing ?:eek:

    Hi Steve

    Well done that first week can be tough!
    When I have been in ketosis I literally cannot sit still & I am probably the best couch potato in the world!

    Welcome to the forum Steve0.

    Since getting over the first week, I have been feeling great the whole time of being in ketosis. Makes you feel great. :D

    Welcome Steve :) I am like a whirling dervish too! Beware of the purple though, it means you are not drinking enough water.

    Dark purple is because you are not drinking enough. You could even be in ketosis if the ketostix shows negative. It depends on how much ketones are being excreted at any one time. Sometimes my ketostix showed negative, yet an hour later showed light pink. Have some water as dark pink doesn't mean you will lose weight faster.

    Normally true pam, but not always. Some people naturally just secrete more ketones. If you are drinking enough water and still dark pink/purple (which I normally am) then dont worry, just carry on. xx

    Thanks for that. I was told otherwise by my dietician, but I guess there are differing opinions everywhere!!!

    Ketosis seems to affect people differently TT, I know my breath stank and so did my sweat. UGH!

    I never used the stick thingies but I knew I was in deep ketosis.
