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

LOL, it's great isn't it mate. You know when I was on the first couple of months of induction, I used to go home and have a shower every lunchtime. :(
 
#14
Nobody has complained about my breath, not sure if thats a good thing or not!

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.
