    I started CD last week and had a really picky week and didnt really stick to it so only lost 1lb. I started again and have stuck to it 100% since Thursday so did my ketostick this morning (day4) and it was negative/trace. How long did it take you to get into ketosis? and when shall i re-test?

    usually around 4 - 7 days test first thing in the morning as lf you test later in the day all your fluid intake may dilute your reading,

    I always get into ketosis on day 4 . Now you say your stick was neg/trace ... which was it ?? even a trace of pink shows ketosis there arent 'degrees' of ketosis .. you are either in or not .. it shouldnt be too dark pink as this can show you are dehydrated too ... so the best place to be in pale pink :)
