    Is there a limit to how much ketosis you should be in? While on Atkins I always had to keep a close eye on it, as quite easily went into the deep purples, to which I was told to have some carbs to bring it down.

    I bought the stix today and im at the darkest end :rolleyes:

    So long as your in ketosis that's the main thing dont worry about colours. And really the ketostix are really unreliable theres no need to keep checking once you're in ketosis so long as you stuck to the diet you'll stay in :)

    If you follow the plan, you will be in ketosis. Sticks are soooo unreliable and send people barmy! The readings can be affected by anything...water intake, not enough water, morning, afternoon etc....

    For example, you may not of been dark purple at another time of the day after a glass of water if you know what I mean?

    Throw the sticks and trust yourself ;)

    You stick to the diet and you'll be in it within a few days. You'll stop feeling so hungry and your energy levels will increase :)

    You will be if you stick to 3 packs a day and your water. Some people also get smelly breathe and feel the cold more.
