    Ok, I am on day 3 and I have just POAD (peed on a stick ;)) and it has not changed colour.

    Any ideas when I will get into ketosis? I might feel some reward then!

    Hi hun. Apparently it doesn't always show on the sticks. You are normally in ketosis by the 3rd or 4th day if u are sticking to the plan. Xxx

    Well hopefully tomorrow then. I have completely stuck to it- but it's been hard and some of the packs I think are horrid! :eek:

    I wonder whether I'll be one for who the ketosis stciks don't work. Hope not. Either that or I have got a rubbish pack!

    I have always been 100% but in the first few weeks I would not show in ketosis quite often. Logically that shouldn't happen an it really messed with my head so guess what stopped using the sticks. As long as you stock to plan you dont need to worry xx

    Regarding the packs being horrid, do you use the shaker or a hand blender? I found that the shaker never really got rid of all the lumps and yes it was then horrid. But after trying with the blender (I just have a £5.00one from Tesco) they are really quite nice - well most anyway

    Good luck hon, let us know how you get on, xx

    Hi, I'm on day 5, just had my first weigh in, lost 5lbs which is great considering only a part week.
    Found the hot packs better when you whisk rather than shaker which leaves them tasting powdery. For the cold shakes I have a Kenwood smoothie maker and mix with ice so they taste like a real smoothie/thick milk shake, yummy!
    Noisy tummy, no hunger luckily and I hope I'm in ketosis, not sure, how would I know?

    New to blogging so hope it's ok to post here?
    xx:D
