    I done the wee test this morning and the stick was verging on dark pink still - this means Im not in Ketosis doesn't it?:confused:

    On the bottle it says that it should be clear.:cool:

    I have heard others whoop for joy because theirs is dark pink - I am confused!:rolleyes:

    Pink is ketosis and you really need to be one of the first 2 shades of pink, if it's dark, you're not drinking enough water

    do you have any of the other symptoms? cold hands or feet, a sense of wellbeing, added energy, death breath? Sometimes it just doesn't show on a ketostick, doesn't always for me, I can usually guage whether I'm in ketosis by whether my feet are cold.

    First thing in the morning it will nearly always be dark pink due to the fact you haven't been drinking while you are asleep.

    Metallic taste in mouth and cold hands are good indicators of ketosis too.

    Well done on getting to day 4:D

    Ah thanks Lenny!

    I have all of those symptoms - I feel really good - although today a little off, dont want to be at work just want to be at home doing housework! Feel good and in control and happy. Am a little chilly, and my breath is awful, I had to buy some mouth spray!!

    I will do the test again later on - oh no have no sticks will have to pop to chemist!

    Thanks girls I will try and drink 4 litres today.

    xx

    mine is never deep purple and is often barely showing in the morning ... don't want people worrying if they read this and react the same way to ketone sticks as me. They are a guide only. However, deep purple means you are well and truly in ketosis. Yes, it may be deep purple because it is first thing in the morning but it is a good idea to see if it improves later in the day - if still deep purple, definitely drink more and space the water out throughout the day

    If its anywhere in the pink even dark purple you are in ketosis. Best time to do the test is in the morning hun cuz the water you drink today will dilute your ketones and may show neg result even though u are in ketosis u get me?:)

    yes becky but it is important to check she is not STILL deep purple later in the day. But Becky is right, just remember that if the ketone stick shows you aren't in the pink .... it is only due to water diluting the ketones. You are most definitely in ketosis and will be as long as you stick to the plan
