Yup! I do!
'tia any colour pink will show you're in ketosis, BUT if you're at the top end of the scale you're not in 'more ketosis' you're runnig a bit dry & need to increase your water intake.
what was your result?
Anything above negative (the peach colour) is fine. But remember - not everyone will produce the type of ketone that is detected by the ketostix - but this doesn't mean you're not in ketosis. I showed up fine until my last half stone, and then I never registered at all - even though I was still in ketosis and nothing had chnaged. Was probably my body producing a different type of ketone as it struggled to find fat to burn!
I don't check mine, I think as long as I'm sticking to the diet then I shouldn't really come out of ketosis - bar some reaction to meds or something. I check mine at weigh in (sometimes) and apart from that I never think about it - I just assume that I'm in ketosis.
Just a quick question????? If you are in ketosis are you always burning fat? What I mean is if you eat something u shouldn't have but you are still showing pink does that mean your still burning fat? and what you've eaten was okay?
Just a quick question????? If you are in ketosis are you always burning fat? Yup What I mean is if you eat something u shouldn't have but you are still showing pink does that mean your still burning fat? Yup! and what you've eaten was okay? well yup & nope. It means that what you ate contained fewer additional carbohydrates than would be needed to kick you out of ketosis, so in that respect it was OK.Also if it was a postitive sensible coice you made to have a small bit to eat, then it might well be OK,If you feel you have sinned,got away with it but are determined not to repeat it as you mayn't be so lucky neaxt time,then it was sort of OK. BUT,if it was very calorie laden it would have slowed your loss rate, if it set off the nibbling habit it could lead to coming out of ketosis or even falling off the diet altogether. In which case it's not OK.
I'm was being purposely a bit provocative here....sorry I'm in a bit of a bossy mood tonight.
Was trying to show how mentally, at any rate, there's more to eating extra bits than purely the pink on the stick
Only you know which side you fell.
hope the diet continues to go well.
