    Hi There,
    I'm coming to end of day 3 CDSS - not sure if i'm in Ketosis..? I bought some sticks from ebay but they're still showing negative. Are there any other signs?

    Been doing OK (could knaw off my left arm) and think I'm heading in right direction as I've lost 10lbs according to my scales :eek:. Plus jeans are loose and boobs are already smaller :sigh: - Not sure if it's all just water?
    Hope you guys can help.

    When are you testing? Best time is in the morning as you havent drank any water and the ketones arnt diluted. Check again in the morning. Fabb weight loss so far aswell well done. Have you smelly breat that is usually a fairly good sign? do you feel happy like really happy?
