    Morning all.
    Ive been SS for 3 weeks and every morning I do my "pee stick" thingy just to check my ketosis little friend is still with me:innocent0001: Its always been in the middle-ish and have been feeling really good. BUT, last night my family ordered take out and i had some duck, no skin or other yummies, just a little duck (pats own back) and this morning, same as all the other mornings did the "pee stick" thingy only to find it to be deep purple, the furthest colour on the stick...
    So, what does this mean? By eating a little it has put me deeper into ketosis?

    Dont know if im having another blonde moment, i hope some 1 can shine a little light on this matter.

    Many thanks x

    im not sure about this but maybe its if the duck had some kinda sugary sauce or coating. i only know a bit about ketosis from years ago wheni did atkins but obviously sugar = carbs so it could be that??? x

    The purple just means you are more dehydrated than normal I think...

    yup - more glugging needed that is all - prob because the duck had salt or msg in? purple is just dehydration.

    I have the same thing, yesterday I drank dry white wine and ate some salad with smoked chicken. Today my stick is deep purple, whereas it normally is a lighter shade of purple.

    It's probably the extra fat in the duck (very fatty) which the body is now expelling. Ketosis is just the body using the fat store instead of glycogen. Therefore if it's not dehydration it's extra fat slipping out. In any case nothing it's all good. Just keep glugging the water.

    You really do need to drink ALOT more. Purple isn't good! You should be in the first 2 ideally. (pinks!)

    Not uncommon for the stick to be dark first wee of the day - you haven't had a drink for 8 hours!!

    Definitely have plenty of fluid and lay off the duck!! :D

    yes I agree, not had a drink all night so will be purple, I do my sticks about 11am every day and you've had 1st meal and been drinking so should give better reading. Good luck, your doin well, Tiz:)
