    when is the best time to check when your in ketosis??.......i started SSing on monday.......i checked to see if i was in ketosis on both tuesday and wednesday night and no change at all! i drunk 4 litres of H20 on monday, 6 litres tuesday, 5 litres yesterday.......when i checked this morning after my 1st trip to the toilet it was dark on the ketostick........i thought it went dark when you are dehydrated? soooo does this mean im in ketosis? if i check tonight there will probably be no change but then does it show if you drink loads during the day and your urine isnt as concentrated as it is in the morning???

    hope this makes sense!!!

    Hi yip your in ketosis. The dark pinky purple means you could be a bit dehydrated allright so drink a wee bit more

    yes, the best time is first thing in the morning before you have a drink of water. Becky is right - you need to increase your water intake if it is dark purple.

    To be honest hun, it sounds like you are drinking plenty of water, its just in the morning you have gone all night without a drink so therefore we are always dehydrated first thing, but as you have your water during the day you will notice it changes colour...to a pale pink or even negative result...don't worry as this is what should happen. Welcome to the wonderful (and stinky...breath) world of ketosis. xx
