    Hi all, I brought some ketosticks to check I'm in ketosis - I have done a test and according to the colour chart it's fallible for ketones? (it's a pale pink colour) I can't remember exactly so just wanted to confirm it means I'm just in ketosis - should be a bit darker pink to b fully in ketosis?

    I brought these a while ago so had some left over. Probably won't buy them again. I just like the reassurance that I know for sure I'm in ketosis as don't think CDC test you whereas on LL they use to weekly. I'm just a worry wart really lol.

    Interesting. You have to wonder why LL want to test you weekly. Because the only reason to do it would be to 'make sure' you aren't cheating. Which in itself is kind of silly, because not everybody will get a pink reading, even if they are in ketosis. KD (who used to be a moderator here) never got a pink stick while doing SS but lost 8 stone. :)

    And if you are cheating, sorry, 'pausing' from the diet - then if you lie about that, you're only lying to yourself, really.

    That's v interesting lily, never thought of it like that as LL was my first VLCD I just thought it was normal. Guess if you are on it 100% there is no need to do it!

    I also very rarely showed pink, and even this time around 5 days 100% and no pink. I think its to do with excess ketones x

    I have to admit Ive never understood the obsession some people have with ketostix. Im definitely a believer in that if Im following the plan then I WILL be in ketosis. And if Im sticking to the plan 100% and those damn sticks say Im NOT in ketosis, well theres nothing I can do - so whats the point :)
