    Your CDC will probably have some. I tried to buy from Boots and Superdrug and couldn't get any.
    My friend tried to get hers from a chemist but they wouldn't give them to her as she wasn't diabetic!

    Chemists do still sometimes get stroppy as they don't approve of ketogenic diets!
    I have been turned down before from lloyds. I got mine from Lloyds this time, but they are cheaper from the CDC.

    I'm a bit intrigued as to why you want them, though.

    Your losses are looking great. There's very little doubt in my mind that you're following the diet 100% to get losses like that - so why on earth would you want the additional expense of buying a pot of sticks just so that you can watch one turn pink? In fact, I'll just add that there are a few people here on the forum who've never seen a stick turn pink - but have very successfully lost shedloads of weight.

    Sorry to rant - but the whole testing for ketones thing drives me nuts. Maybe in the very early stages of the diet, it's nice to know - but after that?? :confused:

    Ketosis keeps you from being too hungry on this diet - but it's the lack of calories that actually causes the weight loss. Being in ketosis doesn't accelerate weight loss on CD.

    Right, rant over. :)

    I would go to a pharmacy which does Lipotrim as they will be used to selling ketostix to vlcd-ers.
