    I've seen plenty of other threads asking if the palest colour on the ketosis stix means you are in ketosis or not, but what i would like to know is which shade is the 'ideal' for CD ?? At what point is the colour too dark due to dehydration? Can anyone help please? thanks! :confused:

    i tend to stay between the last 2 shades on the scale even though i drink anywhere between 4 & 6 litres of water everyday!!!

    i think ideal is supposed to be 'moderate' on the scale - a rose pink shade.

    i suppose it depends on each individual.

    I think it's better to test it at night - when you are hydrated.......and mine is usually light pink then, but the next shade darker in the morning before i have my shake and water. x

    i was told the pale one is best as it shows you are drinking enough. you should only have a slight trace in your wee!
