    ok so just ended day 4 on SS.

    bought some Ketostix as recommended from boots today - and i am the 2nd from lightest colour.

    or am i still losing water and not burning fat yet??

    My cdc said, if you drink the water of which your suppose to be drinking, then the stixs should go the lightest of pinks, if it goes any darker than you are not drinking enough water and your body is still dehydrated, she said drinking water dilutes the colour on the stix but you will still be in ketosis, hope this helps!

    Welcome to ketosis!

    Night all i have to go get in shower, i keep stalling...xx

    Yep, as Minz said somewhere else, it's best to be on a very light pink - it shows that you're hydrated enough :)

    You would have been drinking water all day at this point so it doesn't suprise me it LOOKED like you were out of ketosis but I'd bet my life on it you weren't! When you've drunk a lot of water you've flushed out a lot of your ketones so it does appear very pale if it appears at all (like you found last night!).
    It's like if you weigh yourself throughout the day(not a good idea either), at different times of day you're going to weigh different amounts, it's exactly the same when testing for ketones, it will be pretty dark in the morning due to not drinking all night (you'll be a bit dehydrated) then at night it will be very light if it even shows at all because you've been drinking all day (you'll be very hydrated).
    I hope this helps hun.;)

    best time to check is in the morning 1st wee of the day. Any pink and you are in ketosis the darkest pink suggests you might be a wee bit dehydrated aswell but if your drinking plenty of water dont worry about it :) i drink 4litres and sticks go dark
