    Hi Guys, I've been ssing now since Monday and still not in Ketosis! The last time I did CD a couple of time and the first time I was in fully in Ketosis, but when I did it a few months ago for 3 weeks, it never happened! -Anyone any ideas what I can do? Or maybe its just a case of- I'm not gonna go into Ketosis! Does not being in Ketosis affect weight loss?

    Any info would be great!

    Am guessing you are using Ketostiks to check if you are in ketosis. If this is the case, ignore those darn sticks, they lie lol

    If you are SS ing then you should be in ketosis mate. What about the other side effects? Any stinky breath, feeling colder?

    Iv been SSing since monday too and Iv only just gone into ketosis.
    If you are using the sticks, make sure you use them on the first wee of the morning, other wise your wee will be too diluted suring the day and wont pick up the ketones.

    I hate to go again the majority here, but the sticks do 'work' lol. they cant lie, uness they are majorly out of date and/or been stored incorrectly in which case Id be reluctant to believe them.

    So try tomorrow morning, first thing. and check the sticks date etc. and if they STILL say your not in ketosis...then, your broke. lol xx

    Its just my opinion. Ketostix are used for alot more than just this diet, and because of thier other purposes have to be quiet reliable. However, I am NOT saying that are 100%. Im just saying I believe they 'work' as in the majority of users see a positive result, but as with everything there are exeptions to the rule.

    I just want to add aswell you dont need to be in ketosis to see big loses.
    That does not mean im saying people who dont get a result in the stix arent in ketosis.

    Dont intend on this becoming a ketosix debate.:)

    As I see it regardless of what the ketostix say, you can't not lose weight when you're only consuming around 500cals a day. I've stopped relying on the stix because I once used 2 at a time and 1 was pink the other wasn't so how's that for accuracy? I think just stick with it and you'll see a loss on the scales. The only time I haven't had good losses is when I haven't exactly stuck to it 100%.

    the sticks are well known for not being accurate at all. my mum's diabetic and even those ones are rubbish and she has gone on to finger pricking to do a blood test to check her reading.

    ignore the sticks.
