    hi everyone
    was just wondering about ketosis !!!
    do you have to actually have to be at the full purple stage on atkins
    i did a test this morning and i am two away from the purple...how long does it normally take to get in full ketosis ?

    You are in full ketosis now Maz, if you show the darkest purple then the chances are you aren't drinking enough hon :) Mid range on the sticks is about where you should be.

    Coke zero or diet coke is recommended for cravings! I also fins that SF jelly and cream works :D There is a lot of info on google about ketosis and ketostix, it makes for interesting reading

    i wondered if it was because i was having some splenda in my coffee that may have set it off, but i have only had one or two teaspoons a day..its the only sweet thing i have had
    i might try some jelly, i did notice tesco's own make raspberry and strawberry ones are made with sucralose so i might try them :)

    Ketosis is like being pregnant... you either are or are not! Any stage on the sticks means yr in ketosis, the darker you are usually means your more dehydrated or the first few days when yr flusing out alot of ketones. You can also show as beige on the sticks if you drink lots of water, personally I think you can be too hung up on what the sticks tell you!!

    If yr at 20g carbs per day, smell rough & have florescent pee... your onto a winner!! :D
