Just a general question about Ketosis, I'm on day 4 of ss+ and feeling all the symptoms of ketosis, cold/funny taste, but the test sticks are still very pale, I'm I imagining the ketosis, is it still to early or does everyone reach ketosis at different times?
I never had these symptoms. :(
Dont know what SS is.... loads of people saying it :S
Have you tried maybe googling the symptoms?


Nearly there...
Maybe ur drinking so much water it's diluting the ketones??


Mad as a Hatter
I have been told not to worry too much about the wee sticks - as long as you are doing the plan 100%, you cannot fail to be in ketosis...

Hope that helps

With ketosis if u are drinking above n beyond the 2.25litres then you are flushing ketones out which is good if it was really dark purple means ur dehydrated. When u say it's pale is it peachy coloured or a very very pale pink? Sounds to me like you're there to be honest xx

I tend to be in ketosis after 3-4 days when Im restarting so sounds like youre there! A lot of people have different experiences so its hard to pin it down :) generally long as your staying 100% and not feeling hungry thats all you need xx

I'd agree, sounds like you are in ketosis. If you are following ss then its inevitable :)

If not are worried, try ketostix first thing in the morning, as drinking lots of water during the day does dilute urine so reduces the concentration of ketones.

Well done, I'm on day 1 so looking forward to ketosis.

Any shade of pink and you are in ketosis, if its dark pink you are dehydrated.

Being cold and a funny taste are also signs of ketsosis.
