    The sticks are really, really rubbish. For lots of reasons they're really inaccurate.

    Basically, do you feel as hungry as you should, bearing in mind you've been having fewer than 500 cals a day? If the answer is no, you're in ketosis. It can vary how long it takes for a person to get there (took me five days) but once you are, if you stick to SS you will definitely stay there. No point testing!

    good luck for your weigh-in.

    the soft ones particularly are a bit higher in carbs than other CD products. but if you're not feeling ravenous then you're still in ketosis, so no harm, no foul.

    I find that I only get a colour showing on the sticks when I'm dehydrated, if I'm hydrated then nothing, if you've stuck to it 100% you must be in ketosis, or defeating science! I think your just drinking plenty of water : )

    Or... you're not someone who pees out their ketones. Lots of ketones come out on your breath, still more come out of your pores as you perspire.

    That's another reason why ketostix are notoriously unreliable. :)

    I also heard that with all the water that we drink on this diet the ketones are so watered down that they don't register... but that you are still in ketosis.

    21lbs in three weeks.... I'd say you have no worries lol :)

    Don't waste your money on them. They're notoriously unreliable. Stick to the plan and you'll be in ketosis

    brilliant, this explains a lot! i was worried that i was showing up colour yesterday but not today. im not hungry so i must be in ketosis, but i only get colour on the ketostix in the middle of the night or the morning, so it must be dehydration, thankyou!

    Once you're in ketosis you'll stay in ketosis unless you go off plan. You're either in it or not. So now you are in ketosis throw the sticks away. Don't drive yourself nuts testing unnecessarily
