    Hi Everyone

    I have been looking around the site and there are lots of messages about going in and out of ketosis. This may sound dumb to all you peeps out there but how do you know when you are in or out of it? :confused::confused::confused::confused:

    Your breath stinks!!!
    Seriously, you can buy sticks to pee on (ketostix) and if it goes pink you are in (hence the saying "in the pink")

    You'll also notice you have a lovely fuzzy tongue. Oh joy, I cant wait.....
    I found as well that when it kicked in I immediately got a strange taste and sensation in my mouth. I'm just waiting for it now lol, am on Day 4 of SSing! Come on, come on......

    Does your tongue look a bit fuzzy? Just not a healthy pink like normal?

    Thanks Tracy, I am quite chuffed, but VERY glad to be back SSing to shift the last stone!

    I think it took me about 5 days to get into KT, but everyones different. If you have stuck 100% to the plan then you should be in. Have a look at your tongue first thing in the morning and see what its like.

    Failing that, I would buy some Ketostix (but not from Boots as they try to refuse to let you have them). If you do get some, test first thing in the morning, first pee - or you might get a false result if you test later as you'll have drunk loads of water and diluted your results!

    Well, I havent been in to Boots to buy them but a lot of people have, and have been sternly questioned by the pharmacist as to why they want them. I think they will only happily sell them to diabetics. They must train their staff to question ferociously anyone who might be on a VLCD!

    I got mine on Ebay, but some CDCs and chemists sell them too.

    My tongue gets so furry that I have to 'scrape' it few times a day!!! Paranoia makes me think it looks obvious but I'm afraid to look at it in a mirror so I don't know!!

    BUT!! I'm lucky, manage to be avoiding the bad breath. Still eating lots of listerine strip tho, just in case.
