    I haven't used them but I am almost positive it should be pink. Good luck

    Mine turned purple, which is apparently dehydrated which I have no idea why I would be with 2ltrs down me, so apparently that is ketosis aswell (the purple i mean) x

    Yes the purple is ketosis as well. How long was it between your 2ltrs and testing for ketosis - did you drink your water all at once or was it spaced evenly throughout the day? Alternatively you might just be one of those people who goes into/stays in ketosis very easily.

    I spread it through the day, but had drank around 750ml about half hour before testing myself. xx

    Sounds to me like you're ok then :)...it is water you're drinking, not coffee or black/green tea?

    Nope, I can't stand coffee, and haven't touched tea for at least 10 days now. I hope so, I really thought I was, and now beginning to doubt myself. xx

    Yay, good for you then, sounds like you're doing well :) My ketostix tend to come up dark too even though I'm on 4-5 ltrs water per day.
