According to lipotrim, sometimes the water intake can dilute the urine and it doesnt show on the sticks, but you are still in ketosis. As long as you are following the diet and drinking your expected water intake you will be in ketosis.

Try not to get too hung up on using the ketostix, we can become a little obsessive to them.

I am on day 9 today and I am feeling like that on and off, today especially, and I drinking loads of water and have had a fair few black coffee's, perhaps we should both have one more before bedtime. Yesterday was absolutely no problem.

If you are still suffering from hunger pangs, try splitting your shakes in 2 halves, then you could have 6 half shakes a day instead of 3 full shakes. Also like above, just keep glugging the water and hot drinks. Have you tried any of the leaf teas? I find the peppermint tea is really nice and I mix that with a chocolate shake, thats my favourite.

You will just have to work through it. It's harder if you are not occupied with something. Day 6 was my worst and then....a miracle, next day I felt like a million dollars. Haven't touched coffee or regular tea, just enjoying the water.
