    For the people who used ketostix.
    What color shows it for you?
    Mine shows 2nd one - a bit like peachy(which is like trace ketons). Can you be more or less in ketosis? Or maybe it doesn't matter?

    If its pink at all then your in ketosis, the strength depends on how much water youv been drinking too.

    If you pee on the ketostix first thing in the morning, before you've had any water and the ketostix is purple, you are in ketosis. Sometimes, if you drink a lot of water during the day, then pee the colour is pink, like the water dilutes the colour. But if you go when you're dehydrated i.e. 1st thing in morning it will be purple if you're in ketosis.

    then i dont know why mine shows different?
    But in the morning it showed moderate ketons (in the middle of the scale).
    Can you be in bigger or smaller ketosis?
