    Hi everyone,

    Im new here today is my 1st day on lipotrim altho i did do it for a week a fortnight ago and lost 8lbs (due to money probs i couldnt continue at that time) so this is technically my 2nd go at it. im currently 13st6lbs 5ft3 and high bmi and my target is to get to about 10st maybe lower if i can.

    I bought some ketostix for measuring ketone levels to see when im in ketotsis but iv no idea how they work andi was wondering if you guys could help me?which one on the cart on the bottle means ur in ketosis?

    thanks and good luck to you all :)

    Hiya

    On mine they go from a peachy (neg: 0) colour to dark purple (++++), I *think* when your in ketosis it should be the deep pink (++) or next one in raspberry colour (+++). Ive been told that if it hits deep purple (++++) your dehydrated.

    Hope this helps x

    Well on the ones I use... As long as it goes pink or purple you are in ketosis... Doesn't matter how dark as that depends on what time of day and how much your drinking...

    So as long as it's on the scale of showing ketones your in ketosis lol I think

    Thats exactly what the chemist told me too, she said to aim to be dark pink which if memory serves me correctly its 3rd one down (from the purple end)

    Wow I never knew about these, I remember my friend talking about them when he was on Atkins if my memory serves me right. Are these the best way to make sure your in Ketosis then yea? Best of luck aswell love x

    It's only *excess* ketones that are detected by the ketostix so as long as it changes colour, no matter how light pink it is, it's positive for ketosis.
