i have just got my 1st lot of these sticks. had a go and it was 0.8 and 2nd from the end colour.
what is the best colour to have on them?
do you get differnt colours from differnt times of the day? if so do i only test in the morning or every pee?

I cant say hun as i only use the ones from the hospital (they are free!). My colour doesnt change at all at different times of day. I think as long as you are in ketosis (any colour/shade) then its all good.

Not too dark. When I did Lighterlife, we were told that if it was too dark we were dehydrated. So like Cheryl said as long as it's showing then that's good.

The Go Lower consultants say they are not a reliable indicator of ketosis but couldn't answer the question i asked about ketostix being used by diabetics to indicate a life threatening state (for diabetics only)! what do you think?

Ketosis and ketones are a different thing. I wont bore you with the in's and outs as its all written in the book. If you campared to a diabetic then as our sugar levels would be low we would all be in a diabetic coma.

From what I've read on Google and I'm sure Cheryl will agree, the longer you have been in ketosis, the less results you'll get from your pee sticks as the body adapts to using ketones for energy and therefore adapts to using them better and therefore less are wasted and dispatched in our urine - loads of medical terms there for your Cheryl - not!!! :8855: tell I'm not a paramedic!

It's my turn for that bloody fairy!! Give it BACK LOL!

Saying that, I've lost the two pounds I put on from not eating (a bizarre diet when the only time you gain is when you don't eat :D) so maybe you can have her for a LITTLE longer! BUT I STILL WANT HER BEFORE SUNDAY! :p
