    Hi All...Question for those of you who use a Ketostix to check if you are in ketosis; I was just wondering how often you check with them in say a day or week?

    I don't want to become obsessed with them. ;)

    Thanks.

    Hi Zion I'm not sure about everybody else but I found it works better in the evening/nighttime for me...I became a bit obsessed and was peeing on them morning noon and night and found there were barely any keytones in the morning and i got disheartened but as the day went on it got darker and darker (i thought it wudda been opposite!) so now I just do a stick after dinner time and it's always a nice bright pink colour :) x

    I always check first thing in the morning, and its always a pretty dark colour. i've been doing it pretty religiously every day for the past 2 months but I'm coming to the end of my tub now and dont think I'll buy anymore for a while. I'm losing weight and eating the same as always so no need really for me to be checking every day. They are a great motivator though I must admit :)

    Oh Ilove cake...don't slink off anywhere. We love everyone on this forum :D
    PS I am totally obsessed with ketostix, but to be honest, I am with most things!
    You can tell if you are in ketosis if your wee stinks :(

    I get them free and never use them. I just forget I have them and end up throwing them out.

    LMAO! No need to leave. We like having people from other places come and talk to us. It makes us feel almost human! :D
    You can get ketostix from any pharmacy.

    Great, thanks ladies :) I always find it useful to know what works for other people. I will cut it down to once a day when I work out the best time to check for me.

    Was on the road to obsession...feeling the need to check every-time I went to the loo ;)

    Awww thanks, I'm on sw and I do green days. Makes me useless in an atkins forum lol. I am jealous of all the cheese you get to enjoy but don't you miss pasta? LOL. x Would the sticks work for me?

    Yes, they would work for you.
    You are always welcome to drop in to cheer someone on or have a good read. You might even think about coming over to Atkins when you reach your goal weight for maintenance.
    I honestly don't miss pasta or potatoes or all the other carby things. My energy is so high now I just wouldn't want to slow myself down again by ea\ting loads of carbs. Great to have you around.:)
