    hello!

    I have (another) question - may seem silly about ketosis and ketostix.

    There are several shades that the test sticks can turn after you've 'dipped' them. According to the tub I am testing positive but only the lowest amounts today, where as 2 days I tested and I was right at the other end of the positive scale.

    are you in ketosis as long as there is a positive result no matter what the strength?

    thank you !!!

    Lizzie :)

    Yes!!! You are in ketosis! Well done!
    Very dark shades can mean you are dehydrated. I's best to be in the first couple of shades

    Ahh that explains it.. I got the dark shade on day 3 after 3 hours of sulking, not drinking, and just generally being moody lol - must have been dehydration
