    How long does it take and does this mean that I will not have lost any weight yet?

    Ketosis usually takes 3-4 days to show, but I have hardly ever shown as being in ketosis and I have lost weight!

    are you testing for ketosis first thing in the morning before drinking water or having a pack (which will dilute the reading).

    You will see the result on Monday, don't you worry.

    I never check for ketosis as I know that if I follow the diet 100% I will be in ketosis ( and knowing me if I did eat and was still in ketosis I'd think I would get away with eating!) Just stick to it and you will be in ketosis.
    Good luck.

    as far as I'm aware, some people can't use the test sticks, as there are two types of ketones, and the sticks only find one. are you:-

    colder than usual? (I always have a cold nose!!)
    not hungry?

    those are my main symptoms, but even if you're not, like everyone has said you'll definately lose weight, I think the main use for ketosis is to help stop hunger

    This is true however it is understandable when someone is first starting out on the diet to have the visual reassurance that they have got into ketosis. It is a bit of a milestone so I get where you are coming from with the question Tina. Good luck

    And to burn fat - that's a pretty nice side effect of ketosis too:D

    I was still not in ketosis on day 5 and I lost 11lbs first week so dont think you wont lose, it depends on how much water you have as well.
