    Coke zero is ok so that won't have had a negative effect. My hubby took 5 days to show ketones where as I was reading positive after two days. You don't say how long u have been doing the diet for?

    What kind of ham and chicken was it? Have you checked the ingredients for any hidden extras such as sugar/honey etc?

    If pack on the daily checks really. If you're sticking to the diet you'll be in ketosis. A slice if ham really isn't going to knock you out and I think you've just seen first hand how unreliable the ketosis are

    I always test in the morning as once you start drinking you can show neg later in the day, which is a good thing as it show as you are hydrated. Did you test at a different time of day?

    hehehe

    I am going to buy some ovulating sticks, just to POAS some more! ;) It dont stop there, I test other things as well! ;) My breast milk doesnt have ketones in, this I know for sure! Going to test saliva when I am back in ketosis too!

    I also like the look of those sticks that test 10 things, all at the same time! FML :D

    Hahahaha :D Just made me chuckle.

    I try and tell myself that I'm not going to weigh every day but I do. On Exante it actually helps as it does come off so quickly compared to other diets so I don't stress. I only test ketones if I think that I'm not in it. Otherwise I'd drive myself around the bend!
