    Can anyone tell me how long it takes from the moment you eat something that has carbs in to showing on a ketosis stick?

    Few hours maybe. But why do you want to know?

    Whether you're in ketosis or not has no effect on the diet working well. It helps reduce feelings of hunger (though the jury's out on why).

    There's a chance that if you eat a significant amount of carbs in one go, say more than 100g worth, you'll refill your glycogen stores and therefore retain water until they're emptied again. So a splurge on carbs might lead to several pounds increase on the scales - but this would only be a temporary 2-3 day effect - until your body's had a chance to burn off your glycogen stores again.

    Calories, on the other hand, do matter...

    Ah... just read your other post about the chicken dinner. :)

    So long as you didn't eat too many potatoes, you'll probably be okay. By the sound of things you didn't eat too much more than you might on an 810 meal so don't fret too much. Next time though, don't eat the spuds!
