    Yes. It should ideally be a nice rosy pink but not purple or the dark fuscia colour as this could mean you're dehydrated.

    The stick will always be at its darkest first thing in the morning then will be a lighter pink later in the day as you drink the water. As long as you can see pink then you're ok.

    Yep definitely in ketosis! As Sasha said try to keep the water up as being very dark isn't so good for you.....
    Also don't get too obsessed with it, I found myself checkin about 8 times a day when I first started CD.
    It's only an indicator of fat burning..... the colour doesn't really affect how much weight you actually lose on the scales every week.
    Well done for getting into ketosis, the fat is now being burnt off by your body as you read this!!!
