    just a quick question a friend of mine said she was told to take a wee sample in when she gets weighed to see if she is in ketosis, i was never asked, has anyone else been told to do this??

    i was given a keto stick at my weigh in today and sent to the toilet, then the stick was checked against the colour on the chart... ++++ is deep ketosis +++average then ++ mild ...... u can also purchase these sticks yourself to use at home if you want to monitor your self... i think they cost around £3-£5 they are called keto stix

    In all the time I went, I never got asked to do a sample...or a ketostix or anything. All she did was weigh me and sold me the shakes. I bought my own ketostix, so I knew I was in ketosis.

    Good luck with weigh in.x

    i was tested every week, think tracy is right, they are supposed to do it. It shows you are sticking to the diet for one thing.

    Never had a urine test either, come to think of it they have never once mentioned the word Ketosis...
    The ladies in my pharmacy are lovely but I'm not sure how much they actually know about the diet as (thanks to the knowledgeable members on here) I've actually been telling them things they didn't know!

    I bought my own ketostix from ebay and i've still got about 40 left.

    The pharmacists don't usually test the urine, but if you were sticking to the plan 200% and not losing a ounce then they would test the urine. Thats what my pharmacist told me.

    Question: If you know that you are in ketosis and then you don't cheat.....is there any reason tto check again? Once you are in ketosis you stay in it unless you cheat is that right?
