The mysterious ketosis

#1
Can anyone tell me why after 7 days I'm still not in ketosis please? Have stuck to TS and am still really hungry most of the time.... Bought ketostix which are barely registering any ketosis. Are some people going to be more resistant than others? It just makes it so difficult to stick to especially when you read so many posts with great weight losses who seem to barely notice any hunger. I lost 4 pound this week (week one) :(

Comments welcome....

If the ketostix are registering even a light pink, this usually means you ARE in ketosis! :)

Not everyone gets the 'no hunger' benefit from it, & it's to be expected as you are on an extremely low calorie diet. You're body is naturally going to be hungry - but that doesn't mean you're not burning fat!

4lb is still a loss (I lost 3), it will all add up in time if you stick to it. There is no way you can't lose weight if you stay on this diet. Make sure you're drinking plenty of water & keep positive. :) x

My suggestion - stop looking for a pink stick! Look at what size pink dress or jeans or whatever will be yours when this diet works (and it will!). The stixs are a distraction, ketosis is inevitable. Hunger subsides eventually except when the appetite is stimulated by the sight or smell of food (best avoided if at all possible).
I am more and more convinced that all this is the head. We are built to withstand hunger but we have not had much practice at it. It gets easier for sure.
You control your thoughts so stop thinking about pink sticks and think about the fun your life will be when the weight has gone. That and drinking water always work for me. Good luck

I remember when i did lighter life that any shade of pink is ketosis. If its a dark colour of pink or purple it shows your just dehydrated xx
