and the kallo organic bullion. *i think* i read that is marginally better somehow. i have both and a reduced salt one too. thankyou determinator, i'll do one in the morning first thing then. was curious after i ended up having a bit of an extra bar earlier, hoping it hasn't thrown me out if i was in it in the first place.

I know its easy to say ( and I still wee on one every morning !!) but you really dont need to !! For 1 - they dont always work that well , and for 2 - ketosis is not what makes you loose the weight , that is the calorie deficit , ketosis just makes it a little easier to stick to by giving you a bit of extra energy and reducing your appetite :)

I drank because I didnt know better and believed the stupid sticks and thought I was dehydrated then I realised there was noooo way on earth I could be when I was sloshing when I walked. So cut back to my usual 3 and threw the bloody things out

well it's yet to take my appetite as of yet :-( i offered it freely but i think ketosis said it smelled funny and gave it back!

lol !!!! It only takes your physical appetite , so the growling stomach and physical hunger should reduce ( although they never go totally ) some people feel the effects much more strongly , I must say I dont feel loads different when I am in or out . If you are able to cope with the diet then I really wouldnt worry about ketosis :)

I've never been convinced at that. I almost always showed very dark but would be drinking between 3 and 5 litres a day
How on earth do you drink that amount of water? I fill my glass up every time it's empty so have water all day and only seem to drink about 2.5 litres.

I used Keto stix for the first week, they never seemed to alter, always just the palest pink so gave them up. Must be in Keto as never hungry..

I don't test anymore. I never remember either. I'm not even sure when I'm in Ketosis or not anymore. I don't get hungry or have major cravings. I'm not cold, my breath doesn't smell like a dogs. Lol. I think I'd rather not know if I am in K.

Don't panic what ever colour those sticks are, just go by what your body tells you that is the best thing.
