weight loss/ketosis


Gold Member
Just a quick question. I had been doing 790 and when checked ketosis first thing it was just in the pink. I've checked it last few days and I'm not in ketosis. I'm now on SS but was wondering if weight loss is the same whether you are or are not in ketosis. I know it is still VLCD but I thought ketosis helped burn fat. I lost 9lbs on first week on 790 so I'm not disappointed just curious.
There are many things that affect ketosis, so I would not rely totally on the stix to indicate whether you are or not. If you drink a lot of water before a test, it could show negative. If you have not long had a pack it could show negative etc etc.

As I said in another post, I was rarely in ketosis if you believe the stix, yet I was losing weight regularly and consistently.
