    Hi guys - am on day 3, and was just wondering how long it usually takes to get to the pink stick stage? I tested today and i'm getting there - had trace ketones!

    Sounds daft but am excited about when it turns pink! :p

    So if you havent done any prep does it take longer? I started on Tuesday, and just did it going cold turkey!

    Yeah if you did a prep week then you have less carbs in your body, therefore get into ketosis quicker than you would if you had one last blow out. I found the side effects weren't so bad with a prep week as well.

    its not a prerequisite, but i think it is advised just to make it a comfortable journey into ketosis. Less of a headache, and less hunger pagns for me. I didnt do it first time on CD, but i fell off the wagon. Now i am wise :) xx

    Hi Hon, the thing is we are all different.
    I didnt do a prep week this time or first time and never get anything more than I mild fuzzy head! This time round I started on mon am, and I was in ketosis by tues lunch time!

    If you have any traces of pink then you are in ketosis, It doesnt have to be bright /dark pink.(this just means that you need to drink more water)
    When you get carpet breath...you know the ketosis fairy has arrived!!!

    I think mine was day 3 or 4, I'd had a proper binge before starting cd, no prep at all, so maybe that's why my journey into ketosis was hellish for me. (that was Summer last year)

    I'm currently on day 2 of my prep week, low carbs and less cals than usual. I plan on going ss in a day or two.

    I LOVE SEEING THE PINK STICK TOO, I think we aaaalllllll do :D

    what a rush!!!
    (say this like the baddie in Ace Venturer pet detective...anyone remember it??? or am I just sad?? don't answer that one.)
