Why am I not in Ketosis?

#2
May be you are and the ketostix aren't showing it because you are testing your urine at the wrong time of day?

May be the ketostix are out of date?

If you are following the diet 100% then you will be in ketosis and you'll lose weight. What do the scales say?

Ketostix just bought from boots, so not out of date, and have been following 100%, maybe try again in the morning.

Best time to test is in the morning before you have a shake or drink any water.

If you test shortly after a shake or after drinking a lot of water you can get a negative result.

Bet its bright pink tomorrow.

There was someone on here (I forget who..) always tested negative on the ketostix, but obviously was in ketosis as the weight came off just the same.

It can also be effected (I think) if you just downed a lot of water at once as it dilutes it more)

Try not to worry, if you stuck to the diet you WILL be losing weight, and lots of it too!

May sound silly but I never ever tested for Ketosis, just thought to myself that if I do the diet then the weight will come off no matter what colour any stick is!!!

Dont get too hung up about stuff like that, this diet works hun x

I never showed on the stix. Dabbed and splashed, soaked and dipped, morn and eve, before eating after eating. Tried 3 boxes..and didn't once show the slightest hint of pink.

So..gave up testing.

I knew I must be in ketosis. I would imagine this diet is pretty impossible if you're not. You would be so constantly in pain with hunger I would imagine.

good god yeah! i cant imagine CD without ketosis. dont want to even try! do u have the symptoms? freezing cold and the ability to kill people with a heavy breath in their direction.

my hubby used to always fart in bed and try to shove my head under the duvet (who says romance is dead??) but now i jump on him with morning keto breath and make sure he gets the full effect. hehe! much worse that anything he can do to me!

Congrats!

FWIW - The only symptom of ketosis I have is no hunger. I did have lethargy at the beginning.

Not everyone has the same indicators of ketosis, however the one consensus is - no hunger -
