Why don't I have ketones in my urine?

    I have been on LL for 8 weeks. During that time I have lost 20lbs ....far less that anyone else in my group but still a good loss and 20lbs more than if I had been on any other diet....I usually put on!!! I was wondering whether my realatively slow weight loss had anything to do with not having ketones in my urine. I have never had a positive test:cry:and I haven't cheated in all the 8 weeks. Does anyone have any idea why I don't produce ketones in my urine and why my weight loss seems to be rather slow?

    Don't diet anymore!
    Not everyone does produce them in their wee.

    What time are you doing the test? The best time is first wee of the morning and usually produces a result in even the most stubborn ketonic state.

    Do you have the bad breath?

    Are you over exercising?

    Are you drinking loads of water?

    Too many questions this late at night :)

    I have done the test at every time of day including on waking...its always negative. I don't have bad breath (I think), I don't exercise and I drink 4L water per day. I have been a model LL student!!
