    Im perplexed!..
    Im on SS+.. well I eat some days and others not...but today will be my 6th weigh in and I dont think I`ve lost more than a pound..

    I have had the flu this week and been sucking on Sugar Free Strepsils..Ive drunk 3ltrs of water a day...not cheated... only thing I can think of is that I was chewing sugar free gum this week but surely that couldnt of thrown me out of ketosis...??

    Ive done 3 Ketostix this week.. 2 were negative and only one was pink?..
    AM confused.... any ideas?....

    Have you been taking any kind of meds? Perhaps that's the reason?

    i thought strepsils contained citric acid? if they do then they could well have knocked you out of ketosis.
    last time i was on cd my reflux was bad so took antacids and didnt realise they had citric acid in them for a few days, result was a slight gain at the weigh in, so now i always check the back of the pack on any meds i take
