hello everyone, im new here and im still trying to learn how to find my way around in here. My question is this, is it possible to be in ketosis (my sticks are purple,) but not loose much weight? today is day 20 and i have lost a little but not as much as i expected. maybe im just being impatient but im so anxious to get this fat off. if anyone could answer my question, i would be so thankful.

Hi there.
You know, I really wish Dr Atkins had never mentioned the dreaded ketostix. Showing positive on the darned things can mean lots of things, from not drinking enough water, eating lots of fat, drinking any alcohol, starving yourself, or indeed actually burning fat. On the other hand, many, many of our most successful losers have consistently only shown a negative response to the stix. So you can see why I think peeing on a bit of plastic is a waste of time and money.

If you go to "Tips" on the green menu bar at the top of the screen, you will find more info about Ketosis and Ketone test Strips.

Meanwhile, how about listing some of your regular menus (in your journal would be a good place), and perhaps we can figure out what's going on for you.

All the best.

Rosebud

Thanks for bumping this! I love it! I had a visit from the Woosh Fairy last week! 3 pounds down! I'm almost in the 170's. I don't turn the pee stix colors, but I do lose a lot of fat. 114 pounds gone--no thanks to a little plastic stix!

Sunny!
