One of the IP videos explains why the ketostix are so unreliable.
Our bodies get better at processing Ketones and there is less left over to flush in the urine.
I consider them useless.

The other thing is ketosis is like pregnancy. It is either positive or negative.

If I'm following the protocol, there are no carb/cal/fat grams to count and there are no ketones to monitor. I just eat what the sheet tells me to to do.
