If you used ketostix to determine I you're in Ketosis, that is an unreliable measure. Phase 2 would not take you out of Ketosis as it doesn't add additional carbs.
After we've been low carbing for a while, our bodies get really efficient at BURNING the ketones, rather than discarding them in the urine. There is an IP video on this subject.
