Default Using Ketostix

Hi Everyone!

I have been following 100%..I even drink my coffee black and stopped chewing the spry gum and cut out onions.

My ketostix are still showing me in the trace/low range.
When I did atkins years ago, I would always test dark purple.
Does anyone know why I am reading so low?

Im obsessed, testing 3-4 times a day!!!

The color makes no difference. Either you are or aren't in ketosis. Trace is exactly the same as the large amounts.

Follow the sheet 100% and save your money. No need to test. Trace is good anyways, means you are well hydrated and your body is using ketones for energy so you are excreting trace amounts.

As someone else has said - it's like being pregnant, you are or you aren't. The color on the strips doesn't matter at all. They are also notorious for being faulty. When I first started, I had 2 different kinds of ketostix - they would read differently every single time. Go ahead and use up your stix if you must, then don't waste your money - follow the program, and it will work!!
