Just used the Ketostix for the 1st time. I guess that would be great if I knew which way is the way I need to be! I matched "Moderate" perfectly. So do I want to go lighter (towards trace) or darker (towards large)???

My question to you is....does anyone know, can I use this diet during the days I am having the surg? I hate to be on it then off and back on again. What are your thoughts? I am 5'1" tall and weigh 205#.
I don't see any reason why you could not follow the diet during your surgery days. You will need to discuss everything with your doctor and coach and maybe take some IP packets to the hospital with you so you can have the correct food to eat. We do have a few nurses on the forum and maybe they will chime in and make some recommendations for you.

Good luck with your knee surgeries and good luck with your weight loss. Your knees will definitely recover better with less weight to carry.

Welcome to the forum! This is a great group of women and a few guys to help you along your journey.

Kelsey, In my opinion trace to moderate is sufficient. I think whatever you are doing is working great!

Darker - my Husband can do it so easily. I never get past trace. But I'm still losing on IP.

Hey Kelsey! Moderate is great. You definetely don't want to try to go lower. I have been all over the board with trace, small and then large, but I figure it all means I am in Ketosis. Thanks for the kind words to me

No knee replacements, but I've had 3 knee surgery's on the left and 1 on the right. Always good idea to be your healthy best before surgery. I have been in the hospital with my Husband who had major surgery 4/5. We were supposed to leave today, but his sodium was too low and they said he could have a seizure. Also, his potassium and magnesium got low and they had to give them to him thru his IV. Since IP lowers your potassium, sodium and constipates you, all three minerals are critical. Check with your Doctor!!!!

I always lose weight when I get operated on cause I don't feel like eating.

Whether, dark or light, I've heard you are in ketosis. If it is on the light side, it just means that you are well hydrated and if you are on the dark side, you are not hydrated enough. That's how I have always understood it.
