New me......ketostix

Postby size8 » June 28th, 2006, 12:43 pm

Hi everyone,

I am new and happy to be part of this forum. I started medifast 2 weeks ago, so far, I have lost 8 pounds :D, and have 54 more to lose :( .

I use the ketostix and was wondering whether the result should be large, moderate or trace of ketones.

Hello and Welcome.

Most of the time you will not see any results on the Ketones sticks. We are in a very mild state. The weight still comes off but most dont's see results on the sticks. I don't use them.

Good Luck.

I used to use the ketosix.....the color at first got no darker than moderate. As time went on....just a trace. Over time your liver adapts and starts storing ketones (see Success in a Shaker Jar). It doesn't show up at all for me anymore. The ketosis we experience in MF is very mild, and if you drink enough water, you won't see a color change at all. They discourage using the stix on MF, because they aren't a reliable indicator, just as Lori stated. I only used them for fun, but didn't take them seriously. I know I'm IN when I'm not hungry and my mouth/breath has a sweetish metallic taste/smell. Hope this helps!

Hi Size 8,
I'm SO glad you're here! I used Ketostix in the beginning, and NEVER got a reading more than trace. I'm down over 60lbs so I'm not worried about what color the stix turns! Ask us anything you need to!
