    Nothing at all Becky! Give it a few more days. Ketostix are not madly accurate-but for your own peace of mind-wet one with water-then ahem wet another with your number one (!)-wait 15 secs-compare side by side. I'll bet you a tenner you WILL see it darker. Doesn't have to be urber purple. Don't let me or anyone tell you what veg to eat but high fibre veg like boroccoli or cauliflower (try it as mash-delish) seemed to help me into ketosis-& it ahem helps with the ...number 2's....(!)
