    Hello everyone! I just checked my ketones a little while ago after I returned from my 3.5 mile walk to discover my ketosis level is back down to pink, or "small" as it calls it on the chart. I admit I haven't checked for well over a week, maybe two, so I've no clue if the ketones were higher within the last two weeks or not. The time I cheated was over three weeks ago and I felt the results as well as witnessed them on my test strip. And I figured out what it was I consumed to put me there and appropriatley got back on track and my energy levels went up again a couple of days later. In the last few days I've kept pretty good track of my carb intake and it remains around 19-20 per day. I still have plenty of energy, though. That's what puzzles me.........I still have lots of energy all day long, but the ketone density is down?? I was really excited a few weeks ago during induction to see the test strip at almost the darkest purple. Can anyone explain this phenomenon to me? I admit I really need to educate myself more on the Atkins site, also.

    The color of the strip does not matter, as long as there are some ketones present. A darker color does NOT mean that you are burning more fat than a lighter color. If you drink a lot of water your urine will be diluted and the strip will be more pink, not purple.
    I have only once had a purple color and it was first thing in the AM. Mine are usually small or medium and I have lost 20lbs in about 6 weeks.

    Thank you, so much spydermary!! That makes me feel a lot better....... I am drinking much more water these days, and that's another goal I've achieved! Maybe I should try testing first thing in the morning and see if I have similar results as you have.
    Adorable baby you have in the photo!
