Help with understanding Ketosis levels
I have done well so far and am starting my 5th week. Down nearly 20 pounds at this point. Over the last 5 days or so, my test strip readings have been getting lighter. I was always on the moderate for the first 3+ weeks (40) but then it started getting lighter - 1.5 / 15 at first and today I was on the "trace" level 0.5 / 5. I was on pink (15) the morning of my last appointment, but the staff member said I was still in ketosis. The confusing part is, during my initial visit, I was told I should be in the moderate / large area (40-80). Any thoughts?
