Hi larel,
Don ' t get too hung up on the ketostix results. Testing once a day in the morning should be fine.
If you ' re sticking to the acceptable foods list in the correct amounts, you ' re doing great. Congratulations!
Any color change means you ' re in ketosis. If you drank a lot of water, your urine could be diluted so that the stix don ' t detect the ketones. There are other reasons the stix change color sometimes and not at others. ( For example, if you touched the little square or got it damp, or if you held it too long in your urine stream and washed off the detection chemicals. )
