You can use them any time of day. You ' ll get a lighter reading when you ' re hydrated ( purple is an indication of dehydration, btw ). It doesn ' t matter when you test... so long as there ' s a color change you have ketones in your urine. Lighter readings can be an indication that you ' re properly hydrated and / or BURNING the ketones up for fuel ( what we WANT ) before they can reach your urine. So a light color can be a GOOD thing, not a bad thing. Any ketones ( by - product of fat metabolization ) not used for fuel will " spill over " into your urine.
Read this from the FAQ forum: http: / / lowcarbsite. com / forum / viewtopic. php? t=1601
This is a " must read " as far as I ' m concerned, if you ' re using those strips.
