: : Hey,
: : Purple is not good. If your body is in Ketosis you are definately unhealthy. You will feel terrible, breath will stink, kidney stones but of course will be skinnier. The fat will still be there, you are only losing water and if you go off this diet, your fat mass will be much higher.
: : Be well.

: Purple is good if you are trying to lose weight on a low carb diet. It indicates fat metabolism. Dark purple is not good, which indicates dehydration. Solution - drink more water. Let's see, I've been doing this low carb thing for over 2 years now and dropped from 220# to 180# and went from 38" to 33" waist and have kept it there. That ain't all water loss. The fat is gone. I agree that if you go back to the typical American diet which is very high in carbohydrate, then you will put the weight back on. It's the same with any diet. You have to make a lifestyle change.

Niki--you are wrong this time and Alan is correct--sorry hon--I think you need to read the book closely and you will understand why I said you are wrong. I am not fussing ya out--I am a kidney specialist at Duke Univ and it is my job to know the truth about this, Good thing I noticed--this diet has helped thousands of diabetics and heart patients--but it is a change of lifestyle diet --forever--But it works great if followed correctly. Take care--hope ya don't hate me.
