: : : : 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--
--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.

: the fear of purple is absolutely wrong. It seems that you have ketosis and ketoacidosis confused with each other. By shifting metabolism to burning fat while at the same time sparing muscle, you should have ketones in the urine. this is NOT unhealthy and there had not been one scientific controlled study to prove that it is. I have had untold numbers of patinets that have had a complete change in their lives from the atkins diet and not one complication. So please do not fear monger and prevent folkes from losing more fat weight than they ever dreamed of. I have no dog in this fight except that i really enjoy seeing these folks life changed with what i think is the only healthy and even enjoyable diet in exhistence today.
