You can buy Ketostix at the pharmacy.

Just pee on them first thing in the morning and you'll know how much fat you're buring.

I start opti tomorrow and am on it for 2 weeks your post is not very encouraging! LOL.  I am already apprehensive about drinking it.  I'm wondering will I have opti trots or be like some folks who barf or have headaches etc.  I had forgotten about the dragon breath and bad taste that people speak about.  Oh well I'm not turning back now
