    Pretty bad breath

    Hello fellow dieters
    This is a little embarrassing, but has anyone else suffered really bad breath from the Cambridge diet? If so do you know if you are allowed mints/ chewing gum or is there anything else we are allowed? I'm brushing my teeth 3 times a day and right before I leave the house, but it doesn't make much difference.
    Any advice would be very much appreciated

    *mouth closed* yep mine reaks, I have chewing gum and find it doesn't affect my weight loss or ketosis but bit can spark to need to eat...
    Drinking water also helps the staleness that occurs so before chatting to someone I'll drink a bit before!

    Yep! Same here!! Day 4 and I started reaching for the gum yesterday! As far as I know it's normal and a sign you are in ketosis. Ketones are being excreted via breath hence the smell :-/ some people find urine smelly too as excretion will be via your wee also!!
