    I'm in my second week of CD and every drink that I seem to have tastes funny, has anyone else experienced this?

    I'm having a banana shake this morning and it tastes really different (like washing up liquid or something). It was the same yesterday when I had the spicy tomato soup.

    Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks x

    Thanks Kes, I do have furry tongue so not sure if it is something to do with this. It's just so funny tasting that I feel like going and getting some actual food which I really do not want to do. x

    Hi Rose,

    Yeah my packs are all in date. Maybe it is something to do with ketosis. Well I'm off to go make my soup for lunch and I shall let you know.

    P.S. I feel a cold coming on and my throat is really like tickly at the back and I'm now wondering whether this could be the effect of the not so good tasting shakes/soups.

    The chocolate shake tasted a little 'fishy' in the second week. So much so that I hated it! It tastes fine now and I really like it.

    Thanks everyone for the advice.

    Megan - it is a bit like chemical tasting of some sort.

    I have now been using a blender and it doesn't taste so bad (so I am now wondering, have I been mixing it properly). Hopefully it is just because I've got a cold coming on and it won't be like that as I have been so tempted to just grab something and eat it, lol.

    Thanks again everyone for the advice and different things that it actually could be xx

    yeah i had this about my 3rd week... products i loved before just tasted odd, even water didnt taste good but am sure is just ketosis and your taste buds acting up as they havent had the usual variety of flavours!! i just ignored it and forced the products down anyway and it got better soon X
