    I have only been on CD for two days, however I have this horrible taste in my mouth, and I feel I need to clean my teeth all the time, Does this go after a while?

    I'm afraid not - this is a good sign as it means you are in ketosis!! You do get used to it, but most people have it the whole time they are losing weight. If you drink lots of water, it seems to make it a bit better. Also mouth sprays or listerine strips can help!!

    I use Corsodyl which is a really strong mouthwash. My hubby tells me by breath no longer smells like the dogs bottom. Nice!!

    Hi Pickle,

    I am sure a dentist told me one time not to use Corsodyl (before diet) because it stains your teeth. It should only be used for a short time for gum infections e.c.t.

    I cant be 100% sure but for some reason it springs to mind (my memory is failing lol).

    Day two was the worst day for my breath, but some how it feels a little better, it maybe that i have been drinking 4 L of water. Breath still stinks though lol cause the kids keep running away and hold their breath when they kiss me.

    Rose - i am on day 6 today and it does feel a little better.

    Yes this all sounds familiar! i am on day 20 of the diet, my fella thought i hadn't brushed my teeth for 3 days, my breath was that bad! I brush mine 3x a day at the moment! Although my breath isn't as bad now as when i first started!
    I suppose in a battle to be thin, we all have to grin and bear it (it's a small price to pay!)

    It does mention staining on the bottle but says that it will go with brushing. I use it regulary too. Although I do sometimes alternate it with that 2 coloured one thats supposed to show the germs in the sink.
    No ones ever commented on my breath and my hubby would if it smelt. But ive read before that drinking loads of water really helps.

    My husband had to use Corsydl for a longer period of time because of chronic mouth ulsers and he did find it coloured his teeth, he now just uses the spray. Ive been using Listerine mouth wash and do "brush" my tonuge as well so far had not complaints and Im defo in Ketosis
