    I am in my second day and I was just wondering whether I am in ketosis as I have a furry tongue and a bad taste in my mouth. I thought it takes about 3-4 days. Will this taste last or will it pass? :confused::confused:

    Hi :)

    In my own experience it is totally possible to be in ketosis by day 2, especially if you reduced carbs on the lead up to starting a VLCD. The furry tongue and bad taste are 2 signs that you may be in ketosis and for some people it does stay around and for others it doesn't.

    Keep going as you are doing very well :D

    Thank you.

    I'm hoping this is a good sign that the weight is starting to fall off.

    hi

    hi cuddly

    yes... I could say you are well on your way! Day 2 i started to go into ketosis.. day 3 i was in it .. and felt normal.. day 4 today and i am not hungry at all.. feel full so I say im fully in it.. (as well as the DH, said my breath reeks - and that was straight after brushing them furiously!)

    I'd say it sticks around. But we're all different, so hopefully you will not notice it too much - i use mouthwash regularly, not just after brushing. also pay close attention to brushing your tongue when you do your teeth, and never forget flossing of course.

    It is possible to go into ketosis as soon as day 2, I find after 24 hours of no carbs im on the k-train! The weight will fall off and you'll be made up after your first weigh in. Hmmm the taste you will find more prominent to start with, but after a while you get used to it, keeping up the water helps along with regular brushing! Good luck for week 1! x

    Yep, I still have the furry tongue feeling and feeling like there is something in my mouth to chew. It's very weird. I'm reliably informed my breath is rank. Have mouthwash everywhere, work, kitchen, bedroom, car, handbag. I really hate the bad breath bit.
