    Hey everyone

    Started today and doing quite well I think, very hungry though which is weird. Right I mainly have three questions for everyone,

    1. I have a weird acid like taste in my mouth is this normal? Does anyone know what it is?

    2. I quite like tea with sweetner (the tablet formed ones, canderell i think) Does anyone know how many of these sweetner tablets i would be aloud daily. I dont want to go overboard ive just found 2 tablets a tea is quite nice lol

    3. Where do i find the listerine mint strips that you put on your mouth? Worried im going to get bad breath and everyone will know but me lol

    Hope everyone is doing ace today :)

    Thanks for any reply's

    Hiya - and WELCOME :D

    well done on getting started !!

    try hermesetas for tea.......should be OK......

    most chemists stock listerine strips....but try GoldSpot spray if you can't get them......

    the weird acid taste could be ketosis kickin in....sometimes tastes bit 'metallicky'....with furry white tongue (gross !)...stick with it - and let the fat burning begin :D

    keep us posted !

    hi nessy, I do chew sugarfree chewing gum a couple of times a day but only for a wee while as it can make your feel hungry. That taste in your mouth may well be ketosis already especially if you cut down on the carbs and stuff before you started?
    Best of luck and well done for getting through today :)

    hiya nessy,
    canderel is fine, in fact, any tablet form sweetener is absolutely fine and u can have as many as u need to sweeten ur drinks. some ppl even add them to their shakes to make them sweeter.
    If u reduced ur carb intake prior to starting CD there is a strong chance the metallic taste could well be the beginnings of ketosis. well done hun.
    the very best of luck to ur first week. it can be tough work in the first week but it will all be worth it on ur first weigh in :)
    keep us posted hun.

    the metallic taste may be the minerals in the packs. Some people notice it more than others. Otherwise, it may be the beginnings of ketosis (depends on your carb consumption leading up to today).

    Well done on getting through the first day.
