    So I'm on day 2 of solesource and the BF has just said to me 'poooh your breath is really stinkin'

    What on earth do you do to mask the death breath? Are we allowed sugar free gum?

    Hasty advice appreciated!

    you are not suppose to chew any type of gum, although i do but only for about a minute, did he complain about your breath not long after having a shake, i find that i have got to drink at least a pint of water after or else my breath stinks unfortunatley it is a side effect of the diet usually it indicates that you are in Ketosis (fat burning mode) which is good

    No haven't had a shake for a while but did have a coffee so maybe its a ketosis-coffee combo that he found so offensive! Might have to give peppermint tea a go?

    You can use Gold spot breath freshener spray and I have been know to chew sugar free gum for a minute just to freshen my mouth but you do risk it making you feel hungry if you chew for longer, if your at home you can also brush your teeth a few extra times a day :)

    I'm not looking forward to the death breath! However, I have decided to work it to my advantage... I shall either have the cleanest teeth in Wales, or no fear of the slightly odd postman wanting to hang around and chat :-D

    you can have those dissolvable breath strips. i think listerine makes them? just be careful you don't have gazillions of them. someone on here ate a whole pack and burnt her tongue i think...

    but they are great for fresh breath :)

    Oh thanks, the dissolvable strips sound more workable. Will have to look out for them.

    Yeah I know the bad breathe is a real drawback I just use breath freshener and brush my teeth a lot & keep swilling my mouth out with Listerine Total. So it has helped me in the fact I have a much better dental heath routine now, so some good has come from it but I found that the first couple of weeks were definitely the worst.

    Hi everyone !
    You can order the Listerine strips at www.shop-com.co.uk and at the moment they're priced at £1.17 per 72.
    Hope this helps !
