Ketosis can affect different people in different ways. If you're in the big K and aren't suffering the side effects think yourself lucky ;) TBH I never got that cold on LT the first time around either

when ketosis hit me my breath was really nasty - as my kind hubby told me! I think you can keep the bad breath away with the water drinking - which is what i have done. My ketosis hit late at night...which is why the breath reared its ugly head!

If you are drinking enough water, you would hardly notice it and it is a transitory effect as the body adapts...

I guess like someone said everyone is different, I tick the cold and bad breath boxes so wrapping up and eating toothpaste!:)

Hi, I am freezing at the mo, have been since I started LT back in April, but haven't had any comments about bad breath. I do brush my teeth as often as I can and drink plenty so maybe that helps. I did buy mouthwash but only used it the once - coz I realised I'd forgotten to brush my teeth again before going out in the evening (I hasten to add, I ALWAYS brush my teeth am and pm but also usually do it before going out again! Don't want you all to think I am smellyfairy!!!)

My feet were cold in bed this afternoon (nights tonight) but apart from that, I have been warm. I guess I am just lucky.

The weather doesn't help but I was still taking a hot water bottle to bed in July!!!!! Now I have 2 of them and am still cold!!!! I have to take my youngest to a sports tournament tomorrow and will end up like last week where I wore tights, 2 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of joggers, 3 t-shirts, a fleece, mac, coat, hat, scarf and gloves and I was STILL cold!!!! I wish I could afford a holiday somewhere warm!!!!

Kered you are very lucky if you aren't feeling the cold. I envy you that!!! When is your first WI?

My feet were freezing in bed this afternoon, but I think thats because I was out this morning and wore thin shoes. Once I was out of bed and showered for work, I was warm as toast again. I am usually a warm person anyway, so probably that helps.

My first WI is on Tuesday, I cant wait. Very excited as the scales are already showing a loss.

You are doing marvellous, not long to go to goal for you now. Are you still on 3 shakes a day, or are you down to 2 shakes and a meal?

Good luck for Tuesday.

I'm back on 3 shakes at the mo as I had some left over and my chemist didn't want me back on LT! I plan to go back to her on Monday and plead for another fortnights supply then hopefully I will be back to target and refeeding again! If she won't let me then I'm unsure what to do. I may try a local CD counsellor or try and find another chemist in the area that does it.

Hope your nightshift goes well, are you a nurse? Sorry, I'm very nosy!!! I must get to my bed if I am going to get youngest to that tournament - not sure how long it will take to get there as it is about 30 miles away and I've never been there before.

Good luck for the tournament and hopefully you can keep nice and warm. I think its going to be milder tomorrow.

Not nursing, I work in traffic.

Good luck for Monday, hopefully the pharmacist will give you enough to get you to target.

Goodnight, sleep well.

Hi Kered,

No, I don't get bad breath either, I think the water intake is taking care of that. I'm also using listerine strips evey few hours as I'm used to chewing gum to keep my breath fresh through the day. I'm very cold, but can't tell if that's because of ketosis. I'm ALWAYS cold in winter, lol ;-)

Hi Kered :)

This time I've had more trouble from very cold feet and cramp in my calves but it did ease after about 24 hours, thank goodness!!..lol

I drink between 3 & 4 litres of water a day plus tea/coffee and just keep loads of Gold spot mouth sprays everywhere. Apart from that, not too bad. Cold, but then it is cold anyway:eek::D

i stink like you wouldn't believe and am very self conscious about not talking to people directly now. It's the worst thing about being on LT but it won't be here forever once we're all slinky

Thanks everyone for their replies. I have had a little bit of bad breath today, but not too bad.
It is worth having bad breath to have a slinky figure though - good one.
