    unreal83 Want to be a yummy mummy!

    I woke up today with the most rancid taste in my mouth and I bet my breath does not smell too great either!!!:sign0137:

    I have a mouth spray which i keep spraying but when that wears off the taste creeps back! Its like something has died in my gut!

    I am so worried about talking too closely to people!!

    Yes, for me this is definately the biggest down-side of doing the CD. I suffer really badly with bad breath (so my husband keeps telling me - at least he's honest!), and as my job is a medical rep, visiting surgeons and theatre nurses all day, it's not good! I keep a bottle of mouth wash in the car in the desperate hope that it might help, but I do get really paranoid about it.
    :cry:

    Can anyone give the reason for this? I mean - I know its ketones coming out, but why do they smell so bad?

    Here comes the science bit!

    Ketones (in particular, acetone, which is a ketone - I remember this from my chemistry classes), are the chemicals used in nail-varnish remover. Ketotic breath actually smells like nail varnish remover! Yuk, no wonder people are keeping their distance!

    You can chew gum but they reccomend that you do it for short periods as chewing could set off your cravings.
