    Yes it is normal. It is the key tones as you will be in ketosis.

    You can use a breath spray like goldspot. You can get these from any chemist.

    I found the more i drank the taste went away it is the ketones taste .Some peeps use a mouth spray like gold spot or mouth wash others use a sugar free mint (dont know if these are ok on your diet) and some brush there teeth 20 times a day lol.Have to say i found flushing them with lots of water works best for me .Stick it out the water gets easier as time goes on xxxxx

    Definitely your ketones mate, which is a good sign :clap: Brushing your teeth also helps because of that lovely 'fresh breath' feeling, and I know people who aren't on VLCDs who carry round a portable toothbrush and toothpaste because doing a quick brush up stops them eating - they feel like they don't want to 'dirty' their teeth! :eek: Yes, I know it sounds weird, but we are all a bit of a weird bunch!! :p

    Into my 6th month on CD and I still have the manky mouth and the death breath!

    I am drinking 5L of water per day too!

    I chew sugar-free gum endlessly and have done since day 1!!

    It is a good sign you are in ketosis, so enjoy it!

    I don't tend to notice a bad taste during the day, it wore off after a week or so on CD, although I do wake up with death breath and a carpet mouth lol

    I'm LLing, but I thought you couldn't have sugar-free gum when SS with CD or LL? Something to do with citirc acid affecting ketosis? Can anyone clarify? Thanks!
