    Arrgghhh... Why? Why can't my tongue not have this furry texture that I just can't seem to clear!

    No amount of water, teeth/tongue brushing will clear it!

    Any tips someone, anyone, please!!!

    Oh I hear you, I feel like someone has laid a carpet on my tongue! Chewing gum seems to help a little, but only for a short time.

    Urgghh I know what you mean - for me it was/is the absolute worse part of the diet, although the good news is it is a sign of ketosis. I find regular tongue brushing, lots of water and I must confess i do use Wrigleys extra chewing gum if I'm going to be in confined spaces as I am paranoid about bad breath! I know its not allowed but its my only slight tweaking of the rules and if I didn't I would be housebound for the duration!! (yes I really am that paranoid about bad breath!!)
    The bad news is when I did CD SS for 5 mths it never really went away - just sort of varied in severity. Sorry. Hopefully it wont be the same for you, and you do sort of get used to it I suppose.
    Btw I found it was always worse straight after a shake but I have no idea why??!
