    Hi Blondie,
    YES i have! My teeth have felt weird, kinda sore but it's because I've noticed I'm kinda grinding them which I never did before!!? And my gums don't look the best?
    I think it's just something to do with lack of chewig.
    What's happening with you?

    I've noticed when brushing my teeth they bleed. I must say my tongue looks pretty healthy though. Could it be a side affect of the diet?

    I've not had a problem with my gums. I go to the dentist regularly and just make sure I brush my teeth and tongue well before I go so I don't knock the poor guy out with my lovely ketosis breath. He didn't mention anything about my gums. If this diet provides all the nutrients your body needs I can't understand why your gums would start to bleed when doing the diet. It does sound like a few people have had the same problem though!! Very odd!! Maybe its a coincidence (have I spelt that right!!). Hope all goes well at the dentist.:D

    Hi guys your gums will bleed when you have left plaque on your teeth and gums when brushing. Chewing helps us to produce saliva which will help to wash away some plaque and so will chewing. However if not chewing!! Less plaque removal! Our gums bleed as a reaction to plaque. Get brushing guys and maybe chewing gum? xx

    I still have chewing gum, not done me any harm! I can go with out food but deffo not chewing gum! I would stop it if I was not in ketosis but it has not affected that so far - fingers crossed!

    Thanks bea, yeah thats what I figure. I dont constantly chew gum, but prob have about 3/4 pieces a day, most days. The bad breath makes me feel sick and I cant impose it on others! If it came to a point when I was not losing, then I would have to consider stopping the gum, but fingers crossed it will not come to that - weigh in tomorrow....
