    I've had a look at my tongue today and its furry and yellow! Not pleasant! Is this anything to worry about? Or just a sign of ketosis? I'm on day 5 so hopefully in ketosis now? Do you think this causing the yellow fur? I'm worried!

    Thanks

    Its just the ketosis/lack of debridement that you would get during normal eating.

    Invest in a tongue scraper and in the meantime get in there with the toothbrush (remember and get right to the back because thats where the really smelly stuff hides.)

    Thanks Lexie,

    I'm quite excited about the first sign of ketosis (even if it is a little gross!). Does anyone know whether my yellow tongue will be with me the whole time I'm doing SS? Or will it go?

    Thanks

    I've had a white furry one for pretty much the whole time (9 weeks or so)

    Do you drink a lot of coffee/tea or smoke?. They all discolour the tongue. Try and drink more water which will certainly help. :)
