    My tongue is really white and has little cracks in it. Is this what furry tongue is? If so, when does it usually go away or do you have it for the whole diet? If not, does anyone know what it is?

    Thanks in advance x :confused:

    welcome to the world of furry tongue! Or at least that is what i have and have presumed that is what everyone is going on about....I also need to know if it lasts the whole diet? I have tried brushing it/ scraping it to no avail so just am careful when i laugh not to waggle it about as i also suffer a bit with the ketosis breath......which must scare the wits outta my kids :)

    I have the ketosis breath , i cant stand it and try not to get to close to people just in case the faint with my stinky breath ! In a way it also lets me know im in ketosis so if you havent got the strips this will be the signs .

    Yes that is furry tongue, if you're prone to it, you could have it for most of the diet time, drinking extra water helps reduce it, but I also find it useful to use a medicated mouthwash rather than the regular kind.

    Hi all,

    thanks for the replies and confirming what I thought it was. It's actually quite annoying as it's really dry feeling. I will try drink more water from now on (I can just about manage what I should drink). x:)
