    Morning people...I was just wondering what kind of signs you get that you are in ketosis? I dont have the sticks to wee on, but I have got a very strange sweet taste in my mouth and tmi but my wee smells like sugarpuffs! could this be a sign that I'm in ketosis? Also I could not get to sleep last night and am normally a really good sleeper and I am very restless today, like i have over dosed on caffeine!! I haven't touched a drop:eek:

    I'm sure it's just your body struggling to manage the changes, things will settle down Kerry.

    oops, I missed that kerry, we'd moved over the page. I had bad BO, but maybe that's 'cos I'm a bloke, I can't say on the sleep either, it's not something that has ever troubled me, much to Colleen's disgust. :D
