    MMm ketosis! Am an old Atkinsers so I know all about ketosis! Yes the funny taste could be it, also nausea.
    Are you doing Red Days? You need to be really low in your carb intake to get into ketosis...

    If youre eating pasta potatoes etc it wont be ketosis. You carb levels need to be incredibly low for ketosis, looks like its something else. Ketosis isnt a sweet taste, its more metallic, its horrible.

    Also eating anything like yoghurt, snacks, drinking diet coke etc would all stop you getting into ketosis.

    Youd need to be eating pretty much pure protein for days and days at a time to get into ketosis, it can take up to a week of very low carbing to get into ketosis, sadly it doesnt happen overnight.

    Really don't think it can be ketosis as even on a red day, carb intake would be too high.
    Having said that, I don't have any suggestions as to what it could be!!!!

    You haven't been eating pinenuts have you? Some people (not everybody) experience a horrible taste in the mouth which lasts up to a fortnight, and it recurs every time they eat or drink. It's well documented now on the internet, and Which Magazine were interested. It's called 'pinemouth syndrome'. I had it a few months ago and will never eat pinenuts again - though previously I had no problem. Though as far as I can remember the taste was rather more metallic than sweet.... hope you can suss it out! :)

    Have you been drinking lots of fizzy diet drinks? I find Vimto light always leaves a sweet taste in the mouth that takes forever to disappear. Or maybe the Mullerlights?

    I've had something similar recently but it is a bitter taste at the back of my mouth. Very strange but no idea what it is!

    Which sweetener have you been using - if it's aspartame based then its probably that. Try switching to a sucrulose based one like splenda - it's far nicer!
