    You will know as you will have a bad, iron-y like taste in your mouth, will suffer from bad breath and you wee will smell.

    I can't stand the breath thing! I have to avoid kissing my bf lol its so embarrassing and even though I keep brushing my teeth it just comes back. Still it will definitely be worth it for a lifetime of being slim and being able to eat what I want!

    I find I'm not hungry at all when in ketosis. Agree with the metallic taste thingy but haven't experienced the bad breath.

    Unless no-one has had the courage to tell me I have it...

    The Ketosis is a funny thing. Years ago I did a fasting for therapeutic reasons which got me into ketosis pretty fast. I only did it for a week ( of only water, can you believe it? ) but I remember so well the metallic taste and the horrible breath!

    With Dukan, for some bizarre reason I did not feel any of those things, I was normally hungry ( not like I was during my fasting in which My hunger went away after day 3 completely )

    Did I go into ketosis during Dukan? I don't know, I don't think so, but it might have been very mild in my case.

    I get the odd taste in my mouth and the not feeling hungry at all, apart from a little niggle if i leave it too long between meals, and as far as i am aware no bad breath... :S
