    I have been following SW religiously for almost three weeks now, and have been really happy at the losses I have achieved so far. For the last two and a half weeks though I have felt nausea and a metallic type taste in my mouth. I am 100% sure I am not pregnant. It may well be a horrid coincidence, a bug of some sort. But I just wanted to see if anybody else has encountered the same? If so, how long does it last? Thanks

    can I ask what plan you follow ? It sounds similar to ketosis which is a state that happens when you dont consume carbohydrate ( such as on atkins diet of total food replacement diets ) , it is possible to become slightly ketotic iff you follow red days religiously ?? just an idea , probably totally off the mark !!!

    I follow extra easy, and have loads of carbohydrates so don't think it can be that. Thanks for posting though :) x

    I haven't changed my meds so I don't think so...
    I'm starting to wonder whether it is the huge amount of diet drinks I am consuming, maybe a reaction to sweeteners. Think I'll stick to water/tea for a while.

    Thanks for your help everyone :)

    I have been getting that too, and think you might be right about the sweeteners? I eat alot of light yoghurts which contain sweetener, I have it in my hot drinks, Its in diet drinks.. and I only seem to get it when I've been consuming those things.

    My initial thought was Pregnant! - then I read that you're 100% sure. Maybe you should do a test to make that 101%????

    I have already done three tests! That's how I think I know I am not!

    I have just put two and two together and realised my brand of thyroxine has changed, as my pharmacist didn't have my regular brand. Perhaps it is a reaction to that! Thanks for your responses :)

    It is most likely the sweeteners, they can leave a horrid aftertaste in your mouth. I tend to avoid things with sweeteners in where possible and since I have done, I can't stand artificially flavoured things anymore, they make me feel sick.
