    i started with LL and pretty sure you can have mouth wash and gold spot mouth spray. I used the mouth spray and the was and it didn't do me ny harm so you should be fine.

    chewing gum?

    The Cambridge Diet webpage says sugar free gum shouldn't really be chewed on S/S but can be for 2-3mins. It doesn't mention it throws you out of ketosis but that it may make you feel hungry so I guess if you can cope with the hunger pangs than it is ok to chew!

    I have been having a half piece of gum now and again and also the mint 'sheets' and still managing to loose although I am not sure what the official word is and if/what is officially recommended....

    Gold spot mouth spray is on special offer in superdrug at the mo for £1.32

    Its all ive used during the day and its fab, spray once over the tongue and once under the tongue, doest knock you out of ketosis and keeps smelling lovely for a while.

    Chewing gum may kick off cravings btw, strips can be used but they are hard to get hold of now.

    Hope this helps x

    Bad breath is killing me at the moment. I hate it in a morning when i go to school and other mums talk to me - i feel really self conscious and end up hardly speaking!!
    Think i'm going to superdrug tomorrow!!! ;)

    Hiya - I had this really bad when I first started (6weeks in now) - and my tongue was an awful colour and was afraid in case people noticed it when I was speaking :eek: also had (and sometimes still get) a horrible metally taste in my mouth..

    I have found that it has got tongue is now pink again !! and I also brush my tongue every day so that might be helping :confused: you can also get tongue scrapers - which I also bought but using it made me gag !

    I've used the sugar free strips very occasionally and they don't seem to have hindered my losses.....hope you get sorted soon !

    Gold spot is spot on.
    Toothpaste is a brill alternative.
    Sugar-free gum - beware the production of saliva as it increases cravings!!!
    Minty strips - I thought these were forbidden on LL and CD as they contained too many carbs??? They could knock some people out of ketosis so take care!

    Our LLC told us last week that the only strips we could have were the listerene strips.
    Hope that helps a bit - I'm brushing several times a day and trying not to gag when I clean my tongue :eek:

    I went to superdrug on saturday to look for that goldspot stuff but couldn't find any. What sort of things do they keep it ith and what does it look like so I have some idea?

    I thought it would be where the toohpaste would be but there was nothing like that there
