    I keep checking with my flatmate but she promises i haven't got atkins breath yet, does that mean i'm not doing it right or do you have to have been low carbing for a long time before you get it?

    i knew someone with really bad atkins breath i don't want to get it. also can you tell if you've got it? this person didn't seem to know he had it & would breath his monster breath on everyone :yuk:lol

    thanx

    Hi Sarah,

    I must admit I had CD breath really really bad but don't seem to have had bad breath with Atkins just the metallic taste in my mouth.
    I use either sugar free gum or a squirt of goldspot to keep my breath fresh.

    Now I know I can have sugar free gum I've been using that, but I have some breath freshener spray too from tesco mainly for the metallic taste. I think mine became really bad about half way through week 2.

    I know I had it, I think it was masked a bit as I was a heavy smoker, but yes I used the SF Gum and a mouth wash during the day.

    Now the stinky fluorescent pee was another matter :D
