    Hi there
    I am starting LL in 10 days.
    I have heard that bad breath can be a side effect and am worried about this.
    Can any type of mouth wash be used?
    What about breath sprays - someone said some contain citric acid and can kick you out of ketosis - is this right? If so what kind is ok to use?
    thanks

    Gold spot is allowed on CD, so I think is ok for LL. Also the breath strips (like mini sheets of flavoured plastic :giggle: ) are ok as well.

    Mouthwash is fine. You do get bad breath initially but I found that if I made sure I had my daily intake of water it wasn't nearly as bad. Just keep a pocket sized bottle in your bag and brush your teeth after your drinks or bars and you'll be just fine. I think after about week five my breath was back to normal...so long as I drank my 4 litres of water!!
    Good luck with LL. You'll be great and hopefully feel as good as I do this Christmas xx

    Yeah, the water definatley makes a difference. I have an awful taste in my mouth if I havent drank enough and am really concious of stunning other people into a coma when I speak!
    I use any breath spray as long as it doesn't contain Citric Acid then you should be fine.

    Good Luck
