Hi - sounds like you are doing Cambridge? I can only speak for LighterLife - but sounds like you might need to drink more water - on LL we drink 3-4 LITRES - and you mentioned you are just drinking 4-5 pints.....did you mean pints? That might be why if you are not drinking enoughw ater to flush your system?
We abstain 10% on LL, so I don;t know what effect eating might have??
I have heard people complain of a metalic taste when they go in to Ketosis - but never heard it called salty - but that may be what it is.
Be sure to ask on the Cambridge Diet threads too as there may be someone else who experienced that.
So the incessant bad breath despite multiple tooth brushings (like, morning, noon, night, and after every shake) is just.... burning fat?!?! I was warned about it, but I thought it was just a byproduct of the chemicals. 0.o Wahoo!
Wahoo! So every time my mother covers her nose when she walks into a conversation with me, or my dad rolls down the car window when we are driving my new car, I can stop feeling sad and hurt, and like "I can't help it!" And I can say, "Fat stinks. Literally! And there it goes - bye bye!!"
