    I am experiencing a weird slight tingle at the back of my tongue and also a sweet taste such as the one you get when you breathe in icing sugar that has puffed up into the air.
    Anyone else get this when they are losing weight? Or is something else wrong with me? lol

    I don't like artificial sweetner, and find if it's in too many things I eat or drink, that I can still taste it for ages afterwards.

    I went through a couple of months of constantly having a sweet taste in my mouth, then it went away and hasn't returned. I googled it, but no one really knows what causes it, but it's nothing to worry about.

    keotosis gives you a sweet taste like pear drops in your mouth, are you doing mainly red days??? could be that no/low carbs is causing keotosis, worth considering, but should get checked by doc if it persists just to be on the safe side as coljack says xxx

    if you are eating/drinking alot of things with artificial sweeteners added then it will probably be that.

    I am def not pregnant (unless divine intervention has struck again ;p)
    I have the odd thing with sweetener in it, but I taste aspartame as bitter and so avoid artificially sweetened things a lot.
    I guess it could be ketosis, but I do have a sore throat, so could be a bacteria infection too....
    Hmmm had it for 2 days now and if it is there tomorrow, I will see my GP about it.
    It would be my luck to get diabetes after just losing a stone!!

    If you're ill anyway and the coating on your tongue looks a bit odd then it'll be a bacterial infection. A doctor in india taught me that changes in the coating of the tongue reflect what's going on in your stomach. I wouldn't normally believe a man sitting cross-legged on the floor wearing a nappy, but i always have a funny tongue coating if i'm ill, so he wasn't wrong!!

    See how it is when your cold/infection has cleared.
