Default Tasting ketones?

Does anyone else TASTE the ketones? It's disgusting and I can't get the taste out of my mouth even with eating. (Unless, I eat carbs!)

I brush my teeth more often when that happens. And it's worth it since this is the only diet I've ever been succussful

I've heard that being in ketosis makes you taste/your breath smell like sugar. Maybe chew some gum or buy some strong mouth wash to keep around?

I haven't found anything that gets rid of it. For me brushing my teeth actually makes it worse. Chewing a really strong peppermint gum helps me temporarily (10-20 minutes max).

One of my close friends thought I had a mouth infection, I don't think I do. I said it must be the low carb diet I eat. Does it smell that gross?? We were only having a conversation (lol) and she thought she should tell me. I wanted to die...then I brushed my teeth 10 thousand times and flossed and rinsed with salt water. I don't want to ask my husband as I don't want him to notice or have to tell me he didn't want to hurt my feelings. And I get much closer to him than I do to her!

I do Real Estate closings and explain documents to people (sitting right next to them) and I have not seen anyone draw back yet... but then... maybe they are nice LOL and my cats just love my breath (and my stinky shoes) LOL

If I didn't trust her and love her, I would have been angry and even more embarrassed!!! But I trust her (plus she has one THOSE noses that smells everything, not just people LOL!) so I appreciated her telling me! But now I'm paranoid! I bought 2 boxes of Altoids for my purse so I have more than enough mints but everything I read online says you can't mask it no matter what!! I'm going to have to hide now for 25 more pounds (but no one said anything for the first 135 LOL!).

I try and eat a piece of sugarless peppomint gum before I go into a closing.... that helps but the water too does help..

You do??? I'm in an evening gown, my hair in an up-do, 6 inch heels and sipping a martini!

Just kidding! At this point of my day, you look better than me!

My dentist asked me this week if I'm doing a low carb diet. I asked her why she asked and she said she assumed I was because of how my breath smelled. So (as I was dying of embarrassment and trying not to drown in drool) I asked her what the smell was like. She said it's like the smell of a bunch of bananas on your kitchen counter that you forgot about and need to toss in the trash.

As far as tasting it.....sometimes I feel like I've chewed on tin foil. I rarely notice it, though, but I'm not doing ketogenic low carb.

OMG Novus!!! Rotten bananas!! I think I'm going to die, no wonder why she said something! And she thought I had rotting teeth or something! I'm not on a ketogenic diet either but I think I dip in and out of ketosis with my low carb habits.

Yeah, it's pretty gross, but you get used to it eventually...
