Metallic taste = ketosis?
I noticed last night at about 8pm that I had this weird metallic taste in my mouth. When I came home from my meeting, I brushed my teeth asap a couple of times to no avail. the metallic flavor persists. I looked it up online, and metallic mouth flavor is a symptom of being in ketosis. Yay! I ordered ketostix on monday, and once they come in i will see if i am right. Yesterday was a good eating day. i had french onion soup with gruyere (no crouton) and a salad with chopped eggs and veg on it for lunch. For dinner, i had some buffalo wings with a side salad with blue cheese dressing. Fingers crossed that i turn things around this week!
