Ketone Question

Postby sandys » May 31st, 2006, 7:49 pm

Has anyone experienced having their saliva taste kind of sweet after a few days on the MF plan? I'm thinking that it may be ketones, but my little UA test strip is neg for ketones.

I am doing well with the plan but adding a little extra protein (3-4 oz) and a couple of Tbls. of cream a day. I'm also doing great with my water

Anyone want to share their opinion? I haven't been able to find much past "Ketone Breath".
Shake it if you got it, Baby!

Hi, Sandy. Welcome since I don't think I met you yet!

Yes, you are probably in ketosis which is where you want to be. BUT the ketosis level very slight and usually doesn't show up on the infamous ketone strip.

If you do a search on this forum for the subjet, try "ketosis" -- there have been lots and lots of discussions regarding it and folks experiencing just what you are now: in ketosis but not showing on the strip. In the end, the advice seems to be bag the strips and go on how you feel and how your weight loss is going.

Keep shakin'!

Diana!

Thanks for leading me in the right direction. I did the search and was relieved to read about others with the sweet saliva thing goin' on. I'm glad I don't have the metalic taste....yet??!! This forum is so informative!!

I will be on guard about bad breath. I may just go give my hubby a little kiss and see if he has anything to say about it.

My loss has been slight, so now I expect to see some pounds vanish . Abra-cadabra!!!!! :-P

Hi Sandys,
Do a search here on "breath" also. You're not alone...:)
