my breath isn't too bad (I hope!Bit paranoid about that, but nobody complained-yet..) but I have a metallic taste in my mouth. I have three packets of sugar-free gum in my bag, in different flavours..and I chew on mint leaves, which is great for freshening the mouth and getting rid of unpleasant odours. So is Parsley, by the way.

LOL LOL.. YOU'RE NOT ALONE! yes, I have experienced the bad breath in ketosis several times... It's very unpleasant and can be embarrassing I can brush and clean my tongue all day and night but it's still there (lol lol lol ) .. I just chew the Extra Sugar Free Gum just to get a pleasant taste in my mouth for the time being. Wink
Only thing good about that is when I'm going thru this phase I know the fat burning process is in FULL EFFECT! Very Happy

What is that metal taste in the mouth. I have it all the time and it drives me crazy. Now I am self conscious that it also smells bad.

It's the ketones you're breathing out that are smelly... and peeing out. A by-product of Ketosis. They are released when the body burns fat.

You're definitely not alone! My husband cannot stand the smell of my dragon breath and he can smell it even when I hold my breath! I can't tell when I have it...no bad taste or metallic taste in my mouth...which is REALLY bad since I don't know when I actually have bad breath! Good news is that it comes and goes. I eat mini altoids to mask it if I'm going to be interacting with people! I'll have to try chewing on mint leaves....haven't tried that.
