    I tend to be in ketosis like 3 or 4 days a week, and I love it. But every time it happens, my g/f comments about my breath. She says it's not bad, but that it smells like a gas stove turned on but before ignition.


    And I think "what the hell?, isn't it supposed to smell like apples?? Oh well..."


    Anyone experiencing something similar?

    Yeah. I go in ketosis when I IF. I work with my sister and she can tell when I'm in ketosis when I talk to her. She just says my breath smells "sweet".


    Everyone is different I suppose.

    I love ketosis but I've never had the sweet breath. My breath actually gets better or less noticeable when I keto but not sweet in anyway.


    Sometimes after a hard workout my sweat does smell like acetone. Seems like if I stay alkaline this doesn't happen though.

    How do you know when you're in ketosis? When you say you love ketosis, other than the accelerated weight-loss, do you feel anything different? My carb intake is under 100, usually around 70 or so. Some days it's under 50. How can I tell when I'm in ketosis? I have a sweet taste in my mouth sometimes - is that ketosis?

    You can buy Keto-sticks, I think they are called.


    The way I figure it, if I'm losing fat stores, I"m in ketosis. I certainly have been experiencing the benefits of it for several months now.
