    metallic flavor in mouth

    Primal Fuel
    Hey there humans!
    so for the last few days on and off I've experienced a metal flavor in my mouth, almost like what blood tastes like. My appetite has decreased recently an I think my carbs have been under 50gs. Is this a result of that? What else could cause this?
    Thanks guys!

    Liz.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    Yeah, was going to say congratulations! I've been on PB a month & still not in ketosis, despite being under 50g a day.

    Various sleeping pills can cause this too, and cause "taste perversion" - where things that normally taste sweet or good taste bitter. Ambien and the other newer type sleep aids can do this. Just in case you possibly took something like that for the first time.......it could cause it.

    Have you eaten any pine-nuts? That does it to some people.
