    According to my research the constant horrible metallic/salty taste in my mouth is because of ketosis, caused by burning fat. (Which is ironic, because neither my weight or my size is changing lately.)
    The problem is that everything I eat tastes so horrid that I don't even want to eat any more. I do use Listerine breath strips, which helps some between meals but doesn't help with the taste of food.
    Any tips? Anything I can do about this? I'm getting really, really friggin tired of it, and it's only been going on for a couple of weeks.

    Try Chlorofresh.
