I've been wondering, why do the posts regarding the keto diet say that you know its working by the metal taste in your mouth, and a strange smell in your urine? What causes this?

The presense of ketones is what causes these effects. Also, let it be known that having ketones present in the body is not a healthy thing.dedication is what the outside world calls obsession, to me it is an obsession - p0w3rlift3r

Thanks for the replies, I kinda thought if your body was reacting like that, it must not be too healthy....
I really never knew how the body reacted to this diet.....
Isn't this the same as the Atkin's diet?
I know a few girls from work that have lost ALOT of weight from that diet, (no carbs) but I never heard them complain about the metal taste or unusual urine odor...
P.S. Are ketones already in the body, or does a depletion of carbs produce them?
