How to get rid of ketosis smell?
You don't want to add carbs back in. I'm confused. Why do you want to add carbs in?
I'm a long-term lowcarber and, at least before surgery, was mostly in some level of ketosis whenever I tested... but nonetheless was stalled for a lot of the past 3 years or so. So you can be in ketosis without the scale showing loss.
Drinking more water helps ****il your urine is as light as possible) and so does adding a small amount of carbs - just enough until the testers show you're only in light ketosis. Usually the smell comes when your ketosis level is deeper (and the sticks show the darker levels). Brushing your tongue is helpful, too.

Gina - Becky just reached goal so I assume that`s why she is asking about carbs. Good for you Becky on avoiding them until now.....smart girl - wish I had waited!
As for the ketosis smell my daughter mentions from time to time that I have an odour and I too catch a whiff sometimes of what I consider a metallic kind of smell though the other day I could have sworn a small baby had thrown up on me! Oh the joys of this journey.
Hope the water works for you Becky!
