Soooo I'm sitting at the computer trying to get my daughter's (she's 16) new phone activated. She walked in and here's the conversation

*big sniff* Did you fart???
Umm no why? 
OMG then what's that smell?
I don't know, what does it smell like??
It smells like farts!    
I don't smell anything. (I really don't smell anything so that totally means it's coming from me)
Mom how do you not smell it, it's right there!
I don't know maybe the cat farted
OMG she is soooo nasty.

At this point I turned around and had to grab my tummy I was giggling so much. I've read a million times about ketosis breath but I don't remember what it smells like. I just wanted to know if "farts" were on the ketosis smell menu or something else is growing in my mouth.

I don't know what it smells like either; I never could smell it. Barb did and said it just smelled "Funky" what ever that is. LOL!

My husband says that I smell like corn on the cob when I'm in ketosis.   I guess that's better than cat farts!

Thank you Walter. I did google and found about 20 different sites that just stated - funky, foul breath. Just thought I'd ask those here with personal experience.

I don't have sweet breath so it either was the cat or something else funky is going on.
