Dry mouth help!


Recommended Posts

If you eat too low carb and put yourself into ketosis you can experience an unquenchable dry mouth.  


Low carb will deplete your glycogen stores and you will lose lots of water along with the glycogen (2 water molecules/1 glycogen molecule, I believe).  


Also, W30 eating is much lower in sodium than the SAD full of processed foods, therefore you may lose more water due to low sodium intake.


With both scenarios you can drink all the water you want, but you will be urinating a lot of it away thus leading to the dry mouth feeling.


Solution: Add more salt! Add more starchy carbs!
