    Aargh, during the last few days I have started to smell really bad. I'm not sweating much and I've never had a problem like this before. Has anyone else had this, will it go away, what can I do...

    I forgot to say - in underarm area. Could this be a toxin dump?

    I think so. My pits are stinkier than usual, too. I'm taking it as a positive sign.

    YES. Toxins. And if it makes you feel better, I've been using natural deodorants for years, but still battled the stink if I wasn't vigilant with them ... but in the last few weeks (since CT?!) I am not stinking at all anymore, even when I'm sweating up a storm. This has GOT to be good news!

    I use coconut oil mixed 50:50 with baking soda, fwiw. But if that's not heavy enough while you're pouring out the stink, I've found that Tom's & Burt's Bees natural deodorants work well.

    @ Agatha I haven't used deodorant of any kind for 12 years and I don't stink. Let all those toxins out and don't even use natural products. What is there MUST come out.

    I remember this being a side effect that showed up in some people with Atkins- could it have more to do with ketosis than ct?

    Weeks 2-3 LRX I was foul! Pit smell that I was fearful would linger in rooms after I left...it was really nasty! And my breath was just disgusting. My poor husband didnt want to come near me...lol. I even went a bought regular heavy duty full of horrible things deodorant for when I was in public.

    I think the pits are a lymphatic drainage/detox. Also had sweat in the groin area...another big lymph area. The breath was definitely keto. Bleh.

    Week 4 I was fresh as a daisy :) Thank goodness!
