I had surgery on 8/20 since then Water doesn't taste good at all. My doctor says it's common and to try other brands to find one I might like. Also I have a bad taste in my mouth most of the time. Wasn't sure if anyone experiences this, and if so Is there a brand of water you like?

Also try Water at different temperatures. You could also try other no calorie no caffeine fluids such as herbal or peppermint teas.

Water is possbily not tasting too good because you are in ketosis because of the high protein/low carb intake...tasting metallic? It will pass soon hopefully.

The bad taste is ketosis, so just be aware it smells and comes out of your pores to other to smell :P Try rinsing with mouthwash og chew on some toothpaste

yep - ketosis.

I used to love plain Water - now I only like it at restaurants. I drank a lot of Crystal Light the first couple of years after surgery - now I drink mostly flavored (but very low or no calories) waters.

Weird -- it was kind of the opposite for me. I used to hate drinking unflavored Water ("Life's too short to drink plain water," I used to say), but now I don't mind it, and sometimes I even prefer plain water. I do still like flavored water, too, but I drink a lot more plain water than I used to. Maybe you could try calorie-free water enhancers (Mio, Crystal Light, etc.). There are many flavors available, so you should be able to find one you like.

I used to like Water before my surgery and now I can't stand it. I drink propel and Powerade zero instead.
