Hello everyone ..About 4 weeks ago i started with intermittent fasting combined with a massive increase in the consumption of dietary fat. Nevertheless, my carb intake didn't go quite as low as one would expect (it's pretty hard for me to do so).... (more)

Do i need to lower my carb-intake further despite a daily fasting-period of at least 20 hours? Is this still necessary for complete fat adaption and eventually for getting rid of my bad breath?I'm not sure carbs have anything to do with bad... (more)

Hey folks :) actually I think I already know some stuff about dry skin and paleo, also that it can be worst before it becomes better. But, my skin is realy, realy bad. When I press my finger nail in the back of my hand for just a second,... (more)

I also urge you to have your thyroid panel checked, a lot can change in your values in a year or two. Also, have you considered drinking bone broth? Calcium, magnesium, collagen, glycine and proline, are some of the important constituents of... (more)

I am new to this site (and paleo) but your symptoms are similar to mine, bad breath and consitipation. I also feel low in energy. I started the changes in my diet two weeks ago. So far all I have changed is adding meat back into my diet,... (more)

You're in ketosis, but your body isn't yet adapted to burning ketones (and fat), it will go away after a while if you stick to it, once it does, you'll know you're fat adapted. You might even experience the dreaded "low carb flu" until you... (more)

Sure, you can brush your teeth before and after bed, but what about the in-between? I would think having fresh breath in the morning would be a plus for married couples? Am I wrong?

You could also try oral probiotics. I think they've helped me immensely. They are a bit pricey, though. Maybe the money you save by not using toothpaste or mouthwash (from previous comments) would make up for it , though.

So I guess I'm in ketosis? I could strip paint with my breath. Does your body eventually even out so it's not so awful tasting? I'm only 1.5 weeks in, so I'm guessing this is just me entering ketosis for the first time. (Which means I'm... (more)

I don't know how long term ketosis can be good. There is a study out that women performed worse on memory tests when their diets were too low carb. I was on as severe diet once, I believe we were allowed as much as one piece of bread a day,... (more)

I've been doing paleo for about 2 months, and things are going well. I lost 7 of the 15 pounds I want to lose and am really enjoying my more healthy eating habits. Suddenly, by breath became crazy offensive. I'm clearly not in ketosis because... (more)

Any chance you are having stomach issues? I know constipation can cause bad breath... other stomach issues might as well.

I have been Paleo (ish) for about a month now. When I say "ish" I still incorporate dairy and have cheat meals up to twice a week. Generally I have an overall feeling of wellness, lean-ness, more energy and abdominal bloating is GONE! However I... (more)

Thanks for this! Just bought them on my lunchbreak! They taste suprisingly good, even while chewing! I've had a little addiction to chewing gum - especially when i feel keto-breathy and gum doesn't even seem to help that much.

Ok, I've been using a Paleo structured diet for about 2 months, and by structured I do me loosely. I have moved to high protein and fat intake, and completely limited my carbs, and completely cut out legumes. Salads with no dressing, and a... (more)

if your calories and/or carbs are sufficiently low, it could be ketotic breath. The remedy is obvious.

So I'm a month in, and besides the singing voice thing the only other complaint is that my breath is awful! I know ketosis can cause bad breath, but what I've read suggested that it's mostly an acetone sort of smell. This is much worse. I've... (more)

The essence of the Every Other Day Diet is that if today is strictly prohibited many of the products, then tomorrow you can eat them. Every Other Day Diet is effective diet for those who cannot!

Like a lot of folks, my favorite way to spontaneously fast is if I'm not hungry in the morning - just taking it a few more hours before eating. But I am a very faithful morning toothbrusher and have started to wonder if my seemingly benign minty... (more)

No way. Even if your body produced an insulin response to the presence of a sweet taste in the mouth (some clinical evidence suggests this is possible, but does not necessarily happen), there's no way you would interrupt the actual energy... (more)

Your dentist may also have been talking about how bacteria can enter your bloodstream from your mouth. After you brush your teeth or floss, or any dental procedures like scraping your teeth, chances are you've broken some of the small blood... (more)

Since going paleo, I feel my breath has been delightful and inoffensive, perhaps worthy of animated butterflies and small chirping birds exiting my mouth as I smile. Kidding aside, I definitely have lost the "mossy teeth" and coated tongue feel,... (more)
