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)

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)

After reading about these wonderful transformations on paleo, I decided to give it a go. I 've never been a junk food junky and had a fairly decent diet. Didn't need to lose wight, but the gut healing was appealing as I bloat easily. Gave up... (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?

Don't forget to brush your tongue, too!

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 drink soda water with fresh lemon bits in it to help :) Or chew peppermint leaves. I am still wondering how to get the rest of me from smelling!!

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)

I see bowls of fennel seeds at Indian restaurants sometimes in lieu of peppermints. It's a great alternative. I also love chewing on parsley or cilantro

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)

Limit nuts and seeds. Both contain fats -- yay. Both contain horribly unhealthy omega 6:omega 3 ratios -- boo. Additionally, they may contain significant amounts of lectins, but what doesn't these days? Mostly, the reasons to limit or even... (more)

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)

You have keto breath and nothing more. A half a yam or sweetpotato every other day microwaved first to just soft, then sliced into rounds and pan fried in coconut oil for breakfast along with eggs and bacon got rid of my keto breath. Just enough... (more)

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!!!!! To question #1, that is. Brushing with even the sweetest of toothpastes has never interrupted ketosis for me, as per ketostix results. Also, I don't believe a bit of insulin would push you out of ketosis (assuming that toothpaste would... (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)
