Bad taste in my mouth

I am back on low carbs after about a year break and gaining all the weight I lost. The part about LCing is the bad taste in my mouth. I brush my teeth alot. and use those cinnamon strips, but I worry about bad breath. I am in my late 60's and play cards with people even older than me and I notice their breath. I am not sure if it is an age thing or the way the eat, I just know, I don't want someone thinking the same thing about me.

Bad breath can be caused by poor digestion also so make sure you are digesting your food properly. Do you get gas and bloating? That is a sign of poor digestion. I take a digestion capsule with every meal.

Cup your hands in front of your mouth and blow gently a "breath" into your palms. Immediately bring this "breath" up to your nose and sniff. If you can't smell bad breath you are probably ok and don't need to worry!!

try chewing on some sprigs of raw parsley after eating, that helps for a lot of people.

good luck on your diet!

Once you are in ketosis and the body has depleted the store of glycogen, it burns fat. A by-product is acetone which is expelled through urine and the lungs. Drinking more water helps flush ketones out of the system and I've read that parsley may help as well. Other than that, adding carbs to get out of ketosis is the only way, and then weight loss may be much more difficult.
