Hi there, I went low carb 4 months ago (after reading Gary Taubes) and then experimented with SANE (Jonathan Bailor, The Calorie Myth) and his recommendation of eccentric workouts - but I was still looking for a bit of an extra kick and a more "whole" concept that includes more than just diet. Also I want to lose fat a little faster and I found that eating butter sticks and cream (Taubes) or double digit servings of vegetables daily (Bailor) did make me feel much better than I was ever feeling during my carb centred diet, that I had before (fewer period pain, no tiredness during the day, decrease of appetite, lower blood pressure) - but it did not make me lose weight (or at least not that much). And now since my hunger has decreased I have started the 21 day Primal Blueprint challenge. However - I am in and out light ketosis for the last 4 months, and I STILL have this bad breath, that is - so I heard in many podcasts - supposed to disappear after a while. I am brushing my teeth - and my tongue every few hours, but of course I don't want to mess with my body chewing some gum with artificial sweeteners in it. When will it stop? And until then, what can I do to deal with it? I've never had bad breath, and my husband says that it's terrible. I am now scared to get too close to colleagues at work and it has made me really self conscious all the time.
