    bad breath...~! EW!

    I'm eating lots of vegetables, greens and pumpkin. A bit of salad. A fair bit of meat and fish, as well as lard, butter, and a very small amount of fruit. I'm also eating dates, nuts and seeds.

    My breath, stinks.

    Any advice?

    (Am i right in assuming it's ketosis?)

    Make a dentist appointment first, just to be sure there are no tooth/gum issues.

    IF you have allergies and mucus builds up in the nasal passages that run the back of your throat that could be causing the breath. Make sure to floss every day and use mouthwash and gargle it- it breaks up any mucus or anything if you have it. Oh and my husband bought a tongue scraper at earthfare and it has seemed to improve his breath as well.

    To figure out if you're in ketosis, either get some sticks to pee on that will tell you, or calculate the amount of carbs you are consuming every day using a nutrient tracking site like fitday.com.

    When did you start primal living? I found that my breath was AWFUL for the first couple of weeks, but after that, it seemed to get better without me doing anything.

    How the heck do you know you have bad breath unless someone tells you? I've never trusted that lick your hand & smell it method so always just assume I have it & don't talk too close to anyone's face. Paranoid, I guess.

    ^My boyfriend always tells me =P but I lick and smell my hand too, and it usually smells weird when he claims it smells bad.

    I can taste my own bad breath in the morning. It's awful. I drink some coffee and it vanishes.

    Make sure you don't use alcohol-based mouthwash. Direct correlation to mouth cancer.

    Interesting you say that. My 3yo has gnarly breath, but she also has a head cold. I'm thinking "we brush your teeth like maniacs, how do you have dog breath?"
    you saying this about drainage makes total sense!
