Total Weight Loss

Death Breath

When I started this blog, I promised myself that I would be honest.  I promised myself that I would share everything about weight loss.  I would share the triumph and the tragedy.  I would share the mountaintops and the valleys.  The lovely and the gross.  Today's post is the latter, the gross.

I have horrid breath!  I can't stand the taste in my mouth, especially when I wake up in the morning.  The only thing is, I am glad for it!  I have keto-breath.  My body has moved in to fat burning mode and when the body burns ketones it comes out as bad breath.  I am happy to be in ketosis.  It is easier for me to stay in ketosis than get there, so this is a very good thing.

Another good thing, is I want to drink a lot to get the taste out of my mouth.  That is quite good as plenty of water keeps my digestive system in top shape to continually flush things out there too!

My dentist will be happy because  I've increased tooth brushing.

Finally, I am looking forward to a good loss tomorrow!!


  1. LOL I'm glad you are talking to me through post and not in person. Hehehe :) Jk! I was expecting some terrible diet news. You got me!

    1. You got that right! I don't know how 65MD can stand to kiss me.

  2. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones I never really got the keto-breath though it's common and a good sign! if you have a mint plant chew a leaf that's an easy natural way to combat it.

  3. It'll soon pass and be back to nice - you'd be surprised. Great to hear your body is making the changeover. All the best (and don't forget about drinking broth/bouillon if you feel a shade 'off' for a day or two).
