Bad breath and bloating

Hi, I have only been doing the Paleo diet for 10 days so I know it's early days. I have horrible bad breath, a grippy painful tummy, terrible stinky farts and a dose of thrush! I have read other posts about Fruits etc but I don't eat much fruit and I was fine with it pre-Paleo. I also steam most of my veg and eat just a few almonds and olive oil and good fish/meats. My husband is moaning that my breath smells and i just feel terrible really. Does this pass in time as although I love th diet I don't want to feel as bad as this for long. Thanks

The breath might be from ketosis. The bloating could be from any number of things. Eggs, nuts, or high-FODMAP veg.

It will pass.. had the same thing with big bouts of tummy upset. stay off the magnesium for a day or 2. Digestive enzymes and probiotics work great as suggested.

It should pass. I would probably try some digestive enzymes and probiotics, though. Raw sauerkraut is an easy, obvious option, but there are many others, as well.
