I eat paleo, LCHF and i'm in ketosis and I practice IF skipping breaky everyday, however I've always had the problem of having to excessively clear my throat due to my saliva thickening up (it's not mucus) whenever I do HIIT (sprinting up stairs) and it can definitely make the session a little more challenging to endure. I'm not so sure that it's lactic acid buildup as it starts happening after the first round and I can usually feel the lactic acid buildup in my mouth after the entire session, so I can tell the difference although it may be another degree of it i'm not sure, anybody have a clue? And how I can at least partially avoid this?

Is it possible that you might not be hydrated enough before your workout? I notice the same thing happens when I'm doing HIIT, or really any cardio (stuff that gets me breathing heavily). I notice the more water I drink, the less of an issue I tend to have. Dry mouth is a problem for me! I hope this helps!
