So I guess I'm in ketosis? I could strip paint with my breath. Does your body eventually even out so it's not so awful tasting? I'm only 1.5 weeks in, so I'm guessing this is just me entering ketosis for the first time. (Which means I'm metabolizing fats now, right?) Sorry world... ;)

I drink soda water with fresh lemon bits in it to help :) Or chew peppermint leaves.
I am still wondering how to get the rest of me from smelling!!

I don't know how long term ketosis can be good. There is a study out that women performed worse on memory tests when their diets were too low carb. I was on as severe diet once, I believe we were allowed as much as one piece of bread a day, but a clinic kept a close eye on my kerosine levels. Very high ketone levels can be toxic, making the blood more acid, and may damage such organs as the kidneys and liver. So even with Paleo, everything should be in moderation, and I do believe in a non-paleo day.

That actually seems odd. Less carbs should result in better breath, since there is less for the bacteria in your mouth to consume. Maybe... gingivitis?

skinny girls with bad breath are hotter than big girls that smell like a cupcake :) I chew gum (although not paleo) my wife and kids are thankful :)
