    I'm just wondering about people's experience with bad breath on ketosis. Is it really as bad as I've been reading about? I've cut down a lot of carbs although I'm not sure that they are low enough to go into ketosis, but to be honest I think having permanent bad breath would be enough to prevent me from doing so.
    Is this something that goes away or is it just something you have to face on a very low-carb diet? And if you don't have it, does it mean you're not in ketosis?
    Thanks for the information,
