    I followed the Dukan diet for a few months and never got ketone breath. I started this diet last Mon with no problems, 2nd fast day on Weds also passed by with no problems, On the Thursday I went to circuit training and on Friday my non-fast day I was getting horrible breath smell whenever I sniffed! Today is my 3rd fast day and I went to circuits at 9:30, I ate nothing until 4:30 and only after that got the ketone breath Any hints welcome. I haven’t really got more than a few pounds to lose but am following this diet to try and stay the same weight
