Default One Big Problem

Hello again
Im currently doing the Rapid Fat Loss diet together with IF.
My days consists of fast 16-18 hours then eat in the window of 6-8 hours.
As the RFL goes, im eating only fat free meat, salad and no carb veggies(almost no carb, like broccoli etc.). And i take 6g fish oil.
My problem is: My breath absolute stinks like an old fish, and that comes from ketose,right? But is this nesessary to loose all the fat? or is there a better way to loose the fat as fast ?

Just increase your veggie carb intake. Everything will be fine.

If you'd like to get out of ketosis, you might need to get around 20g/day of active carbs--how you do that is up to you.

ketones* (since you asked)

when you fast or eat a meal devoid of carbohydrates, your body dips into its glycogen stores to provide glucose for several tissues. when these run low, your body begins to convert some fatty acids to ketones since certain tissues prefer these over fatty acids (ex: the brain). the production of ketones also makes sense since amino acids are being cleaved in the body to produce glucose. the amine group is removed and produces ammonia (a base). ketones are acidic, so the balance makes sense.

3 main ketones are formed: beta-hydroxybutyrate, acetoacetate, and acetone. your body doesn't focus on acetone like the other 2. instead you generally breath the acetone out (if you've ever worked with acetone, you know it evaporates very easily).

i noticed this smell during some long fasts and low CHO days. if you wanna get rid of it, you need to lower your ketone production: therefore (as stated by others) you need to consume carbohydrates since that is what the ketones are making up for.

or just deal with the breath. plan your IF days when you're gonna be alone and not talk to people up close heh...
