Since doing IF i have bad breath. Any BP tricks?
I bought some PepperSmith fresh mints which have no Aspartame, only Xylitol. It helps but doesn't last.
Is the bad taste in your mouth kind of a sour taste? If so, you might be burning too much muscle. One of the benefits of fasting is autophagy. A prolonged sour taste in your mouth might be a sign that the autophagy is excessive. If that's what's going on, you might need more protein in your diet (assuming that the protein you already get is being digested effectively).
Not sour really, i was discussing with my friend who will do the Ramadan soon, he told me he has the same problem when fasting.

How much water do you drink during fasts?
Water is a good point.
I drink water and lemon around 2 liters a day.
upp the water to 3 liters, keep an eye on your protein intake ( calculate your needs, and calculate what you eat for some days to get a feel for it)
Also- make sure it is not a tooth infection. Flossing helps a lot- but I only got rid of my breath problems once I added an irrigator. So: brush, floss, irrigate. great.
