Are aldehydes produced when someone is ketotonic too, or is that something else?
Did you mean ketogenic, if not, I’m afraid I don’t know.
How much water are you drinking, Javizy? And what does the order resemble?
Yeah, ketogenic. I’d assume pretty much everyone at the early stages is ketogenic. Acetone is what I was thinking of. It’s common for people on low-carb diets to have bad breath as a result of acetone, and I think it can add an odour to urine as well. I drink between 2-3 litres of mineral water throughout the day.
My diet is probably about 60% veg, 30% protein and 20% fat at the moment, so it’s not like most ridiculous low-carb diets made up of 60%+ fat from sources like butter, cream and bacon and next to no fibre. I was planning to add buckwheat this week, and oatbran next week. The carbohydrate in those should resolve the acetone problem, right? I’ve been eating parsnips, swede, avocado and cucumber so I have been getting some carbohydrates.
