Green tea is EXCELLENT for bad breath because it contains a little fluoride, and helps boost the metaboism. Plus, it's real good for overall health. And about celebrities...I was watching a show on the Wisdom channel last night and they were saying that most people that maintain a thin "celebrity like" figure naturally only make up 5% of the population. The remaining people who want to reach a very thin figure are constantly yo yoing. If you have comcast cable, it's located under the "on demand" section. Oh and, google green tea for bad breath, you'll be suprised. Oh and Ketosis is an acid substance that occurs when there isn't enough glucose in the blood and fats have to be used.

I do actually drink ALOT of green tea (gen maicha to be precise) - didn't know that would help though.
I'm not really trying to be thin. I weight 139lb and am 5ft 5 so I am a tad chunky. But my goal weigth is 132-134lb which is still a healthy weight. So,I don't really need to lose that much, you know, just enough that I'll get more definition.
When I see some of those celebs who are super thin it makes me wince!! Britney, JLo and Catherine Zeta Jones are much healthier weights/ Its funny that they are considered 'thick' even though they're probably not even 135lb and are way under the US average!!!
Bad breath (Halitosis) due to ketosis is caused by acetone.
Oral remidies & increased hygiene will do little as the acetone is being released by the lungs and then follows into the mouth.
You do not have to put yourself in ketosis (carbohydrate deprivation) to loose weight - simply take in (eat) less energy than you expell (burn) and weight will be lost. Eat a more balanced diet including more carbohydrates and the problem will be eliminated. Unless you have induced diabetes onto yourself, in which case both being overweight and having halitosis are symptoms.
<<just focusing on lots of salads, veggies, water, protein, nuts and grains.>>
Salads have no carbohydrates.
Most veggies have a minimal amount.
Water has no macronutrient value.
Protein can't be used as carbohydrates.
Nuts are 90% fat by caloric weight.
Grains are carbohydrate (starch and sugar) rich - eat more spread with every meal. Considering how much fat nuts contain, and that fat has over twice the calories per gram than carbohydrates, dropping the nuts for more fruit or grains will have little to no effect on your caloric totals and presumably alleviate the breath.
95% of the population is not yo-yo'ing.
True, roughly 5% of the population are born pure ectomorphs (slim).
Less than 1-2% of the population have a medical reason (hypothyroidism etc..) that causes them to be overweight.
Between a overpaid team of personal trainers, dietary helpers, plastic surgeons, slimming camera lenses, clever lighting and airbrushing - "Celebrities" are the last people anyone should be using a physical guide, role model or benchmark for comparison.
Green tea (extract or decaf) is most absolutely quite exellent.
First of all, I've heard parsley supplements will clean your breath & body odor.
Raw parsley is probably even better (and it's tasty).
Secondly, add some carbs to your diet. Whole grains, like whole wheat, oatmeal, whatever.
Thirdly, forget about those celebrities. All they think about all day long is how perfect they look. They may look dazzling on camera, but in real life? I bet they look like scarecrows, aging too fast under all that makeup, and they probably have ketosis, too, under all the perfume they wear to mask it. Supermodels are disgusting. I look at them and can imagine the smell of ketosis (like nail polish remover) and vomit. Sorry, that's gross. But that's how I look at them.
