The most common cause of ketosis (acetone breath), is the partial oxidation of fats (which produces ketones, hence the name). A lack of protein in the diet is sometimes a contributory factor. There ar also diabetic connections. I answered this question in a lot more detail in the past, you might find it is still in the blurtit database from way back.

I buy a keto box every month and I'm doing well. The ketogenic diet is so named because it forces the body to produce ketones, special substances produced by the breakdown of fat. The diet is based on foods high in fat and protein.
