Why the Keto Diet Causes Bad Breath

It may be a small price to pay for losing weight and feeling better but nobody wants to suffer bad breath in order to achieve their targets. That, unfortunately, is exactly what can happen when following the Keto diet. A ketogenic diet involves eating meat, fish, eggs and natural fats which are all low in carbohydrates.

Eating large amounts of low-carb foods produces acetone which releases odours, variously described as:

– Metallic

– Like ammonia

– Like rotten fruit

While a low-carb diet has no adverse effects on teeth it is wise to inform your dentist who can “treat your bad-breath situation” and more information can be found at https://www.popsugar.com/fitness/Why-Does-Keto-Diet-Give-You-Bad-Breath-45048410
