Are you on a low-carb diet and keep wondering why people around you (your family/friends/colleagues) try to keep a healthy distance from you? Well,the reason could be that you have BAD BREATH !!
A low-carb diet works on the concept of ketosis wherein the body uses fat as a source of energy. The by-products of ketosis are ketones and fatty acids,and the excess ketones are excreted in the urine and breath thus causing the bad breath!!
Of course there are different methods to mask it like drinking lots of water,chewing sugarless gum or sucking on sugarless mints and swishing your mouth with water after eating food.Since the cause of the bad breath is metabolic-the only cure would be to get back to eating a balanced diet(with carbs) and getting on a regular exercise routine for your weight loss goals.
It's your choice:
a)Low-carb diets+bad breath=no friends + weight loss + associated dangers(of low-carb diet)
b)Balanced diet +exercise= friends +weight loss + good health
Question: What would YOU choose?
