BAD BREATH FROM LOW CARB AND LOW CALORIE DIETS
Losing weight can be good for your overall health and well-being, but certain diets come with some undesirable side effects. For example, low carb and low calorie diets can cause acetone breath or so called “keto breath,” which is sometimes described as abnormally sweet or fruity breath. Acetone breath is a symptom of ketosis – the process in which your body starts to burn stored fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. Bad breath due to ketosis can also occur when you are not eating enough, usually in conjunction with fasting or doing a diet that is very low in calories.
