I’m about 12 or 13 weeks in, I stopped counting. I’m afraid I have bad breath and I’m not even sure whether it is keto breath. But I never used to have it before.
I have just met someone and I’m starting to date him, so I have extra reason for wanting to make this bad breath go away!
I like how I feel on more protein so I have increased my protein… Could that be a cause? I really didn’t mind more fat, it made variety a little harder but I could do more fats and less protein if that would solve it.
I try frequent toothbrushing and mints sometimes and plenty of mouthwash and flossing— but none of that seems to help enough. I seem to have dry mouth and maybe that is part of the issue? I never had that before, either. I have never had an issue with my breath before Keto.
The cursory online search I did seems to show that keto-related bad breath should’ve gone away well before now.
I ordered some chlorophyll and some peppermint oil but they haven’t gotten here yet, darn it. My workdays are packed and not a lot of time to go hunting around town for shops that might carry them.
I do find that cheese makes it worse. I’m fine with stopping cheese. perhaps I also should stop eating with heavy cream (I just buy the heavy cream and whip it myself)
Really, I would be fine with going all meat, butter, olive oil, a tiny bit of vegetables and a very occasional handful of berries… Would that help?
Any tips? Should adjust my diet?
