I only started today but my consultant told me that you can get halitosis on this diet for a couple of days. I'm really paranoid about this. So what can I have - if anything, to combat this? Is gum allowed?
gum isnt allowed but you can use mouth wash , breath spray or listerine strips . I use the strips and they are lovely and make your breath really fresh , but they are hard to come by in the uk ... some 'savers' sell them but i get mine off e bay
the bad breath is a side effect off ketosis - some of the by-products produced get expelled through your lungs/breath - the rest goes through your urine (hence testing with ketosticks to see if you are in ketosis)
