Bad Breath!

Hi, I had this problem, and i got so worried when i spoke to people. I have found that the gold spot spray has helped. I am now on day 30 i think lol. One thing i will say and i dont know if anyone else has found this.

The bad breath has seemed to pass at times, alot better now. I keep checking that i am in ketosis with the test strips that i brought from boots, and i still am. I guess i am just lucky at the mo lol.

The gold spot spray did help me though.

Hope this helps:)

The advise is (as I understand it) to drink more water and brush your teeth more often.

Be careful what you use and I would check with your counsellor.

TBH, I chewed gum, although there is a risk that chewing gum can make some people feel hungry (not good if you are SSing). It didn't affect me and I found it helped.

The downside is that before the diet, I NEVER chewed gum, not even after the diet, I chew almost all the time. Still, if that was the only drawback, I'll take it.

Good Luck


Thanks for your replies! I've just been out and brough some Gold Spot but I also found cool mint listerine actives, which disolve on the tongue - does anyone know if these are okay? (I hope so as I've just tried one and they're great!!!):rolleyes:
Just bumping this up, i have also heard the disolving strips are ok, but would like confirmation as im mega paranoid about my breath!! yuk yuk!!
Yes disolving strips are ok - I use Theramed (Superdrug do it in a little handbag size bottle as well) - it is a mouthwash/toothpaste and I find I can use it when I'm out and not need to have sink/water nearby!

It does tend to get better - and as Brad says more water!!!!! Isn't that the answer for most things on here????!!!
