Smelly Breath - are there any mints I'm allowed?


Silver Member

This ketosis/smelly breath thing..... my counsellor said I cannot chew gum or have any type of mint. Is that right?

I'm already self conscious about how awful I look, I don't think I can deal with stinking as well.

Sorry for all the questions.....

Chewing gums and mints will make you feel hungry, that's why they're not allowed. Why don't you try a mouth freshening spray instead? I'm really lucky, I don't get the ketosis breath, I just suffer with a really sweet taste in my mouth all the time. My CDC says this is my version of the bad breath.

Thank you! I hadn't thought about spray. Genius!
Ive just ordered some fresh breath strips off ebay...listerine ones. They are great. As im re-strating tomorrow, they will be in my bag, drawers in work, coat pocket, under my pillow and just about anywhere i go!
You could also try making some cold peppermint tea and using that as a flavouring for your water; I love it and it might help.
What about extra mints. They are sugar and citric acid free. My counsellor suggested that the odd one wont hurt.
