The Keto Diet - a low-carb, high-fat diet - is designed for weight loss but it does have an unpleasant side effect -- bad breath. Main points: - When on the diet, ketones produced in the liver cause a rotting fruit/metallic smell. - Keep hydrated with water, chewing mints or gum containing xylitol helps. - Brush teeth twice a day and floss.
