Help! My breath smells bad.

The good news is that if you’ve noticed that your breath isn’t as fresh as you’d like it means that your body is running on fat!

Congratulations!

You are fat adapted!

Great news for your waistline but what should you do about your breath?

We wouldn’t suggest you use gum or mints, and obviously we wouldn’t recommend brushing your teeth more often, but perhaps having mouthwash on hand is a good alternative?

If you want gum, the Peppersmith brand is the best bet, it’s free of sugar and aspartame and made with xylitol, which is the best sweetener on a low carb diet. You can get it at Holland And Barrett.
