    Default Best fragrance for keto diet

    What will smell the best on me when I’m in ketosis?

    Well, I will refrain from my usual rants against the keto diet, but understand that when in ketosis, your main source of bodily odor will be your breath. Most gums and mints have a good amount of sugar so try and find some gum that is sugar free and WITHOUT sugar alcohols and keep that on hand. Also make sure you are brushing your teeth at least three times a day and using mouthwash in the morning and at night.

    As for your natural body scent, if you are doing keto properly, it shouldn't change all that much. The typical "sourness" experienced by keto dieters is generally them not consuming the right amount of fats coupled with way too much protein. I've had to tell several of my clients to back off the protein and drink more water because of this. Even so, it can't be totally mitigated. So avoid any type of fragrance with a sour note and also not anything overly sweet. Honestly, I would stick to designer, simple fragrances for the duration of the diet and you will be just fine.

    Interesting, I’ve been working a ketogenic lifestyle for almost a year, dropped a solid 58lbs so far but even better, feel amazing and have so much more energy.

    I didn’t really consider it but yes, being In ketosis does alter our chemistry quite a bit, especially skin smell, sweat and such. Good question!

    I heard about the breath thing so I assumed I could also affect body odor too. Thanks for that answer Andy

    Most likely a Creed fragrance from an authorized retailer or distributor.

    I was on the keto diet before I ever knew it was a thing. Lol
    Never affected my scent or my breath.

    Then you either aren't in ketosis or don't notice it on yourself. Proper ketosis absolutley changes body scent.

    Lol. Not a bad idea really since you can’t eat much of it when you’re on Keto. Perhaps the scent of ‘roasted potatoes’ might be worth looking into.

    If you have actually been in ketosis for six years, which is highly doubtful, I suggest you see a medical professional immediately, as your health is in severe risk right now. I'm not saying this to be glib or to be "cool".

    And a bargain at that. They could easily charge double.

    A bubble gum, since ketone bodies created by glycogenolysis will be smelt from your mouth from your starving stomach.

    But fragrances... do you really think that a fragrance will smell differently depending on a diet? General nutrition may change the global state of your body and maybe slightly the moisture of your skin (thus possibly - I said possibly - change the performance of a frag) - same when it's warm and one sweats, but I've never heard a fragrance change smell because of that. Dior Homme will not turn to Kouros when you're on diet... no worries.

    (That said, your perception of your fragrance may slightly change because of the state of fatigue created by the diet, that for sure).

    @AndyJB:
    Why would avoiding Sugar Alcohols in such small amounts (~<1g) be necessary on Ketosis?

    Finding a Breath Freshener without Polyol's seems pretty challenging, as more and more research points towards Sugar Alcohols (specifically Xylitol & Erythritol, IIRC) having additive Breath Freshening properties while simultaneously having a very low (~<5) Glycemic Index, and Calories for an additive Sweetener that is also useful in product manufacturing (specifically in the delivery systems).

    Anyways, for a fragrance that's not overly sweet or sour, I'll say maybe Versace Pour Homme is worth a try.

    Dude...if a doctor, a medical doctor, thinks you are on steroids, that is NOT HEALTHY.
    I'm not going to respond anymore to this, because the mods will shut down the thread, but it is not healthy to be on a keto diet for that long. Please get some help.
