Low carb diets are rich in proteins. Odor producing bacteria in your mouth love proteins , so they multiply... Sometimes rinse with diluted peroxide (1:1) may help. If not - find a dentist who can do "full mouth detox" We do it exclusively in our breath center in Calabasas, CA

What is healthier between a low gi diet or a low carbohydrate diet?

Similiar

Low glycemic and low carbohydrate diets are similar. Low glycemic diets try to keep people from eating simple carbs and direct them to complex carbohydrates . Simple carbs are readily converted in to sugers and raise blood sugers .

What 's the definition of a low-carbohydrate diet?

<20%

Behavior-diet-items
All foods are made up of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Current recommendations for adults are diets composed of 45-65% carb, 10-35% protein, and 20-35% fat. Low carb is usually understood to mean <20% carb but can just mean a restriction in carb content.

Need help with a low carbohydrate diet as a vegetarian?

Eat beans

Diet
Most vegetarians are really carboterians so eat more plant based protein: beans, nuts/seeds, tofu/tempeh, legumes, avocados, quinoa. Aim for 7-9 servings of veggies/fruits and use only whole grains such as quinoa, brown rice and steel cut oats. You can use plant based protein powders such as pea powder, maca powder and or chia since they are gluten free as well. There are vegan protein bars too

Anyone know what is a low carbohydrate diet?

See below

Healthy_eating
A carbohydrate is a molecule made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen which are chained together. Another term is a saccharide, or more commonly, a sugar. Complex molecule chains of saccharides are called complex carbohydrates or starches. In common usage, a "carb" is used for a food which has a high content of carbohydrates. A "low carb diet" would be a diet low in carbs and high in protein and fat.
