I’m a month post op and I noticed that as my body is constantly in ketosis, I feel like I always smell. Do any of you have any experience of smelly crotches and breathe?

Any tips to alleviate the smelliness?

There was a recent thread about bad breath. One suggestion was to chew parsley. On the smelly crotch, there's a real thing called "keto crotch ". You can Google it. Not sure there is a cure.

Congrats 💜 you're a fat burn machine 💃

I scrub those areas (underarms and V area) with soap and a small brush (like a mani pedi or body brush) to really get rid of the bacteria accumulated on the surface. Then perhaps wipes throughout the day.

Good luck 🌈

For me it's my armpits, but your suggestion has merit, I think I'll try and see if it makes a difference. Thanks Green Tealael!

Try lemon to clean the armpit while taking a shower or bath. hair under the armpit also traps bacteria.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
