Getting Constipated and Having Bad Breath with Atkins

Posted by Swati S.

Some people who have tried Atkins say that they get constipated, and what is worse, have a bad breath.

I came across an article that mentioned how to avoid this.

Drink Lots of water.

Chew on Parsley

Clean your teeth regularly.

Take Magnesium. 500mg, 2-3 pills at bedtime. You'll go like clockwork.
Thats nothing a large cup of coffee and a big plate of Pad Thai wont take care of.
Wouldn't that kind of indicate that the diet is maybe not a good one? I am not that familiar with Atkins, but a diet that makes you constipated can't be good for you. In fact, I would imagine that if you want to lose weight, constipation would be the last thing you'd want to encourage.

Do keep in mind that people with diseases such as Crohn's can not tolerate Magnesium and may trigger a pretty serious episode.

I agree with Stephanie, any diet that causes adverse results is probably not a good thing for you.
