Some female Keto Dieters say while they may be looking good they aren’t smelling so good down there! The popular Keto diet encourages people to restrict carb eating that take in lots of proteins and healthy fats.
According to Insider, there is a crazy side-effect of this popular weight loss diet that some female Reddit users are calling “keto crotch”.
The term Keto Crotch refers to the seemingly unavoidable smell of women’s vaginas as a result of the high fat diet that takes their bodies time to get adjusted to.
“Foods change the pH of the body. When this happens, the body will emit certain odors,” De Fazio told INSIDER. “The keto diet [may] change your vaginal pH, which alters your vaginal odor — and it may not smell like roses.”
Some Keto Reddit users have said about this :
“I am very, SMELLY” one distressed Redditer shared.
“Have any of you tried vegetarian keto and found a reduction in your funk factor, specifically below the belt?” a concerned redditor asked.
Another advised: “It took me a couple months to ‘level out,’” in terms of the intimate funk.
It costs to be skinny and fit, but are you willing to omit a funky smell?
