The keto diet has risen in popularity as a fad weight-loss solution for people who want to drop pounds off their body.
Celebrities including Gwenyth Paltrow, 46, and Jenna Jameson, 44, have toted the benefits of the low-carb diet to help lose weight and stay healthy. But some women on the diet have complained about changes in their feminine region — which has since been nicknamed the 'keto crotch'.
Women - Health - Increase - Women - Vaginas
According to Women's Health, there has been an increase in women saying their vaginas have emitted a strong odor after altering their diet.
The publication made clear 'keto crotch' has not been scientifically proven to occur in women's bodies after altering their diet.
Experts - **** - Odors - Change - Food
But experts have explained that it is possible for the ****'s odors to alter because of the change in food consumption.
OB/GYN Dr. Sherry A. Ross, women's health expert and author of She-ology,' explained in an interview with DailyMail.com why food can alter the odors emitted from the ****.
Odors - ****
'The saying “you are what you eat” holds true to odors coming from the ****,' she said.
On the keto diet, the body will enter into the metabolic state of ketosis where fats will be broken down for fuel instead of carbs. Ketosis then releases ketones — chemicals made in the liver — which can then cause an alteration in how someone's breath, poop, pee and vaginal discharge smell.
People - Keto - Breath - Diet - Smell
Previously, people have complained about keto breath while on the diet, which causes the smell of acetone (the main ingredient in nail polish remover) on the breath.
But the keto diet can also alter vaginal pH levels, which would then change the odor.
Dr - Ross - Number - Fats - Carbs
Dr. Ross explained how altering the number of fats and carbs in a woman's diet is not the only food change that could impact the ****.
