Bad breath while dieting
I am on a protein diet at the moment. For the past 7 weeks I have bad breath. I know it's from dieting, it happened before while I'm on a diet.

What can I do, besides brushing teeth and floss?

Friend, I suppose the most obvious solution would be to stop dieting:-). The smell on your breath might be due to ketones, but it might also be to something else. The best would probably to try to drink water regularly (ie a glass an hour). Good luck.
