Q.

New diet bad breath

Dear doc. Please give your advice. I have recently started a new diet, a kilojoule controlled diet, and since then, my breath has been bad. My mouth is also constantly dry. I was wondering whether it could be caused by the artificial sweetener i am using on my cereal in the morning? I have never before had a problem with bad breath. Thanks
