noun; compounding
a foul-smelling breath analogous to rotten egg from someone on low-carbohydrate/ high-protein diet. Since Atkins diet is a very well-know diet regime that is low in carbohydrates and high in protein, the name Atkins can be used to represent all high-protein diet.
If you eat too much protein, you’ll get an Atkins-breath.
Etymology : Atkins-breath. Compounding of Atkins + breath
