Cons Of High-protein Diets

So your buddy tells you he’s starving and has a case of hunger breath. After your workout, you guys head to lunch. He orders a cheeseburger deluxe platter, no bun, extra cheese, no fries. He explains the carbs are totally bad for him and that he's on a high-protein diet. Whether it's the Atkins Diet, Zone Diet, The South Beach Diet, Meat-Mania, Proteinopia or whatever fancy name they call that high-protein diet he's on, it's doing more harm than good. The calling card of high-protein diets is that your body burns fat for energy and that, in turn, will result in weight loss. Prolonged consumption of high protein sends the body into a state of ketosis. That’s top of the list of cons of high-protein diets. Ketosis occurs when the liver converts fats into fatty acids for use as energy and the by-product, ketones. Ketones increase the acidity of the blood and can be detected in the urine. In extreme cases of starvation or fasting, the body undergoes gluconeogenesis, which is the production of glucose from sources other than carbohydrates, primarily protein. Possible Kidney Damage High-protein diets place a lot of stress on the kidneys. The initial weight loss on high-protein diets i Continue reading >>

    So I went through 250mg of crystal from thursday starting around noon, until this morning where I parachuted a final dose of 50mg. (Saturday)
    I didn't sleep thursday night, but I did lay in bed for about 6 hours, and I slept 4 hours last night + lay in bed for a bit as well.
    So I'm coming down now, and REAK like ammonia. I already noticed this yesterday, but it's even worse today. I basically smell like fucking cat piss. I know this is caused by ketosis breakdown of protein (muscle) because I have not been eating regularly/ lack of sleep. Basically, my body is breaking down muscle to use as fuel right now, and that leads to a massive increase of ammonia in me (maybe not actual ammonia, but rather the chemical that makes piss smell kinda like ammonia), hence the nasty fucking smells. Or someshit like that, you guys can google it.
    But today, I tried my best to eat and drink properly again. I had a few glasses of V8 veggie juice, 2 apples, a piece of chicken, like 6 bottles of water, some rice, and a bunch of whole wheat crackers. Most of that was in the past few hours, and I am already beginning to feel a lot better, but I still smell and taste ammonia pretty damn prominanetely. I've taken like 8 showers since yesterday as well, it almost burns my nose and mouth a little bit when I breath, that is how fucking nasty this shit smells.
    Anyways, just looking for info from other people that have experienced this side effect in the past, how long does it generally takes to return back to baseline smell after you stop the meth and start getting normal sleep and eating a proper diet again?

    I did meth for 7 years, including both ice and "bathtub crank", and I never ever noticed me or anyone else smelling like ammonia, other than after a cook. Maybe you should reevaluate your source.
    You'll be back to normal by tomorrow. You should really eat and drink plenty of water when you're on it even if you don't want to, just figure out stuff you can stand to eat on it. For me it was always cereal.

    Coming off heroin gives me a weird smell. It's been years since I did crank, but I would guess maybe it's not ketosis but just the meth ingredients coming out of your pores? Like when someone had too much alcohol, or garlic and you can smell it coming off them? The meth you did might've had a high ammonia concentration?
