    I'm wondering how people are coping with the stinky smell of ketosis. I'm on a ketogenic low-carb diet -- usually 60g of net carbs or less. I've tested myself with ketostix several times and I can smell the rancid urine smell when I pee.
    The problem here is that my toilet doesn't seem to flush completely and the ketogenic smell stays in the bathroom and even leaks to the living room. My super came in to my apartment once and asked what that smell is, whether I'm flushing my toilet.
    I've been using Lysol before I leave to air out the bathroom but that doesn't seem to be enough. Now, I'm using air fresheners, fragrance refills, and toilet bowl cleaners but I can still smell it when I enter my apartment. Not as bad but the smell is unmistakable.
    How do people deal with this ketogenic smell? It's good that I'm ketogenic. But I can do without the smell.

    my daily carbs is less than 20 grams, and the acetone in my breath is so strong, i swear i can knock out flies LOL
    Not just that, my sweat has a strange smell too.
    I guess we just have to get used to it?
    At least now i know how Paleolithic Cavemen used to smell like lol

    A healthy person on a ketogenic diet, should only be slightly in ketosis according to the keto-sticks. After a couple weeks in ketosis, you should not be having a problem with bad breath or urine. 60g carbs a day is more than enough one should be out of ketosis.
    My guess is you have some other problem. Taking an activated charcoal tablet a day should help with the odor.
