It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Eric Berg answers another question: Why does my urine have a strong stinky odor? It could be UTI, liver damage or simply eating the wrong foods or not enough vegetables. However if you are on a keto diet, this can come about when your body is switching over to burning ketones and will have more ketones coming out of your system. Over time this will decrease as the body uses more ketones. If it's the smell of ammonia or chemicals, it would be from too much protein. To counter-act this you want to support the liver with certain vegetables such beet tops or dandelion greens. Also be sure you have enough fluids throughout the day. Adjust your protein to make a moderate amount each day. Lastly chlorophyll will help to counter-act the smell and can be found in things such as wheat grass.

Low Carb Diets And Stinky Urine

Experiencing unusual smelling urine or even foul smelling urine is a common issue for those on low carb diets. Diets like the Atkins Diet, South Beach Diet, Paleo Diet and the Ketogenic Diet can cause smelly urine for several different reasons. High Protein Diets Cause Stinky Urine Low carb diets are usually high in protein. Consuming all that extra protein makes your liver work harder, and ammonia is a by-product of that. Ammonia is toxic to the body, so the liver converts it to urea. It is then expelled from the body in urine. If you have very high concentrations of ammonia, you might even be able to smell it in your urine. If ammonia levels in your urine are high enough that you can easily smell them, your body is probably also releasing ammonia through your breath and sweat as well. This could put you in the unfortunate position of battling stinky urine, body odor and bad breath all at once. High Protein Diets Are Often High In Sulfur Lots of foods that are high in protein also happen to be high in sulfur, which is known to cause stinky urine. Red meat, poultry, eggs, fish and nuts all have high sulfur content. On top of that, many vegetables low carb diets allow contain high l Continue reading >>

    Not a very lady-like subject, but need to ask anyway. I notice during induction (probably in week 2) that my urine started to have a horrible smell. I thought I read somewhere that that is a sign of ketosis--is it? I've looked for test sticks at Meijer, K-mart, and the grocery store but can't find them anywhere. I do notice that I drop pounds when the smell is there--what do you think? Is that my indicator of ketosis? Thanks!

    I've noticed the same thing. And that constant metallic taste in my mouth lets me know I'm in ketosis, too.
    The strips are usually back with the pharmacist, not out on the shelves. So you just have to ask for ketone testing strips. (I guess they're expensive enough and the box is small enough that they could easily be shoplifted.)
    If you do get the strips, don't worry about the shade of pink to purple--even the slightest pink signals ketosis. I was very happy to see mine change from being beige for a few days to pink .

    In Canada, the stix are with the supplies for diabetics. They used to be behind the pharmacy counter but are now out on the shelves in Shoppers' Drug Marts. They cost about $7.50 Canandian. I hear that Wal-Mart in the US has them. The most common brand name is Ketostix by Bayer.
    And the interesting odour is less expensive. If you are losing, why bother with the stix?

Initially you'll be interested to see your body start producing ketone bodies it might not be utilizing and you can monitor this with these strips. Then still later you can monitor ketone bodies not utilized, which may indicate either you've stopped producing them or perhaps you've adapted to utilizing this energy source. It's not imperitive, but when your'e starting out and signals ushering you into deeper phases are always welcomed. Fear and not knowing can put a halt to motivation and success. It's like having a business plan. Analysis and understanding of the metrics never hurt any business. To me same reliability as ReliOn Amazon only carries Ketostix. Not sure about the other rebranded one's masquerading as ketostix, because I've not tried or hear the reviews. http://amzn.to/2rtF5f4 YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp9O...

All The Things That Make Your Pee Smell Weird, And Why

Ever settle into the restroom to do your business and, amid the calming sound of your yellow stream, notice an awful smell? You know what your pee should smell like -- you experience it anywhere from six to eight times a day -- so an unfamiliar scent might be a sign that something is awry; a warning message flowing from your body to the toilet. Or it could just be something you ate. It turns out there are lots of things that affect the smell of your pee. How dehydrated you are can not only change its color, but also create a much more pungent smell, as can dietary choices and medical conditions. Here are the biggest culprits of why you're stinking up the toilet bowl. If you notice it's a common occurrence, definitely see your doctor. And in the meantime, invest in some Poo-Pourri. Drinking too much coffee If there is such a thing, that is. Overconsumption of coffee not only makes you wired; it could make your urine smell like a venti latte. Coffee contains caffeol, the fragrant oil you smell after it's brewed, which you smell again when you pee it out, especially if you've downed a lot of it. Coffee is also a diuretic, which doesn't help things. "Too much coffee will make your urin Continue reading >>

Is Being In Ketosis Safe And What Are The Potential Side Effects

Sign up for updates to receive one week FREE of my low carb and gluten free meal plans: CHECK OUT SOME OF MY OTHER FAVORITE LOW CARB KETO RESOURCES: Is being in ketosis safe? Some people think that ketosis is extremely dangerous. However, they might be confusing ketosis with ketoacidosis, which is completely different. While ketoacidosis is a serious condition caused by uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a natural metabolic state. In fact, ketosis and ketogenic diets have been studied extensively and shown to have major benefits for weight loss (1, 2). Ketogenic diets have also been shown to have therapeutic effects in epilepsy, type 2 diabetes and several other chronic conditions (3, 4, 5, 6). Ketosis is generally considered to be safe for most people. However, it may lead to a few side effects, especially in the beginning. An Overview of Ketosis First, it’s necessary to understand what ketosis is. Ketosis is a natural part of metabolism. It happens either when carbohydrate intake is very low (such as on a ketogenic diet), or when you haven’t eaten for a long time. Both of these lead to reduced insulin levels, which causes a lot of fat to be released from your fat cells. When t Continue reading >>

    I started keto about a month ago and this has never happened before - my pee started to get dark yellow and smells surprisingly funky - is that good? Is that bad?
    If it's bad, what do I change to stop it?

  2. guldilox

    You're probably both dehydrated and peeing out ketones. It is entirely possible it is bad, yes, but I am not a doctor and cannot make that diagnosis.
    Excretion of water soluble vitamins can also affect urine, most immediately noticeable would probably be excess B vitamins.
    Drink more water. Like, a lot more. And if it really doesn't change, then consult someone more professional than I.
