hi guys I have another question why does my urine have a strong stinky odor okay

we're going to talk about that now if you are not on a ketogenic program and

you're not doing intermittent fasting and you have that odor it could be a

urinary tract infection it could be liver damage it could be you're eating

the wrong foods you're not having enough vegetables okay but if you are on a keto

intermittent fasting program it could either be the ketones that are not being

burned coming out initially when you're adapting to ketosis there's this

transitional period of a key to adaptation and in that process you're

going to have more ketones coming out of your urine and sometimes is a bit

stronger than it should be but when you do it a little longer you'll be burning

those ketones because your system is more efficient and chances are you're

not going to be eating as much fat because your body is more efficient so

what's going to happen is you're going to have burn up more ketones and less

odor over time okay now if it's ammonia like

that would be the smell of you ever have one of those CDs that that you would

stick in your car or some type of CD player and you take the plastic off to

smell that plastic kind of ammonia type smells like a chemically type smell now

this usually is too much protein okay so what are you going to do to kind of

counter this kind of nasty smell there's a couple things number one you want to

support the liver with certain types of vegetables for example you want to do

more beet tops in your salad a real good one would be dandelion greens okay you
