  • Ketosis urine smell

    I've noticed for a while now that my urine smells different . . . i heard it would smell like ammonia? Mine smells like plastic wrap, like when you open a new CD and take the plastic off, you get that smell . . its fairly strong, and has only started happening since going primal, is it safe to assume i am in ketosis?

    Stop eating Lady Ga-Ga CDs?

    99.99% its ketosis if you have been eating ketosis levels of carbs. If you have not been eating that level of carbs, you might have a problem.

      Starting 2 weeks ago i dropped down to 100g of carbs a day, then ~5 days later i droped to under 50g per day. So i do believe i have been eating a ketosis level of carbs

        Oh yeah, that is definitely around the amount of time it would take to fully start transitioning in. I"m personally not in ketosis nor do I plan on doing so, but you definitely fit the bill. In some people their urine smells for as long as they are in ketosis and for others it goes away after about two weeks.

        Personally, I wouldn't worry about it if I was you.

                  Yeah, I got the same "plastic smell" too in my urine. Ketostix say i'm ketotic. Been this way for the last few days. I go on and off this, alternating weeks. Dunno why...

                      Asparagus will definitely make you smell different, it's startling if you've forgotten you ate asparagus.

                        finally, somewhere i can share my bathroom stories! i think my husband has gotten a bit tired of hearing about 'em. ha! i'm about 29-43g carbs a day and have noticed that my urine is pretty strong. i also feel a bit more energy lately. hmmm...maybe it's fat burnin' time ;-) p.s. ketosis isn't anything to be worried about despite what cw says. have fun!!!

                            no worries, you'll just slow down your progress. stay positive, i'm almost 100% sure that's what's going on

                              Asparagus will get your urine a strong pungent smell. Took me a while to track that one down since it would last 3-4 pees. My wife didn't believe me until she took a whiff...
                              During breakfast today, Abby asks, "How would this juicy, fat, sweet blackberry taste on top of my bacon?" I said it would taste BerrySwine...;-P
