    Probably ketones in your urine.



    If you do a web search on something like "ketosis asparagus smell" you'll find you're not alone.

    Funnily enough, I noticed this same thing a few days ago, so you're not alone. We can be the founding members of the Stinky Pee club...;)

    Not like cat pee???? That is a sign of LS.

    Mine is definitely more cat pee than asparagus pee, lately.



    Goody, I get to check off yet another sign of leptin sensitivity, and yet not be leptin sensitive...LOL

    This comes/goes for me.... more so when I stick to the 3 meals - even when I could easily skip lunch - but I know I need the 3 meals... not sure I'll always be that way - but for now that's what it is....
     
  8. I've had it for a while but every now and then it just disappears. I'm going to watch it based on meals. I try for two meals because it seems to suit me better but I am going to start sniffing on those three meal days!

    Wow, thanks! It sounds like it could be a good thing! ketosis would be good....LS would be good...and I have been very strict of late...(my B'day was celebrated, but not with a trace of sugar!)

    How do you know you are not LS? You just posted that you were losing weight or a size or so anyway. You become LS, then you start losing weight. You have to get the leptin going in the right direction first then amazing things start to happen. That is all part of the process. How many signs do you have? You might be surprised.

    I thought the deal was that if you were obese, you couldn't be leptin sensitive? It's quite possible I somehow misinterpreted that. :)



    signs I have:



    hair and nails greatly improved and growing super fast

    feet used to be super rough / dry all the time, are now smooth as a baby's backside

    skin is clearer, with better coloring

    generally calmer, less prone to anxiety attacks

    thinking far more clearly (though my posts don't always show it...haha)

    libido has returned from a very long hiatus

    no carb cravings - haven't TRULY craved much of anything besides shrimp and steak for months now

    can easily get by on two meals a day most days

    usually sleep very well now (used to wake up a lot in the night, tossing and turning)

    wake up before alarm most days, able to get up and get going with much more ease than previously

    losing weight, though not rapidly by any means

    I think you misinterpreted that. Go back and read the signs blog. You have so many of them I would believe your leptin is starting to do it's job. Geo was just like you with the signs and she was on the right track and started to lose weight. I would say go for the post leptin way and see what happens. Big meal at dinner, work out with HIIT at the right time if possible. If you go into reverse, just start again. I'm tellin' ya, you have enough of the signs girl!;)



    Do reread both pre and post LRx blogs and tell me you are not rockin' it!!!!!

    Wahay! I'll check them out again tonight between work and the webinar...:D

    I think there was also something that if you had the cat pee smelling urine that you had to up your B vit. Look for that too. Not sure if it is buried in the monster thread or?? Good luck. I'm truly hoping you are becoming LS. This would be a great boost for your dh too now that he knows he has a problem and can fix it.

    Just googling around I found there's:



    sweaty feet odor, maple syrup odor, mousy odor, and boiled cabbage odor, as well as cat's urine odor.



    Phew!



    According to the State of California's Department of Public Health, cat's urine odor is indicative of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarylCoAlyase deficiency. But I guess that depends on what one takes cat's urine to smell like. Probably depends on the cat. :)

    And whether the cat's following an Epi-Paleo template, clearly...;)
