Strong smelling urine is usually a sign that you are dehydrated.  I've never had my urine smell like food other than onions and garlic.  They seem to just make the whole body smell.

I really don't know what to say....just wanted to participate in this thread.

My urine smells like what I've been eating.....but only when I drink my own pee!!! LOL!

I have, honestly, never heard of this before. I would suggest drinking more water. As was said earlier, it may be dehydration that is causing the strong smell.

HAHA YES! Depends on the food but remember most of our intestine is bypassed, sometimes some food moves through really quick =)

LOOK... SALAD!
LOOK... NUTS!

It's not often, just every once and a while. It's one of those inside conversations only post-op DSers usually have =)

I mean, it all makes perfect sense.

But it's not something I just think of. Now I'll always know, Bev. Thanks. Thanks a lot. ;)

Is it good to be in the ketosis state?  doesn't it mean you body is burning fat?
