Hey Si - I've never had this trouble but maybe it's a guy thing?
Especially on induction I just have the killer breath!
How are you doing on this plan?
I need to sign off now - but I'll check back tomorrow....let us know how you have done in trying to kick start further weight loss. Usually men especially do very well on Atkins, but as you can see here on the board - many of us women are doing great as well!
Good Luck.

I know some folks complain about urine being stronger but not shoulder/armpit smell. Did you check out the Atkins website ? Interesting... hmmm.

How do you like being on atkins ?

Si,

I would guess that it is ammonia coming from your skin. Are you eating A LOT of protein? Excess protein produces ammonia in the breath and sweat... and well, pretty much any bodily secretion

Hence the weird odor. That's my theory as to the pool smell. Like chlorine but slightly different...

You might want to see your doctor about this. Your body is trying to tell you something. There are a lot of reasons this could be happening. Some are normal, and some aren't.
