A couple of months ago I started eminating an ammonia smell after working out or playing a simple game of hockey. I've had it before but always thought it was part of sweating in general. However the stank became that bad I could empty the clubhouse of all people, simply by entering. I went to see my doctor about it, but he concluded there was nothing wrong with me though it may had something to do with my diet. He suggested eating more high carb food. I've increased my daily intake of pasta and spuds. It seemed to work for a while, but last night I was in the middle of an aerobic class when that smell returned. It was so foul I nearly passed out. The dietician at the club suggested I should eat more food high in protein. Though I'm more inclined to follow what my doctor suggested I did do a google search and found these two suggestions. Either increase carbs or protein intake (or may be both?). I drink about a 3/4 liter of water in a 1 hour excercise and about 3 liters of water + tea a day regardless. Someone else had this issue and more importantly how did you manage to get rid of it? It has cost me several shirts because I couldn't get the smell out. I have a tournament this afternoon and am already worried about the BBQ tonight. I'm either keeping my shirt on or sneaking into the shower for a quick wash. The first option will cause the flies to fall dead from the skies, the second one will seduce my teammates into calling me a closeted footballer for taking a shower after a game and taunt me the rest of the season. Increase carbs or proteins, both? Or did something else do the trick?
