    I've been meaning to post this for a while.

    I've noticed that since being mainly in ketosis, my armpits seem to smell remarkably like chip fat.:wideyed:

    I assume that this is because my blood stream is full of fats, and I'm not sweating out any sugars that feed the usual armpit bacteria, but who knows?

    Is it just me?:woot:

    No, it's not just you, more like unwashed gym clothes-I've bought about 3 different deodorants.
