Amino Acid Sweat!

Hey, i’ve recently added L-Leucine into my daily supplementation along with BCAA caps. I’ve noticed over the last few days that my sweat (underarm) is starting to smell like amino acids or ammonia.

Wtf?

Too much protein? Am i burning muscle?

My diet is pretty pretty low card, mod fat and high protein at the moment. any ideas?

many of us get this smell on the anabolic diet when protein is higher than fat. increase your fats a bit and lower protein and it will go away.

Cheers mate, just making sure i aint guna die!
