Sugar Puffs

Chaps,
 
Since being on a bulk diet my urine has started to smell like sugar puffs. lol I know that is a weird statment.
 
Does anyone know why?

    my urine is normally quite clear but when i take a B-Complex vitamin is turns a dark yellow to suggest dehydration but im still drinking at least 5 lts a day.

    If your hitting your water target then id say something in your diet

    Sugar in the urine is actually a sign of diabetes. Careful.
    Tbh I've not had sugar puffs in years so I'm not sure how they smell- sweet I guess?

    Maybe dehydration?  Thus making your urine more concentrated which may attribute to the smell.

    The colour is not due to dehydration, it is due to Vit B2 (Riboflavin) whereby any excess is excreted in the urine and gives it that fluorescent colour.

    Cheers for the info...

    Its not dehydration as I aim to drink around a gallon of water a day.

    Ive read something about it being excess protein which hasnt been absorbed by the body?

    I suppose this is a possibility with me being on a high protein diet?

    Possibly.
    Excess protein, after being broken down into amino acids is converted to ammonia in the liver IIRC. Ammonia is toxic to the body, and is excreted in urea/uric acid in the urine.
    The urea smells quite strong, so it could be this.

    X2 it happened to me once - it reaks. How much protein have you been consuming? maybe ou could cut it back and see if that helps 
     
    the only other disclaimer is that you have nt been eating lots of asparagus (sp?)
