(Women's Health) Online message boards are filled with women asking why the smell since turning the diet and exercise way up. "When odors are new, that can be a sign that your body is not functioning properly," says disordered-eating specialist Edward Tyson, M.D. Three common offenders:

Booze Odor
For extreme low-carbers. When ketones the by-product of a body burning gat instead of carbs, become too elevated in the blood, they can release an alcohol-like odor.

Bleach Odor
High-protein diets can produce a bleach or ammonia scent, a sing that muscle might be being used instead of fat for fuel, which can slow metabolism, making it harder to keep off weight.

Garlic Odor
Picky eaters or those trying to restrict their calorie intake may over-spice the select or bland things they regularly consume, which can cause a garlicky aroma.

Bottom Line
If you're catching weird whiffs, see your GP and, ideally, an R.D., who will help get your body running efficiently again.
