why do my sweaty feet smell like ammonia

Your body can only process a certain amount of food at each meal. Therefore, it may not be possible to avoid that ammonia smell during prolonged activities. The smell is common, for example, amongst marathon runners, who are engaging in continuous cardiovascular exercise for hours at a time. In that situation, it is advisable to consume sports drinks or other sources of energy during the activity to fuel your body (and especially your brain) and prevent your amino acids from being burned for energy.


The next time you smell ammonia, don t worry. It doesn t mean that your muscle tissue being broken down, and it doesn t mean that you re doomed to stink for the rest of eternity. Consume a nutritious meal immediately after exercising - a balance of lean protein and whole, unprocessed carbohydrates - and then increase your carbohydrate intake throughout the day, or add a small snack prior to your next workout.


An apple a day can help keep the ammonia smell away! I found this on a website where someone asked the same question.
For the past year or so I ve been suffering from rather severe excessive sweating of the feet. After 9 hours at work, the undersides of my toes and the ball of my foot on one side are white and puffy with a strong red line running next to the white area on the ball of one foot, which is sore especially when flexing.


My socks (always cotton) are soaked through and I change them straight away after work, only to find them soaked again when I go to bed later that evening. This happens in all shoes and boots. Also, the wet socks and insides of my shoes smell terribly of ammonia, which has ruined all my footwear and means I cannot remove my shoes in company.


This ammonia smell began some 2 or 3 months after the excessive sweating began. I am 29 years old, slim and get a fair bit of exercise at work due to its nature. My diet had not changed when all the above occurred, nor anything else notable. I drink a lot of fluids and do not eat too much protein or take any kind of supplements. Please help as the ammonia smell is even permeating through my work boots and becoming noticeable.
