Why does the lady on the treadmill next to me smell like maple syrup?
I’m pretty sure that’s what the angry, fierce speed walker on the treadmill next to me was thinking last night. She probably thought to herself, “dangle some pancakes drenched in maple syrup in front of her. I bet she can really run then!”
So why do I smell like a delicious pancake breakfast? I’ve been taking fenugreek to increase my milk production for my 2-month-old daughter. The girl can eat! One of the lovely side effects of fenugreek is your sweat and baby smells like maple syrup.
It really is a lovely side effect. I’ve been paranoid this entire post birth period that I smelled like milk soaked nursing pads, only to discover I smell like an IHOP restaurant.
So next time the fatty, fat, fatso on the treadmill smells like breakfast, realize she may be taking fenugreek and not be porky the pig. And be thankful she doesn’t smell like a sweat factory, unlike captain upper body on the other side of you!
