Output smells like what I ate.

Does anyone know if it's normal for your output to smell like what you ate or am I in trouble here my GI is currently away
It can be...when I eat fish, for example, my output smells of fish. There is also a distinct odour when I eat chicken, as well. The smell is also stronger when I have things like cheese and cauliflower, but that might be because there's also a lot of gas in my bag (gasbag!).

I find that fish is the smelliest - but it's also easy to digest and good for me, so I put up with the fishy small! Asparagus output is also rather on the nose.
