Are there unwanted side effects to eating "Right"?

We all know by now that many medications have bad side effects. "If in excess of 4 hours---------etc..

What about diet?

No!!! I'm not talking about the effects of Shoney's all you can eat buffet.  If you eat regularly at An "all you can eat" diner, you know very well the possible side effects.

What I'm refering too are those little side effects that you may not be aware of. 

For Example:

Asparagus is the ultimate springtime vegetable. But some of us find our urine smells strange after we eat it. According to "The Science of Good Food," "Our bodies metabolize asparagusic acid into methyl mercaptan, a chemical that closely resembles skunk spray. About 40 percent of the population claim to be immune to the effect, although it is now believed to be more common." Recent research suggests, though, that genetics determine which people are able to detect the odor, which is why some of us don't notice a change in our urine's smell after enjoying asparagus.
So, if you are having trouble getting a second date, it might be because of something you ate.
Extra Strong Garlic chicken anyone?
Or, if you really hate your dentist, What should you eat just before your next appointment?
Yes! there can be many side effects to our diet.
What do you suggest for a purpose driven diet?
Let's hear your suggestions. And/Or funny diet stories.

"Ewww! What is that smell?"

I once had a dentist that was a sadist. In the military, you do not get to choose a dentist or doctor. But once you see one, you usually see the same one until one of you are reassigned. He used to do things like heat up a dental insturment and place it on a filling and ask if it hurt. Next he would place a hunk of ice on the filling and ask the same question. Procedures that he could defend when ask, but ones that I have never, before or after be subjected too. So, just before an appointment I went to the NCO club and ate hard boiled eggs and drank Falstaff beer. That quickly built up a good supply of gas. Every time he bent over to poke around in my mouth I would emit a rather forceful burp. The next time I went to that clinic , lo and behold, I had a different dentist.
Pru.... you really need to get out more.
I've heard something about men eating pineapple. Is it an urban legend? I don't know.
Don't know about urban legend, but I eat pineapple.

My wife says I might need to eat more.
If I feed my dog left over meat, he has to sleep outside. Should I suggest that to Dee?
I eat pineapple, and so far I haven't climbed a single pineapple tree.
Ha ha ha ha.

I haven't heard that term for it in a long time.
I once told my therapist about my plot to get even with my first husband by feeding the kids a bunch of legumes laced with onion soup mix and send them packing in their Dad's car, all four of them in the dead of winter for that 5 hour trip to CT.

Any body wanna tangle with me now?
Ask yourself this, Rya feeling lucky? Hunh?
Being on a low-sodium, low-fat, low-cholesterol diet means I have a very plain, simple diet. One that does not involve asparagus, turnips, rutabagas, Jerusalem artichokes, etc.
Ah Lowelll I am so sorry for you. What do aspatagus, turnups, rutabagos have to do with Morals?
Robbie - Morels should be dredged in beaten egg & seasoned flour and then chicken-fried.

Same thing goes for Moray Eels.
