Probably okay...: Some are more health-conscious than others, but even overdone with it. This is the normal pattern/spectrum of human behaviors. As to urine smell in relation to possible food/beverage consumption, remember: certain urine odor is normal, but personally unique and varying with what we eat or drink. So, it's okay as long as voiding comfortably and having a normal urinalysis. If still in doubt, ask doc.
