Certain vegetables like onions, garlic and cabbage contain lots of Sulfur, also eggs contain a lot, too. Your body needs Sulfur in your diet; it is essential for the metabolism of many biomolecules. If you eat more than your body needs in a short time, not all will be assimilated. Thus, Sulfur-containing molecules will be released from the body.

Sulfur-containing molecules tend to stink. If you eat a lot of garlic, which contains the chemical diallyl disulfide, your body won't be able to assimilate all the sulfur and, in this case, some of the chemical will be exuded from your skin (in sweat). (Nice, 'cuz it keeps mosquitos away.)

What you are experiencing is the metabolic waste of certain bacteria in your gut. They "eat" the Sulfur-containing molecules that you ingested in your food and release Hydrogen Sulfide (gas) as a waste product. (Can be nice, 'cuz it keeps people away.)

If it goes away after a day or two, it's nothing to worry about. If it's a big problem for you, try to remember what you ate (think stinky) and try to avoid it.
