Summertime has just arrived and that means temperatures are on the rise. Needless to say, people are sweating a little bit more than normal. If you are someone that sweats a lot, do everyone a favor and stay away from these body odor causing foods.
Garlic. Everybody knows about this one. This is biggest anti-kissing food ever. Chewing the smelly food breaks it down into allicin. The allicin then releases a sulfur-compound that comes out in your breath, sweat, and urine.
Onion. Much like garlic, onion is also broken down into a sulfur-compound that stink up your breath, sweat and urine. Cruciferous vegetables. Veggies such as cabbage, broccoli, and brussel sprouts also can give you a case of the sulfur stink. Just because they produce an odor doesn’t mean you should stop eating these nutrient rich foods!
Meat. A study asked women to smell samples of men’s B.O. after eating two weeks of a meat based diet versus a vegetarian diet. Not surprisingly, the women found the vegetarian eater’s smell more pleasant. The B.O. of the men eating meat was very intense and not very attractive.
Alcohol. Compounds produced as your body breaks down alcohol can exit through your breath and your sweat. Have you ever had anyone breathe on you after they have been drinking? If so, you know it is cringe-worthy.
Fish. It can be hard break down certain proteins. When this certain protein builds up, the fishy smell can be secreted through urine, breath, and sweat.
Asparagus. You may know this veggie because it is famous for dramatically changing the smell of your pee. While not everyone smells it, a lot of people do. It happens when your body breaks down the veggie and pees it outs.
So if you are a stinky person in general, maybe steering clear of these foods would be a good idea…
