Don’t Want To Stink? Avoid These Foods

You may be scared to go to social gatherings, because your body stinks and you avoid important gatherings, you may actually love. You might have blamed your stinks to your genes, excess use of deodorants, use of cheap perfumes, or the biology of your body. But, the actual culprit may be the foods you love to eat. If you eat these foods, it is time to give a thought of reducing their intake and consuming other healthy foods. Try to eat the foods that may be the cause of your body odor in moderation.

The foods that may cause body odor includes (but not the only foods to cause stink, because there are other foods too) tobacco, red meat, alcohol, spicy foods, dairy products, junk foods, low carbohydrate diet etc.

  • Tobacco: we all know that smokers stinks. When a person smokes, some chemicals reach sweat glands and release odor that is distinct to smokers. The distinct smoker’s smell is there everywhere in the smoker, including home, clothes, bed etc. as well as whole body. So, avoid smoking for stink, if not for health.
  • Red meat: red meat require quite an effort by human body to digest. Eating excess meat and high protein food may cause body to stink. Moderation is the key in case of red meat.
  • Alcohol: if anyone consumes alcohol, it is removed mainly by digestion, but also without digestion (approximately 10% of consumed alcohol) it is removed directly via urine, respiratory route (breath), and sweat. Hence the whole body smells of alcohol. So, decide how much you should drink.
  • Spicy foods: there are several spices with strong odor such as garlic, onion, and most of the spices, which are rich in sulfur. Make sure you eat spices in moderation, if you do not want to stink.
  • Dairy products: they are rich in protein and have typical odor. Cheese and other dairy products have typical smell and excess eating of these products may make you stink too.
  • Junk foods: it is another culprit in causing body odor, so consume it if you must in moderation.
  • Low carbohydrate diet: diet low in carbohydrate is usually rich in protein, which makes it hard to digest. Diet low in carbohydrate leads to excess sweat and production of a chemical ketone, which is released through sweat and body stinks. So, avoid low carbohydrate diet, unless you are suffering from diabetes. Even if you are suffering from diabetes, eat well balanced diet with adequate carbohydrates.

There is a saying, “you become what you eat”, hence, be careful what you eat, especially if you have problem of body odor. Be selective, but at the same time be smart to eat well balanced diet.
