5 Foods That Can Make You Smell Bad & How To Fix It

Have you ever inched away from that person sitting next to you emitting a less-than-pleasant odor? What would you do if we told you that some foods might make you into that person? Yikes. Unfortunately, some of the foods that can bring on the stink are really good for you. But don’t worry: We have not only the foods to watch out for, but also expert advice on how to eat them without repelling your friends and coworkers. EGGS Eggs are a healthy eater’s friend. They’re versatile, inexpensive and loaded with good nutrition. But they aren’t winning any awards for smelling good. Their familiar unpleasant smell comes from sulfur, and it can be contagious, registered dietician nutritionist Maggie Moon, author of the MIND diet book, tells Clean Plates. And it isn’t unique to eggs; other sulfur-containing foods include onions, garlic, and cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. Eliminating them isn’t a good idea since they’re some of the most nutritious foods you can eat. Instead, watch your portion sizes if you’re concerned about the smell, says Dr. Lisa Ashe, medical director at BeWell Medicine. She recommends sticking with a typical serving of c Continue reading >>

    Hi CT,
    I'm on a low carb diet and I just added 20 minutes of fasted carido in the morning (fast walking on an incline). I take 10 gram of BCAA when I wake up, just before the cardio.
    By the end of the cardio session, I can smell an ammonia odor or it can even smell like cat pee. I did search on google and found it may be caused by Amico Acid and protein breakdown or the low carb diet.
    In any case, I want to know if it's happening because I'm in a catabolic state and if my body is breaking down my muscle for energy. It never happen with weight lifting, in the evening.
    Thanks,

    Alex

    You are probably in a catabolic state. Any diet that is deficient in energetic nutrients (carbs or fat) can become catabolic if a lot of training is being performed.

    How is your fat intake? A lot of people who use a low carbs diet consume too little fat. Since they lack a dietary energy source, they will often breakdown amino acids for energy.

    Around 2800-3000 calorie a day, can be a little bit more or less. I did not count carbs and calorie from veggie (broccoli and spinach)
    Fat: 204 gram (60% of cal)
    Protein: 268 gram (36% of cal) (220 gram from protein and 50 gram from BCAA and I did count 0 calorie from BCAA)
    Carbs: 5 gram (3% of cal)
    I only added cardio this week, hopefully not much harm has been done.

    The only thing I drink before/while doing the cardio session in the morning is 10 gram of BCAA in 16 once of water

6 Weird Signs Your Body Odor Isn't Normal & What To Do About It

There are a multitude of things that can affect the smell of your nether regions — your period, infections, poor hygiene. The list goes on and on. And while a lot of smells are totally normal, there are definitely some that are worth checking out. These are the more, well, shocking smells that are usually accompanied by discharge. According to Samantha Lefave on RedBookMag.com, "Having discharge alone is normal, yes. But having it come out clumpy or smelling like a trip to the raw fish market is not good, and it could mean a yeast infection, sexually transmitted infection (STI), or even chlamydia. As soon as you notice these symptoms, get to your gyno. Depending on your diagnosis, you'll definitely need a course of treatment." The sooner you get yourself checked out, the better. 5. Your Pee Is Super Stinky No one ever said pee smelled good, but it really shouldn't smell bad, either. As Lefave noted, "Normally urine is scent-less, or if it has a scent, it's usually a very subtle, ammonia-like smell ... So if you get a big whiff without even trying — and it's accompanied by pain, typically a burning sensation, when you pee — schedule a gyno visit. You could have a urinary tract Continue reading >>

    Hello
    For the last couple weeks I have been doing my best to stay under 50g daily. With a few weekend 20% exceptions, I have been fairly successful, and I feel great!
    My goal is to be in the single digit body fat range, and once I am there I will bump up the carb intake (more veggies, right now I eat meat + fat almost exclusively) for maintenance.
    My question is this - Has anyone noticed some HORRIBLE body odor? In particularly the more private regions?
    I noticed this a while ago. It comes and goes, but when its bad, its really bad. Is this just toxins exiting my body? Will it eventually go away? I have been reading many people's stories on how they don't smell, and have dropped deodorant use all together. I would really like to try this approach, just not sure how much longer until it happens.
    Thanks!

    I've been told the seeds' taste is different in a non-pleasant way. If I get fruit (pineapple in particular) it gets better.

    Yes, doghead - when I am dropping fat my face breaks out and I have a tendency not to smell so good. It'll pass.
