If your deodorant/leftover Jack D/BBQ Smoke doesn't get you through the day, your DIET might be  to blame.  Here are six foods that can make you stink . . .

1.  Red meat.  It's hard to digest and leaves residue behind in your  digestive tract, which mixes with bacteria and comes out in your sweat.   A study in 2006 found women were more attracted to guys who were  vegetarians, because their sweat smelled better. (I eat red with a beer every night. This sucks. - BT)

2.  Alcohol.  Most of it gets metabolized by your liver.  But a tiny  amount comes out in your sweat.  So you end up smelling like a stale  beer. (I guess drinking beer with red meat is off now. This sucks. - BT)

3.  Fish can make SOME people smell bad.  There's a metabolic disorder  called "fish odor syndrome" where it makes your sweat smell fishy.  It's  rare though, and you'd probably know if you had it.

4.  Broccoli and asparagus because they both have a lot of sulfur.   They're good for you though, so don't stop eating them.  If they make  you smell bad, try cooking them in boiling water instead of steaming them.  That should eliminate most of the smell.

5.  Garlic.  It has another sulfuric compound called allicin.  (Pronounced like the name Alison.)  It's not necessarily a bad smell though.  A few studies have found that some people are actually turned on by it.

6.  Coffee.  It might not make you smell worse on its own.  But  stimulants like caffeine make you sweat more.  So you could end up  sweating out more of those OTHER odors we just talked about. 

Guess I'll see how long can survive without eating from here on out. Wish me luck on the water diet. - BT
