Ha! Yeah for sure. I didn't mean that I didn't stink after working out! I smell awful after working out. But I mean that I think I smell ok after a good sweat because I don't smell too bad after a workout...meaning later during the day. Yes, I would also consider the bacteria that causes BO to be a toxin. Is that a misnomer? :)

Interesting, because my experience is totally the opposite. I am also a big sweater -- but I still stink pretty good after a good workout & sweating heavily.

I personally don't think it has to do with eating. The odor is actually caused by bacteria, not toxins, altho I suppose you could consider bacteria to be a toxin.

I don't think I smell that bad normally, but after I exercise, I definitely stink.

Hi all! From my own experience I can say that when you eat clean your body odor changes. Also, I think that exercise has a lot to do with it, especiall how much you sweat. I myself am a SWEATER! And I began to notice that when I sweat more I smelt less during the day. This may be because I was moving toxins through my pores through sweating. Anyway, eating clean and sweating like a pig have allowed me not to wear any deodorant (under any circumstances) for over 4 years now. I would never go back. A clean person's body odor smells good to me. My husband has never worn deodorant in his life! I love the way people smell when they are healthy. I recommend it. Nothing attracts people like real pheremones! emoticon

I just switched to Tom's natural deodorant, but I'm not a fan of it at all because it doesn't seem as strong to me as my old deodorant. Next time I'm at the health food store i will definitely get the crystal kind - I've seen it before but had never heard any reviews of it until now. Thanks for the tip!

You know, I think it is true. I was feeling very self-conscious for quite some time about underarm odor. The only thing that helped was using the Rx strength, but I was even having to use it twice as often as recommended. However, once I started eating healthier my need for deodorant has decreased dramatically. I am back to using regular brands, and have skipped it entirely a few times and wasn't too bad at all. I think there is definitely something to it.

The one I get is in a purple type container and like the other person said you just run a little water over it and apply. It works too if you get foot odor, or for cleavage sweat. The name is Crystal stick. They also make a roll on type that already has the liquid in it, but me and some friend s don't think it works nearly as well as the actual crystal. plus there is no Aluminum Chloride in it which has been linked to everything from Alzheimer's, to tumors. And it lasts much longer than traditional so it is probably better for the environment too.

It may have to do with hormones too, my 10 year old daughter stinks! When she is having a growth spurt in the breast department, her BO is really bad. She eats really clean as many preservatives affect her moods, so I am really strict with what she eats.

Health food store or a store that has health foods! It's in a container like deoderant, only it's a crystal, you put a little water on it rub it on your underarm, and you're good to go!!

I am intrigued by this salt crystal thing. I have never heard of it. Where exactly would you go to get one of these? What exactly do they look like? Anyone have any web links so I can see it?

I use the salt crystal kind-you run water over it and apply. I would never go back. Beside the fact that it is better for your body, it is the only one that i don't 'smell' with. I have always had problems, I tried mens, rx strength, everything, and this is the only one that i don't notice any odor with

I have to add that my husband has never used any, he will be 58yrs old this year. I did not know that he never used any deodorant until after we moved in with each other! I never noticed him having an odor. Infact just this weekend we were hard at work in my daughters house ripping up carpet and my daughter asked her dad what he was wearing, she could not believe that he had nothing on, not even aftershave! As far as food goes, we are trying to be healthy but we are not true clean eaters.
Oh and by the way, I was outside of the house, on the driveway rolling up the carpet and putting duck tape around it.............I could smell myself over the underarm deodorant!! LOL

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

I use Nature's care Organics Fruit Blend Mandarin Orange Patchouli Deodorant with NO Aluminum, Paraben-Free hypo-allergenic & reidue-free

I personally notice its not as strong as a name brand deordorant but i like it.

I dont always put on deordorant *shrugs* doesnt bother me how my pits smell....the family has a differ opinion......yup, wayyyyy TMI LOL!

Hope this helps

If I use a deoderant it is a healthy one. I was told 10 years ago never to wear a regular deoderant or anti perspirant.

i think that makes total sense! When our bodies are filled with nasty stuff...nasty stuff comes out! haha...a year or so ago I went to the dermatologist for my acne & he asked me how often i poop...i thought that was a very odd question for a dermatologist to be asking that, but it turns out that the less frequent you go the more acne your body may produce...because you are full of all those toxins & they need to get out somehow. I am not a very frequent 'pooper' despite all the fruits, fiber & water I drink..but the more regular I am, the clearer my skin is...so I defiantly think that having toxins in your body causes all sorts of weird/bad things!

I've heard of celebrities - like Matthew McConaughey - who say they don't wear deoderant, and there are always stories about fellow actors who never noticed a stench and others who say it was awful. I mentioned it to my mom once, and she told me that my father has never used deoderant! I was shocked. Who knew? I guess she did, but she said he has never used it. Maybe some people's hormones are different than others. I imagine there must have been times my dad used it - he DID play semi-pro football back before I was born - but I never noticed him having odor ever when I was growing up. And trust me. He is definitely NOT a clean eater.

I'm just saying... Kelley

Hi everyone:
I never really thought to much about it but it does make sense. I never have found I needed a very strong deodorant. But I don't eat a lot of foods with garlic etc either. Was never a big eater or junk food fan, did eat too many candies.

I tried on of the natural brand deodorants and a week later have a severe allergic reaction while out for a walk. I have no idea what caused it but they say it could have taken the deodorant that long to biuld up in my system. So if that is happening do we really want to use any. I know we have to but is it really worth it to our bodys.

I moved out after I got married at age 25, so I was way beyond puberty, I started noticing it about 1 year after moving and before I had my daughter, thought it was related to the new stress that we all have after marriage. Went through menopause about 8 years ago and started noticing less need for deodorant about 2 years ago. The only difference was the diet. It seems the better I eat, the less deodorant. I just attributed it to the toxins being sweated out of my pores, and now there is less toxins. Just my opinion, but it does seem to make sense.

It is an interesting theory, and I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be true.

I would hate to see the clinical trials to test the theory though....

On a side note, did you notice a change in BO directly after moving out? Did you go from your parent's home to your spouses? Because when we are younger, we don't have as much BO and generally don't need deodorant until puberty.

I was having a discussion with some people at work the other day, and I brought up the question, I wonder if people were to eat healthier the need for deodorant would decrease. They all looked at me like I was nuts and called my idea stupid. However, when I was still living at home with mom and dad, we always ate healthy, had no junk in the house and never had soda, etc., I didn't have a problem with BO. A little after I got married (and realized I was in charge of the food purchases and it was an eating free for all frenzy) I noticed I needed stronger deodorants. Now that I am eating better I notice I can go lighter on the deodorant. So does my theory make sense? I figure it is like they use to say with computers, garbage in, garbage out.
