1. Red meat
In a 2006 study published in Chemical Senses, women rated vegetarian1 men's perspiration2 samples as overwhelmingly more attractive, as opposed to those who had recently consumed red meat. Because red meat is harder to digest, it leaves behind residue4 in the digestive tract3 that eventually mingles6 with bacteria, and then is released in your sweat.
2. Alcohol
According to Berkeley Wellness, when you consume alcohol, most of it is metabolized by the liver into acetic7 acid. However, a bit of that alcohol is released through your sweat and your breath. This smell is worse the more you drink.
3. Fish
As most of us know, fish is seriously great for your health and contains glorious amounts of omega-3s, aka the "good" fat. The downside? A 2007 report in the JAMA Network found that people with an unpleasant body odor tested positive for an inability to break down the food-derived compound (trimethylamine). Folks with this metabolic8 disorder9 -- called trimethylaminuria -- will develop a fishy10 odor when they eat fish and other high-protein foods.
4. Cruciferous vegetables
Despite their health benefits, vegetables that are in the Brassicafamily -- cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli11, for example -- contain high levels of sulfur12. This chemical has a naturally unappealing smell that can worsen your odor. The pungent13 aroma14 will escape through your breath, sweat, and, yep, gas. This doesn't mean you should snub these veggies altogether; boiling them removes most of the stench. You can also add spices like coriander, turmeric, and caraway to level out the sulfuric scent15.
5. Asparagus
Asparagus is mostly known for making urine smell terrible. Often compared to boiled cabbage, this scent is the result of your body breaking down the sulfuric compound, mercaptan, which can cause your body odor to suffer as well.
6. Curry16 and cumin
You may want to think twice before ordering the tikka masala: Strong spices such as curry and cumin can wreak17 havoc18 on your body's natural odor, according to Medical Daily. This advice rings even truer for pregnant moms; a prenatal diet that regularly includes spices like curry and cumin could possibly affect a newborn's body odor.
7. Coffee
The diuretic nature of coffee dries out the mouth, which harbors the growth of bacteria and creates an universally unpleasant smell. According to Andrew Weil, MD, this can extend to your body odor as well. Stimulants19 like coffee increase the activity of apocrine sweat glands20.
8. Garlic
It's safe to say that you don't have to be an expert nutritionist to know that garlic stinks21. This stench can be chalked up to allicin, another sulfuric compound that is released when garlic is cut or crushed. After consumption, it quickly breaks down in the body and converts to other odiferous substances that mingle5 with bacteria and seep22 out in your sweat. However, some recent studies have actually indicated that this smell may be construed23 as sexy by some.
