I'd vote "Worse than average" for one of my brothers!  Talk about a host of denied food allergies!

Ribbit, you'll be happy to hear that I finally bought some baby powder today, and I'm gonna start using it in place of the aluminum-ridden antiperspirant I've been using.  Honestly, I think the stuff has been too effective.  When I exercise, I don't sweat a lot like I should, so I wonder if the junk has gotten into my system and is suppressing sweating all over, not just where it's applied.  Guess I'll see in a couple of weeks if anything changes!

The baby powder only has talc and fragrance.  I looked for fragrance-free, but couldn't find any.  I can barely smell it, so it's ok.  And, about the baby powder...I went back to my antiperspirant.  I was starting to smell myself, and it wasn't even getting hot yet.   I guess I wasn't as odor-free as I thought.  I'll have to figure out some other, natural way to deal with that later.  The antiperspirant doesn't cause my skin to break out or anything else weird, so I'm not going to concern myself about it right now.

I think my hypothesis about nonnies was wrong.  I forgot how much dead skin we shed daily, and when the bacteria have that to eat they don't need our blood antigens!

Maybe as a compromise, you can use the anti-persperant only when you know you will be around others. If you know you will be home all day or just doing casual errands, you can do the powder or do tea tree oil like I do.
It also is so cold here, I wear several layers much of the year. I find that maybe only the first layer has a little odor
at the end of the day. That was a pleasant surprise!

My mother-in-law used to use baking soda. She would have a rash from everything else. It helps deodorize refrigerators so I don't know why it wouldn't help! Whatever kind of powder you use, I would be careful about not breathing the stuff.

Chlorophyll is great for the breath.  When I used to smoke I took it regularly and one guy at work told me that I was the only one of the smokers in the office that he couldnt smell it on my breath.

By far, the single best deodorant I've ever used is Green Tea & Clay deodorant from Pure & Basic:

This week I've done away with the antiperspirant again, in exchange for some plain old deodorant.  I'm sweating more (which I need to stay cool at work), but still not noticing any BO.  I'm feeling a bit better this week than last week, too, but there are too many variables in that equation to say why!  At any rate, that's one less source of toxins to worry about (i.e. the aluminum).

I use magnesium oil for deodorant...keeps me dry. I'm not a nonnie so I stink (lol), but if I'm not sweating,  then I'm not stinking. When I go to a party or somewhere I know people will be hugging me I wear deodorant.

I'm a nonnie and I sweat up a storm and stink!  I voted average, though, because I think a lot of people stink . . . I have a super sensitive sense of smell.  I can smell bad breath and body odor on others when they seemingly have no idea they smell.  I should have been a dentist because I would not need to examine someone's mouth to know they need work - I can smell it.

I can even smell that "bedroom" smell on people.  They don't smell sweaty, just like they slept in their sheets and didn't shower.  

Sorry, but I often wonder if people who say they don't smell just can't smell themselves.  I am not talking about you folks here, as I believe a good diet can have a postivie impact on body odor.

I am running 4-5 times a week.  The other day I was doing laundry and usually it is my husband's workout clothes that really smell.  I was shocked to smell how badly my clothes smelled as well.  Maybe things will change the longer I am on the diet

Your exercise clothes probably had a few days to "ferment" before you did the laundry!

Ha, ha!!! You are so right! !!!     Boy, did they stink though.  Do you think I might begin to smell less when I have been on the diet for a longer time?  I have only been on the diet since mid-October, 2010, so less than a year.  I know many on this forum have been on it for years!  Is not being so smelly is something I can look forward to?

I think people smell worse when they're unhealthy, and have less body odor (and a more pleasant odor, at that) when they're healthier. It gets worse during "detox" phases.

I stopped using aluminum anti-perspirants years ago, but I still use crystal deodorant after every shower. I don't know how bad I'd smell if I skipped using it, but I don't really want to find out!

My daughters have never used the chemical anti-perspirants, only natural deodorants. My younger daughter can use any of them with no problems, but my older daughter needs to keep changing brands and styles because whichever one she chooses, it stops working after a few months. So she has about half a dozen deodorants in her room and she keeps alternating them.

I suspect that my older daughter is a nonnie and my younger is a secretor. They're both on the O secretor diet (when home; they both "cheat" when away from home overnight.) I suspect that my older daugter is inadvertantly ingesting toxins, which keep her body odor worse, while my younger daughter is on the "right diet" and smells less. At first I thought she smelled less because she was younger and hadn't gone through the smelliest phase of puberty yet, but at age 15, I doubt that's still the case.

I don't know if my husband is a nonnie or not (he did have very bad tooth decay while growing up) but I am (& have an extremely sensitive nose) so even if he has been eating away from home for just one meal his sweat will be so different to what it usually is, that I can tell what he had for lunch by it...

I voted averge, but thinking about this, it is only in summer, and only after a workout at the gym that I now feel I need deoorant at all. When we go camping (hiking, canoeing) and it is hot, I notice almost no body odour. My hubby, who does not follow BTD at all, has no body odour either.


I love dogs and turtles, bird watching, canoeing, cooking for friends and family, knitting, reading, and DR. D's diets!

I am secretor so I did not vote.

I once read body odor was related to kidney detox.

I mainly post to mention that when my brother in law was having a heart attack it was impossible for me to greet him the two - three days prior. His smell was foul.

I've always believed body odor (under arms) was caused by bacterial or other microbial growth.  Why would nonnie's smell less?  Don't we nonnies have more bacteria growing on our skin than secretors?

If this play a big factor on secrector and non. Then I`m approximately a secretor because of body odor. After playing tennis for an hour. I already smell something on my under arms.


What has surprised me? What has touched me? What has inspired me?
