I have noticed recently that people are starting to smell... unpleasant. It is not unclean body odor. I cannot put my finger or my nose on exactly what it is that I am smelling but I am noticing it more and more. Tonight I was in a large group of people and it was very noticeable to the point that I had to put a little distant between myself and the persons I was speaking to.
I am worried this is due to my fruit diet, that I can smell better. My youngest son came in to greet me right after he got home from school and I noticed that he smelled wonderful and sweet like bananas. This is the kid that is almost completely raw ( he eats SAD but more raw now than anything else.) He eats half of my bananas everyday. Now I am thinking if I can smell sweet bananas on him, I must be smelling the diet of other people now.
What to do? I have to go out in public.
I've always been able to smell people who eat a lot of meat..yuk!
I have become even more sensitive and can smell when people are dehydrated, ill, or generally toxic=yuk!
I know how you feel! A recent date who otherwise great, smelled so much of meat and unfreshness it just couldn't go anywhere...and what do you say?????
I sympathise... humans seemingly smell not so good as a rule... Safi :-)
It smells like onion breath to me. Blech!
Yep, it adds yet another obstacle to dating. haha
i think it's rotting animal flesh a lot of the time too.
and the chemicals produced to deal with it, double yuck
i always could smell when people are sick. it's like a pungent "old person" smell. i could never pin point why it was only me that could smell such an oder. i never used to tell people either for fear they'd think i was insane. I can smell when people are getting sick too. like 2 days b4 they get any symptoms. Its sooooo gross. now that im raw i smell their meat breathe and bodily oders too. double yuck! I breathe through my mouth when i can't stand it. one day i fear ill be able to taste the stink!
That would be a horrible day, but I believe it could happen. If I walk into a fast food restaurant with a friend, I practically gag on the smell. It feels like the oil in the air is actually going into my body through my nose and my mouth. And it probably is . . . remind me not to accompany people to fast food restaurants any more!
I think dogs get a lot of info smelling people.
You could wear a gas mask.... But seriously your smell is better now and you will smell people's bad odors. It's a bummer, I agree. The one positive I can think of that can come of this is it increases your desire to motivate others towards this diet.
Makes me glad my weak sense of smell isn't growing stronger :-)
