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 feel you, honey.
And the crazy thing is, people assume that it's totally normal to smell like a waste pit... Ugh...
I saw my ex by coincidence after going 80/10/10 and was flabbergasted how bad he smelled to me (he only ever eats meat, eggs and dairy). How was I ever able to stand that smell before I went LFRV... Unbelievable!
Same here! Well I guess smell narrows the dating pool for me now! haha ;)
They are not starting to smell, they have always smelt. But you are clean and your smell is less "offensive" and strong and so you are sensitive to your surroundings.
I thought I was the only one noticing this. On the flip side, people have asked me what I was wearing when I had no perfume on. I smelled like tropical gum apparently? Maybe I'm a "juicy fruit" LOL Rather smell like fruits than steak.
haha! Juicy Fruit! Brilliant!
my friends always ask me what I put on as well! L'Eau d'Orange? =D
its very common that you will have a increase in the ability to smell. less mucus better use of your senses
I'm not even fully started and I feel like I need to wear a gas mask to stores. I tend to shop at nights when there are no crowds. A large man bumped into me yesterday while buying bananas and I almost puked on him.
Check out this amusing video on body odor and diet- and sexual attractiveness.
The same exact thing happens to me when I eat raw consistently. I can freaking smellllll everything! It drives me insane. Especially the pollution. My nose is just super sensitive to it now and man, being in a big city is torture. And don't get me stated when I walk near people that smoke cigarettes. But it makes sense that we would have wonderful noses, we have to smell when fruit goes bad!
I am definitely with you Jenna. Well said. Big city living becomes a bit ridiculous at times. I am glad I can relate to you.
"flee from the city, its getting shitty..."
