Would you be able to live with yourself if you went an entire year without wearing deodorant?
Not many people would be able to tough it out. Developing a slight body odor over the course of the day is what comes with being a human.
We're total weirdos with sweat glands and pores.
That's precisely why it's pretty shocking to hear that one YouTuber was able to rid herself of body odor after ditching deodorant for a full year.
Hawaii-based vlogger Alyse Brautigam claims that she's been sticking to a strict vegan diet for the last couple of years.
In the process of committing to her diet, she's been able to live a deodorant-less lifestyle because of her smart food choices.
Now, Brautigam's vegan diet isn't just ANY ole vegan diet -- it's a RAW vegan diet. In other words, the "Raw Alignment" vlogger only eats fruits and vegetables.
"No fish, no eggs, no dairy," she suggests.
She took to YouTube, saying,
I have been going to the gym actually for the past two full years. And when I go to the gym I sweat like a pig. I'm not one of those people that goes in and works out and doesn't break a sweat. I aim to be super sweaty by the end of the workout.
Still, while sweating "like a pig," her body somehow doesn't emit an odor, she says.
Her stance? Well, she compares it to how juice shops don't smell much while bakeries and pizzerias give off a heavy smell. She added,
Your body actually starts to smell differently based on the food you are putting into your body.
So, if you wish to live a life that no longer requires you to run into CVS on your lunch break in dire need of deodorant, you might want to switch up your diet.
As for me, well, I like really delicious, mostly unhealthy and super-fattening foods so I won't be cutting the deo' out of my life anytime soon.
