9. Red meat: Foul body odor
Every guy loves a slab of steak or a beef burger, but according to a study from the National Institute of Health, women prefer the odor of men who consume a vegetarian diet. On the last day of a two-week experiment, 17 men wore axillary pads to collect their body odor, which 30 women sniffed and assessed for pleasantness, attractiveness, masculinity, and intensity. A month later, the procedure was repeated, only the male participants adopted the opposite diet than before. Women found vegetarians’ natural body odor to be less intense, more pleasant, and more attractive. Red-meat eaters, you’ve been warned: Beef has a negative impact on perceived body odor.
