Anyone else smelling "Beefy"?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Bought my grass-fed cow. Have been eating 1-2lbs of it each day this week. Not only do I smell beefy, my breast-fed baby does.

Has anyone else noticed this? Not that it bothers me at home, but in delicate social situations, how might one mask this beefy B-O? Obviously besides eating chicken for a few days...

I smell like onions all the time! And, well, you're right about the curry smell...

I haven't been around any dogs yet. I may get a little too much attention this way :/

I've had that happen when cooking copious amounts of bacon, but this is somehow different...

On a side note, my dog will eat ANYTHING. edible or not edible. So I can't trust her sense of taste! ;)

It's not hormonal, at least the smell. It smells just like the smell of the beef cooking. The hormones could be causing it to come out in my BO, though.

i can pretty much say it is true that 'you smell what you eat': i can say that i smell like an onion (that's gross) right now cause the last night i ate... well, onions on the other hand, southeast asians, for example, who habitually consume a lot of spices (turmeric for the most part) do smell 'curry' all the time

It may just be the smells from cooking. I've held down various jobs working as a cook, and the work clothes I used still smell like the kitchen, even after being washed twice a week.

No. But I have probably never eaten 1 lb of meat in a day.

It might well be that meaty smells from cooking/frying are clinging to your hair, clothes, and skin. This is why I no longer make bacon in my apartment, and take a shower (with soap and shampoo!) after I do my major cooking each day.

It's the smell of the beef cooking?

Maybe the odor is lingering in the air, in your clothes, in your hair, etc.

I know my whole house fills with the smell of whatever delicious meat I cook, maybe you're standing over the pan/griddle a lot while you cook, and are also doing the whole 'no soap, no poo' thing?

But since you're eating so much so often, you're obviously cooking it a lot, no?

Just a thought :)

My wife tells me I smell different after I have been strict Paleo for about 8-9 weeks. I don't eat 1-2 pounds of meat a day though. Probably more like 3-4 eggs and about 3/4 pound of meat.

For me I thought the lack of grains and sugars might be boosting my testosterone. Not sure if that would apply to you :-).

How funny, I've never had this issue. After going Paleo, I actually stink less and am less "gross" = less oily, flaky, etc.

Makes me wonder if hormones are playing a role, somehow? Kinda like how you can taste the grass in pastured butter?

One of the reviews states that her dogs didn't like them and they smell like plastic. If a dog won't eat it, it probably doesn't taste good. I don't see why it would kill you though.
