What is the Paleo Solution for Smelly feet?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 27, 2012 at 9:37 AM

Besides the obvious, changing socks, having clean shows, not stepping in poop is there some Paleo Solution for fixing smelly feet? I have heard about keytones making body odour worse in the short term, not that I am saying this is causing the issue, just that it seems diet may have something to do with this.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for that info. I know I said besides the obvious, one thing I have learnt is obvious doesn't really exist for paleo beginners. So many 'obvious' things are now defunk.

Yeah its just hard to ditch shoes and socks when you work in an office, god knows, standing at my desk and putting butter in my espresso is pushing the limits enough. The last thing I would get away with is barefeet haha.

I've read about the possible high protein, body odor connection too (not specific to feet) http://perfecthealthdiet.com/2011/04/causes-and-cures-for-constipation/comment-page-3/#comment-94274

Seems like all you'd need to do is make sure your feet are dry before you cover them with anything. If you have trouble beyond that air em out whenever you can.

If there's an infection I'd say use tea tree oil after your shower. Works for me.

Sorry if this falls under 'obvious', but you didn't mention it specifically.

Shoes and socks are not paleo. Ditch them immediately.

Or you could cut dairy if you're eating it. And cut down you're protein intake. I notice a difference in odor when I'm eating a relatively high protein diet.

Not a paleo solution. Put a dryer sheet under the sole of your shoe.

Wear shoes and socks less often.

I've heard anecdotally that black socks make feet sweat more. ... ideas are the sock material is less breathable or black absorbs more heat ... not exactly proven, but something to consider ...

I personally find different shoes make a difference and I suspect it has to do with the breathability of different shoes.

Any other symptoms, like foot fungus?

I've always been a fan of cornstarch, especially around sandal season..I mean just cause I'm a dude doesn't mean I can't look good in a thong too.

Truth.
