    No deoderant needed anymore...

    Shop Now
    I can't believe this. For the last few days I wanted to experiment to see how "funky" primal eating made me So, I went three days with no deoderant and I have found that... I DONT NEED ANY! I even got dh to do a sniff test after sweating to make sure nothing was wrong with my nose and he couldn't believe it either! NO SMELL AT ALL!!! When I was a raw foodist they would tell us that eating meat made you funky, but now I know this not to be true!

    Horay!!! No more deoderant for me!!!!!

    Yep! You don't need soap, either.

    The "no shampoo" experiment is going so well for me, maybe I'll give no deodorant a try too!
    Liz.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    What I'm saying is that water is abrasive enough to remove any gunk your skin might accumulate in a day. Soap is unnecessary. Might still want to use soap on your hands after wiping your butt, though.

    I find I still need deodorant. Not as much as I used to -- maybe after a few more months I won't need it any more either.

    But I don't need soap. Or shampoo.
    If I don't live my dream, who will?

    +1, no soap, deoderant or shampoo. occasional toothpaste.

    I feel cleanest after a really cold shower. A hot shower leaves me feeling oily.

    I still have to use deoderant. I have tried the salt stick and I still smelled funky.

    10 months of Primal and...

    Stinky pits, no change from before.
    I began this Primal journey on December 30th, 2009 and in that time I've lost over 125 LBS.

    Two months of going primal,

    1) Foul Balls still require soap. Balls were designed to hang in the breezes, not to be cooped up in pants
    2) Stinkin Armpits still require deodorant.

    Maybe next year things might improve.

    Best to all,
    Grizz
