Smell bad with weight loss?

So I've been doing the 30 day shread and watching every single thing I eat. I've been loosing 1-2 lbs a week. The last 2 weeks my DH says I smell bad. I've taken multiple showers a day, tried new deodorant, perfume and feminine sprays.

I always exercise at night and shower right after.

Any ideas why I can't get this smell to go away? I'm freaking out thinking other people are smelling it too!! I myself can't smell what ever it is he smells.

I have no clue what could be causing it? Are you taking any new supplements?

I'm the same way.... honestly.... you're working pores and sweat glands that haven't been used in a long time.... most likely you're sweating all the unclean toxins from your body.

 What type of body wash do you use?  Antibacterial body wash, like Dial, can help get all the bacteria that may stay on your skin and also making sure that you don't wear your around town clothes until after you shower.  Like putting on your bra to run to the store and then come home and shower and put on same bra.  Also how often do you wash your sports bra?  Sounds gross, but it holds a LOT of sweat especially under the girls and that can cause bacteria to stay there too.  It will be better, just drink lots of water and you might use baby powder in places that catch the most moisture, under rear cheeks and under the girls to help with moisture and powder fresh scent

DON'T use feminine sprays.  They can give you an infection and throw off your pH, similar to a douche.  Are you cutting way back on carbs?  Taking too many showers can also dry out your skin and actually make you sweat and excrete more oils to try to compensate. 

He might be used to you eating crappy food, which makes you sweeter (all that sugar!).  But if you're cutting back on carbs a lot, that can REALLY change things.

Ok so this is most likely what's going on. I'm eatting nothing processed and almost entirely vegan. I did eat the garlic bread while out and if I drink coffee at work there is only the fake creamer junk. But I'm doing great. It's the engine 2 diet there is a great book, website and dvd
