Spicy Food Equals Smelly Excess Sweating
What you eat and drink can have a huge impact on how you control your sweating. As a general rule – the more spicy and “hot” food you eat the more you are going to sweat too much. This is stating the obvious to you if you are coping with excess sweat. But there are ways of cooking food that will reduce your sweat problem.
Use Fresh Ingredients
I have found that by cooking and eating fresh ingredients rather than tinned or packaged foods that sweating can be reduced. I am not a scientist but simply know from experience that this is quite an important aspect of controlling excess sweat.
Spices & Herbs
Something worth doing is changing to fresh herbs and spices from the powdered version that you can buy in little tubs. This costs a little more but means you can enjoy the flavours of the herbs and spices without losing control of your sweat glands. An example of this would be a recipe that asks for basil and chilli in it. Instead of breaking open the tubs of processed spices and herbs you could put in a fresh chilli pepper and some fresh basil leaves taken from a plant in your kitchen.
Being sensible with strong flavours
The thing to do is reduce the levels of the flavourings by half and see how you go. For me this is often all I need to do to stop excess sweating. I can still enjoy a mild version of the flavours without creating personal sweating problems for myself. You will never be able to enjoy Chicken Vindaloo (No one really does anyway!) but by using fresh ingredients you will be able to eat much more interesting meals.
