Hey fellas, wearing nice cologne isn’t the only way to smell nice for the ladies. According to a study, what you eat not only affects your weight, but how you smell as well.

The study found that women preferred body odor of men who ate more fruits and veggies, whereas men who ate more refined carbs, like bread and pasta, gave off a not so appealing smell.

“Women basically found that men who ate more vegetables smelled nicer,” said author of the study Ian Stephen of Macquarie University in Australia.
