Popular influencer and carnivore dieter Dr. Paul Saladino has sparked some online outrage after claiming he doesn’t need soap and deodorant to smell clean.
dr Paul Saladino is a functional medicine physician, influencer, and one of the leading proponents of what is popularly known as the “carnivore diet.”
The carnivore diet is a diet consisting only of animal products – namely red meat, eggs, fish and poultry, excluding fruits and vegetables. Saladino literally wrote a book about it, but that’s not the only unusual way of life he’s indulged in.
A recent TikTok from the MD shocked the internet by claiming he doesn’t use personal care products like soap, toothpaste and even deodorant.
His video, in which he discusses his personal grooming habits, has gone viral, racking up over a million views as curious cats can’t believe a licensed doctor appears to be avoiding hygiene.
“People always ask me what kind of shampoo I use,” he says in his video. “None. Just water! Soap? Just water. I don’t use that either.”
Instead, Saladino argues that “the quality of your diet determines how you smell and how you breathe.”

@carnivoremd2 Absolutely nothing, that’s right. I use absolutely nothing when I shower and brush my teeth. Only water! #theremembering🏹 ♬ Fashion Show (256764) – TimTaj
However, TikTok commenters don’t really believe his claims as oodles of viewers come along with serious speculation.
“Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for good diet and exercise, but using soap and deodorant isn’t going to shave years off your life,” one user wrote.
“Bro, not all bad breath comes from the gut,” argued another. “It can also come from not flossing, and also from the tongue or even a cavity if someone had one.”
“So… you don’t wash your hands after you’ve cleaned out or before you’ve prepared food?” asked another.
All in all, it doesn’t look like most people from Dr. Saladino’s claims are convincing — but he’s far from the only big name pushing the carnivore diet. In fact, popular podcast host Joe Rogan goes on a diet once a year…though he sometimes says his stomach doesn’t approve of his food choices.
