Weight Loss: Sneaky Tricks to Lose Weight:
It’s one of the biggest obstacles in our fight against fat.
I’ll be the first one to admit, my appetite for delicious foods has gotten the best of me over these last few days.
Christmas Eve was breaded chicken Parmesan, cheesy potatoes,and the normal plate of desserts.
Christmas Day was a repeat with a deep fried turkey, my wife’s delicious lasagna, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and the normal plate of desserts — again.
Jeeeesh. Will it ever end!
So when my buddy Mike Geary sent me over this new research I was instantly intrigued.
It shows how certain smells can actually shut down cravings and help you with your weight loss.
Very cool stuff…
The Fat-Burning “Sniff Trick”: How Mint, Banana, and Apple Scents Boost Fat Loss
By Mike Geary
Nutrition Investigator and author, 101 Sneaky Weight Loss Tricks
Do you realize that if you were blindfolded and plugged your nose that you couldn’t tell if you were eating an apple or an onion?
It’s true! You can even test it yourself!
You see, our olfactory sense (brainiac translation = “our sense of smell”) is directly tied in with our brain’s perception of what we eat, and as recent research has concluded…
…how MUCH we eat.
Here’s why it’s important and how it can help YOU shave off inches over the next month and even ultimately reach your weight loss goal:
Scientific discovery “tricks” your body for faster fat loss…
A 1999 project conducted two randomized, double-blind studies consisting of over 3,000 subjects who had at least 10 lbs to lose.
In addition, 3/4 of the subjects also were psychologically affected by their weight, claiming:
– Impaired sex life
– Bad feelings about overeating
– Lack of energy, and
– Poor self-image
The test subjects were directed to NOT make any changes to their nutrition or exercise program except for one thing:
One test group was directed to sniff a specific aroma prior to eating their meals and whenever they felt hungry.
Specifically, here’s what they smelled:
Month 1 & 4: Peppermint
Month 2 & 5: Banana
Month 3 & 6: Green Apple
The other group (the “control” group) was given a placebo inhalent that simply smelled like detergent.
At the end of the study, the subjects who were given the “smelly” inhalents reported:
– 50% decrease in food cravings
– Decreased appetite
– No nagging hunger pains
– Much less “snacking”
And get this…
– they lost 497% more weight!
(19.15 lbs average vs. only 3.85 lbs in control group)
Here’s why this works…
One of the factors that tells your brain that you’re “full” is your sense of smell as you bring food up to your mouth to eat.
Literally, after your brain senses it’s “smelled enough,” it tells your body you’re full and it’s time to stop eating.
By smelling the three aromas, you’re able to “trick” the body into eating less and therefore consuming less calories (and you know what THAT means, right?)…Weight Loss!
Now, here’s what you need to do…
1. Find yourself 3 different essential oils (even candles will work if you can find them) that match the 3 used in the study:
– Green Apple
(I found $2 “tester” vials online for these 3 scents.)
2. Use each scent for one month and then switch.
(I don’t know why this is important but it’s how they conducted the study so I’m sure there’s a reason. Why fix what isn’t broken?)
3. Keep the scent handy throughout the day and sniff it in the following instances:
– 5 minutes prior to your “main” meals
– 5 minutes prior to any planned snacks
– Any time you feel hungry
4. To “sniff properly” (I know…sounds strange, right?), plug up one nostril and sniff the scent 3 times through the other and then switch.
Do this 3 times for each side (total of 18 sniffs) at the designated times.
Enjoy your new found fat loss results, appetite control, and less cravings!
Like I said…very cool stuff.
