Smells That Boost Weight Loss And Curbs Appetites

By Expert February 9, 2011 - 8:17pm

Great news for anyone on a diet who wants an extra boost to support your new lifestyle change.

A recent article from MSN.com states that researchers have found certain smells can help you lose weight, power up your workout and lift your spirits.

Researchers at Osaka University in Japan found that exposing rats to the scent of grapefruit oil for 15-minute intervals, three times a week helped reduce not only their appetite, but their weight. Inhale this fresh citrus scent and dial back the portion of your next meal.
As a added bonus the French have used it for cellulite and water retention. You may try adding a drop to your water or at night add several drops with coconut oil and apply to areas of concern. Grapefruit may be beneficial for challenges with depression

A study at the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, overweight people smelled banana, green apple, and peppermint when they felt a craving—and lost more weight than the non sniffers. Peppermint is also excellent to inhale before a workout. Carry it in your purse and when you start feeling fatigue take out your peppermint and inhale.

So when you get that craving to eat a cookie or a bag of chips instead grab your peppermint and grapefruit and sniff away!!
