5 Scents in Your Kitchen That'll Help You Lose Weight - Are you a fan of any of these foods?
by Emily Abbate
When it comes to working out and losing weight,
I think it's safe to say that most of us want to do the lease amount
possible and still see results. Like, if you were to tell me a pair of
$400 leggings existed that would help tone my thighs by simply slipping
them on? I'd pull out my checkbook in a hot second. Well, what if I were
to tell you that there is a thing (and a tasty one at that) you can
simply SMELL that will help you drop pounds? Yup, get this: a recent study in the American Journal of Nutrition found that
sniffing olive oil helps you feel full.
Um, OK, I'm into this. But WAIT, it gets better. There are other items in your kitchen that have similar effects, too! Check out our list of 4 other things you can smell that'll help curb your appetite:
A research foundation in Chicago discovered that women exposed to the scent of bananas lost up to 17 pounds per month. Whoa. Give me a bunch!
The garlic smell helps curb appetite by releasing the hormone leptin in direct proportion to the amount of stored body fat. What's that do? Well, leptin helps the brain determine if you've consumed enough fat or if you still need more of it.
