HOW YOUR NOSE CAN HELP YOU LOSE 30 LBS. IN 6 MONTHS!

This is no joke. It’s cutting edge research that we’ve found in an obscure journal! It’s been proven in several big studies already. Here it is in a nutshell.
Fragrant scents stimulate important mental and physical functions. They trigger the release of neurotransmitters that send signals to the brain. In a study of 195 people, it was found that those who inhaled one of these aromas whenever they felt like eating,
lost nearly three pounds in two weeks. A study of 3,193 volunteers found that sniffing one of these aromas resulted in an average weight loss of 30 pounds in six months.
Sniff the above scents often and smell every food before you eat it. Your brain will perceive that you’re eating more and suppress the appetite.
A new study done by Alan Hirsch, MD, noted that subjects who sprinkled one of these flavors on food lost an average of 5.6 pounds per month over 6 months. The 108 overweight participants sprinkled (or inhaled the fragrance of) banana, lavender, chocolate, green apple, or peppermint scents resulted in an average weight loss of 30 pounds in six months. Sniff the above scents often and smell every food before you eat it. Your brain will perceive that you’re eating more and suppress the appetite.
A new study done by Alan Hirsch, MD, noted that subjects who sprinkled different flavors on food lost an average of 5.6 pounds per month over 6 months. The most used flavors were cheddar cheese, bananas, and raspberry (but not limited to those), on food whenever they ate without otherwise changing their diets. All subjects were asked to inhale the scents three times, five to six minutes before and after eating a meal.

FOOD CRAVINGS: WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS / MEN ARE FROM MARS

A food craving is a powerful desire to consume a specific food. Food cravings differ from regular hunger in that hunger can be fulfilled by any number of foods, whereby a craving can only be satisfied by a particular food. Cravings vary by gender (women have more cravings than men), by age (the elderly have more cravings than younger people), and by types of food (women crave foods such as chocolate, cake, and candy. Men crave more protein-based foods like pizza, burgers and crunchy snacks such as nuts and chips). There are four theories explaining food cravings. Three of the four affect men as well as women. The fourth, hormone theory, impacts only women. The four theories are as follows:
One: Deprivation Theory. When a food is off limits or restricted in some way, cravings increase. Food denial has been linked to overeating; we tend to crave what we cannot have. And when we overeat, we feel guilty which leads to more eating and more guilt -a vicious cycle.
Two: Brain Chemical Theory. Neuropeptide and galanin, two brain chemicals, affect food cravings. Neuropeptide, which causes us to crave sugar, peaks just after waking up. Galanin, which initiates a craving for fat, peaks at night.
Three: Stress Response Theory. During times of high stress the body releases Cortisol and adrenaline, initiating the fight or flight response. During such times the body demands immediate energy. This increases the desire for simple carbohydrates – which the body converts in glucose.
Four: Hormone Theory. This is where women differ so greatly from men. All of us endure emotionally-driven cravings: isolation, resentment, anger, unfulfilled needs. But, it is only women who endure hormonally-driven food cravings. And the key hormone involved with food cravings is serotonin. Cravings can be controlled by supplanting: substituting a good food for a bad one.
