How peppermint, banana, and green apple can increase fat loss

Today's article shows you an eye-opening (and unusual) study that shows how certain smells can actually INCREASE your fat loss... very interesting stuff!

Here goes...

The Fat-Burning "Sniff Trick": How Mint, Banana, and Apple Scents Boost Fat Loss

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
fat 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

Each test subject was 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...

  *  497% more weight that they lost!    
(19.15 lbs average vs. only 3.85 lbs in control group)

Here's why it 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?)

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:

  *  Peppermint
  *  Banana
  *  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 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!
