What to do: While cooking, the appetite might decrease or disappear completely because smells deceive our brain into thinking we are full. This is why aromatherapists recommend inhaling smells of apples, mint, or vanilla when dieting.
What happened: The intense smell of aroma oil really does reduce the appetite but not for long. After half an hour, the hunger returns stronger than before.
Our verdict: This does work but not for long.
Tip #3: Brush your teeth instead of eating dessert.
