Smell Chips, Crave Less

Health & Nutrition - - NUTRITION UPDATE -

When you’re crav­ing a por­tion of chips, there’s noth­ing more tempt­ing than the smell of a fresh por­tion. But a new study has re­vealed that forc­ing your­self to en­dure the smell for longer than two min­utes can ac­tu­ally help you curb the crav­ing. Re­searchers from the Uni­ver­sity of South Florida have found that am­bi­ent food smells can di­rectly sat­isfy your stom­ach, as your brain doesn’t dif­fer­en­ti­ate the source of sen­sory plea­sure. So, in­stead of run­ning away when you smell those chips, it seems that putting your­self through two min­utes of their de­li­cious scent could help you say no!
