I’m not new to dieting. This wasn’t the first time I had declared that I was going to get fit and it wasn’t the first time I had vowed to succeed. But deep down, I knew something was different. This time I wouldn’t launch myself into a restrictive starvation mode eating pattern. This time I would do it right. This time I would use my failures to fuel my success
Remember, I did say that I tried a fair few things.
One of these was Specific Olfactory Stimulation (an SOS to the brain). According to people a lot smarter than me: ” inhaling the scents of food, in the absence of food, causes early satiety, squelches food cravings and decreases appetite by “fooling” the brain into thinking that one has eaten a proportional amount of food. In the end, this process turns off hunger, helps the user to stop eating sooner and thus controls the amount of food consumed ‐ a direct link to caloric consumption”…It also makes you look a bit weird as you hold your head up high and sniff the air. But hey, as you’ll learn, I am a try anything kind of guy and surprisingly, it worked….for me.
