Peppermint Take A Whiff

Hi, everyone, I hope everyone is having a good week.  I have a question for you, do you know the power of peppermint oil?  A study finds that sniffing peppermint every 2 hours  can suppress hunger.   I'm definitely trying this.

 A psychologist, Brian Raudenbush, a professor at Wheeling Jesuit University and West Virginia says it can make us not want to eat. The study showed that people who sniffed peppermint every 2 hours were not as hungry as non sniffers.

   The people who inhaled the peppermint ate 2800 fewer calories in a week. A person could actually lose a pound a week by doing this.  How awesome is this?   In an earlier study, Raudenbush showed that athletes practice better if they sniff peppermint as well.

 Peppermint, is also known to help with false hunger, which in return is emotional eating. So, take a whiff or a sniff.  Try it for a week and let me know if it works for you.
