Peppermint is a new secret weapon in the quest to fight fat.
In one study printed in the North American Journal of Psychology in 2007 at Wheeling University in Virginia, 40 volunteers were asked to sniff peppermint every 2 hours for five days. After the initial 5 days, they were given a placebo to sniff for 5 more days. When the researchers compared the results, during the week they sniffed peppermint, on average, they consumed 1,800 fewer calories! WOW!! Experts are now saying that even a sniff will help you eat less.
Pretty wild, huh!?!
For a quick fix, take a sniff of some of the oil before a meal…OR…add it too your chocolate Shakeology for additional benefits.
Here is what and how you’ll make a yummy peppermint shake.
