A new and extremely healthy way of dropping weight has been discovered – breathe in smells and stay sated! It sounds hardly credible, but it’s a hard fact. German and Austrian scientists conducted research that showed that the smell of olive oil is strongly linked with losing weight.
Volunteers who participated in the experiment took 2 glasses of yoghurt daily for 3 months; the yoghurt was enriched with fats – rape and olive oil, butter and pork lard.
It emerged that those who went heavy on olive oil had more serotonin in the blood, the hormone that gives the sense of satiety.
The scientists expanded their research and discovered that this is due to aromatic substances evolved by oil. People stayed sated for a long time after having taken yoghurt with olive oil added, even though they had less substantial meals. Even after testing, they still did not gain weight. That is, the results have been – not temporary.
