A SMELL diet? Really?


The smell of food can affect how much of it you eat, according to research carried out in the Netherlands. The new study found that strong aromas lead to smaller bite sizes and suggests that aroma may be used as a means to control portion size. Smaller bites sizes are linked towards a lower flavor release which may explain why we take smaller bites of unfamiliar or disliked foods. The researchers even suggest adding garlic to dishes as the strong flavor might lead to eating smaller portions. This study suggests that manipulating the odor of food could result in a 5-10 percent decrease in intake per bite. (
