Breakthrough Scientific Discovery:"Sniff Your Way to Weight Loss

Jul 3, 2008
If you want to lose weight, keep in mind that you're not going to be able to do it with a fad. However, many "new and popular" diets on the market are just that - fads. Most of these diets work for just a very short period of time because they're not realistic. They only work for a small number of people and those who lose weight often regain it very quickly, perhaps more than they lost to begin with.

Only a few diets work for a lot of people, and these diets are really lifestyle changes rather than diets. They don't impose overly restrictive and impossible restrictions on you that simply can't work over the long term. They work because they respect and appreciate your body and how it was meant to work. They teach you how to succeed over the long haul, not just in the short term.

The truth of the matter is that people really do love to eat. A major part of the joy of eating is the taste and the smell of the food. This creates the total experience. It just so happens that people sometimes really love to go for food that is basically "bad" for them. Many of these foods have smell and taste characteristics that are just too hard to resist for too many people.

It can be very difficult to maintain your distance from these foods so that you can stay away from them. This, in turn, means that a lot of diets simply don't work. If you include the fact that many people have established bad eating habits and have therefore become overweight, this eventually results in failure.

Also, we are all individuals. We differ from one another and so does our metabolism. Different people have different triggers that make them eat or, more importantly, turn to rich fattening foods.

Some people struggle to stay thin, while others struggle to gain weight. Some people should avoid simple carbohydrates while others don't have to as much. Those who must avoid simple carbohydrates (and often struggle to) may not be able to cope with the excess sugar simple carbohydrates stress the body with. Still other people have trouble metabolizing cholesterol or fat. This means that a single weight loss program isn't going to work for everyone, because it simply can't. We're simply not the same.

However, one new weight loss method is not a fad. It doesn't make empty promises and in fact is not a diet at all. Instead, it relies on a holistic method that has been put to the test and proven to work. It respects how your body really works, and involves the taste and scent inherent in appetite and in eating. In other words, "The nose knows."

Medical director of the Body Metabolism Institute, Dr. Leon Massage has founded a very successful weight loss program in Melbourne, Australia. His method is natural and drug-free, and helps his patients control their appetites and avoid binge eating. As he was investigating methods for this weight loss method, he discovered some research done by the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago. The research included 108 overweight volunteers who were on average 48 years of age and 197 pounds. Their average body mass index was 31, with a body mass index over 30 being considered "obese."

The group was given two bottles of crystals, differently flavored, over six months time. The volunteers were asked to sprinkle these crystals on every meal. They were asked to continue eating and exercising as they normally did, with no changes. At the end of the six-month period, 92 of the volunteers had finished the study, or 85.1%. These people lost an average of 33.6 pounds, with an average weight loss of 5.6 pounds per month.

The study concluded that specific smells and tastes could induce a feeling of satiety, or of being full. This occurs even if you eat the same foods you always do and even if you don't exercise beyond normal limits. Because you're naturally full, you have no desire to overeat or to eat in a way that's out of balance with your own personal body chemistry. This means that you'll naturally begin to lose weight and will get to your own personal ideal weight range or BMI. You don't need to force behavioral changes that are often painful in order to lose weight.

As a result and based on this, and similar, research, Dr. Leon Massage of the Body Metabolism Institute has created the BMI Weight Loss Wristband. He infused the special scents that suppress hunger into a wristband that could be worn during the day and the BMI Weight Loss Wristband is simply sniffed by the wearer whenever she feels tempted to eat more than she knows she should or really wants to. The BMI Wristband goes a step further by using the concept of neuro-associations it has added a motivational message to the wristband. Now wearing the wristband as a reminder and smelling the infused scents creates a positive neuro-association with the smells and tastes that curb hunger.

This means that losing weight doesn't have to be a painful process. With Dr. Massage's wristband, weight loss can be painless, natural, effortless and permanent. The results denote visible success.
