There is no doubt that most of us spend all winter getting our SUMMER bodies ready and then all SUMMER ruining all the hard work to get our WINTER bodies ready. Or you can just be like me and are NEVER ready, and eat like it's WINTER 365 days a year. 

After years of hard work in the gym,  caring how I look has taken a backseat to HOW I FEEL.  Ok I'm lying.......that's just an excuse because I really love food that is not so good for you. 


You most likely wish you knew this years ago, allowing you to save money on a gym membership but a new study has suggested the smell of lemons can make people feel........THINNER AND LIGHTER!!!!!  Here is a new inspirational quote for you......."WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS........SMELL THEM AND FEEL SLIMMER!!"

CAN IT REALLY BE THAT EASY??  Before you get on the phone to cancel your gym membership because you feel this is your EASY way out,  I have to point out that the most important word in the above study is, FEEL! You will only FEEL slimmer, not necessarily LOOK slimmer if that is your goal.

The science behind it is that the sense of smell can influence the image we have in our mind of our body and on the feelings and emotions towards it.  

It is important to point out, especially going into the holiday season.......the SMELL OF VANILLA had the opposite effect - making people feel THICKER AND HEAVIER

I'll be back....I'm putting on my gym clothes and heading to the supermarket to buy a bag of LEMONS!!!
