Sense of smell

Here's an interesting article about using your sense of smell to lose weight. NOTE: it is basically an advertisement for their product so take it with a grain of salt. ;-)

And I'm not sure who they are used for their study, but most people I know who have done Weight Watchers lose more than 10lbs every 18 months! And with the Flat Belly Diet, I lost 8lbs the first month.

And, some common sense from Denise Austin:
Find the Key to Weight-Loss Success

Q: Do you recommend cutting carbs or cutting fat to lose the most weight?

A: I'm honestly more into cutting calories, because I like a well-balanced eating plan that includes such good, healthy carbs as whole grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables and about 25 percent good fats, such as lean chicken, fish, avocados, and olive oil. My Meal Plan provides you with low-calorie recipes that incorporate these recommendations.

Remember, weight loss is all about how many calories you eat versus how many you burn through daily movement and exercise!

Right! But, then again a lot of people I know who lose weight at WW lose, but then gain before 18 months was over. Maybe that's it? OR, maybe they had people that only needed to lose a small amount of weight. Gotta watch those tricky companies!

Hi there just found your blog - looking to find other people that are following the same path to a healthier lifestyle.

Love your answer to this question - I agree 100% its about balance and calories in and out not denying one food group or another.
