People are using this "trick" of smelling a lemon to help boost their self-esteem
A study found that while smelling a lemon will not actually help you become slimmer, it can help you FEEL slimmer.
And in my opinion, that's half the battle. After all, isn't that why we all diet in the first place? To FEEL better?
According to Fox News:
People who sniffed a lemon felt thinner, lighter, and better about their body. And smelling the scent of VANILLA did the opposite. It made them feel heavier and more out of shape than they really were.
