Stop High Calorie Munchies!

Saw Kym Douglas on the Ellen Show talking about a UK study where women wore a patch with vanilla extract to control sweet cravings.

Vanilla apparently triggers serotonin (a natural feel good chemical messenger) in the brain which helps curb cravings for sweets and chocolates.  A bit of searching Google reveals this is not a new study (it goes back to 2000).

Kym’s suggestion was to create a do it yourself “Slimming Spray” by mixing the following in a spray bottle:-

  • Pure natural vanilla extract
  • Distilled water
  • Rubbing alcohol

Spray on and stop those sweet cravings.
