Here is how smelling food can make you fat

If you had the assumption that overeating was the only thing that was going to make you fat, think again. According to a new study, the smell of the food we eat will have a huge impact on how the calories are used by our body.

It also showed a heavy link between the system which enables us to smell and the regions of the brain which helps in metabolism.

“The study shows if we manipulate olfactory inputs we can actually alter how the brain perceives energy balance and how the brain regulates energy balance,” said Celine Riera from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.
