USING AROMAS to satisfy: Using Aromas need to be done in such a way that you don't CRAVE and EAT fatty, high sugar foods. And this is what I was able to do with my foods during these past few months.
I even found an amazing candle maker which used Shea Butter, Soy, and 100% pure essential oils that I buy candles that smell like POMEGRANATE. It's heavenly. And...several times a day, when I was craving something or just needed to distract myself from food, I would pick it up and EXPERIENCE the aromatic fragrance. When I was completely in THE MOMENT with the essential oil candle...cheating on my diet just plain didn't and wouldn't occur.
Cinnamon candles, Pumpkin Spice, Key Lime, and Coffee flavored candles work great. I draw the line at candles that smell too much like chocolate or cinnabuns or pound cake. I am going to find out where to get those forks where you can entwine fresh herbs and experiment myself at my own dinner parties.
