Have you ever had a sip of orange juice right after you just brushed your teeth?
It’s not tasty, that’s for sure.
Well, that’s similar to how mint tea works. It changes your palate to get rid of those pesky cravings that usually come knocking on your door after a meal.
According to research published in the Journal of Neurological and Orthopaedic Medicine:
“People who sniffed peppermint every two hours lost an average of 5 pounds a month. The mint flavors send signals to your brain that it’s time to stop eating”.
Now, you may look a little crazy sniffing peppermints all day, so stick to mint tea to help you lose the extra weight without looking too weird at the office.
Enjoy mint tea after a meal like lunch or dinner to keep afternoon and pre-bedtime cravings at bay.
