6 Psychological Tricks to Lose Weight That Seem Absurd but Really Work

4. If you’re hungry, smell bananas.

This may sound a little crazy, but it has actually been proven that smelling foods like apples, mint, or banana can fool your brain and make it believe that you’re eating.

A study involving 3,000 volunteers who smelled these foods when they were hungry found that their appetites decreased and the results were soon reflected on the scales. Amazing, huh?!

5. Blue is your new favorite color.

One recent study has shown that the color blue decreases appetite. So try some changes like decorating your table with a blue tablecloth, blue napkins, blue plates, and glasses.

This is called the psychology of colors, and there are colors that actually stimulate your appetite. But blue will do the opposite for you.

6. Eat in front of a mirror.

You’ll probably say it’s just ridiculous, but scientific facts assure that eating while looking at yourself in the mirror reduces the amount of food you eat to one-third.
