How many times have you gone out to dinner or sat down to a meal and over-ate? Or made food choices that you weren’t intending?
I know, I’ve done it too.
When you sit down to eat and you’re starving, or when you see that menu item that sounds just amazing, it’s hard NOT to overindulge.
The cool thing I want you to know is that there is a trick you can do to stop this and stay in control of your food choices!
When you go out to eat and order the deep-fried basket o’goodies, it should be because you’re intentionally choosing it, not because you’re giving in to cravings and will regret the decision later!
Same goes for eating too much. Feeling miserably stuffed after a meal is never worth it.
This trick will prevent both!
If you’d rather watch than read, here is the video explaining!
If you’d rather read, here you go:
Here’s what you do. Add a drop or two of Peppermint essential oil on your tongue a few minutes before you eat or sit down to order your meal. This not only reduces cravings, it reduces over-eating.
How does that work?!
Paraphrasing a doctor who understands the complicated role of essential oils on the brain…. Peppermint essential oil ‘confuses’ the brain for a good 10 minutes. It basically affects the receptors in the brain and short-circuits cravings and the desire to over-eat.
When you drop Peppermint on your tongue before you pile your plate full of food or order the double cheeseburger, this ‘brain break’ gives you a chance to follow through with your intentions to eat a reasonable portion. You no longer make decisions fueled by cravings.
Keep Peppermint essential oil in your purse and remember to use it before you walk into that restaurant!
