Aroma therapy works too so sweet scents are nice.

I am actually glad to hear about this, as I usually avoid even thinking about rich foods or sweets, because I then want to eat them and probably would! Perhaps, because I eat a very balanced diet, I usually do not have cravings, I eat plenty of fats, carbs, and protein yet stay within my caloric intake. As Kurt stated, maybe the body needs something in particular, that it's not getting...

Interesting, but I'm surprised to hear that it's "new" because people have been doing it -- maybe it's just the official study that's new.

It definitely works if you're eating a healthy diet.
It doesn't work if you have a legitimate craving for something because your body needs something in particular.

This trick definitely works for me. It's almost as good as being able to actually eat the treat sometimes.

"Stop trying not to think about that yummy treat because imagining eating it may actually reduce your desire to eat it! New research from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) contradicts the recognized wisdom that thinking about food will increase cravings. The study suggests that simply imagining the consumption of a food decreases one's appetite for it."
