If you subscribe to Food Reward Theory, would there be anything gained (well, lost, I mean, in terms of bodyfat) by having one day a week where all meals are eaten with a pinched nose? I know that nose pinching is part of the practice (according to Seth Roberts), but would it be a waste of time doing it just one day a week (although for the whole day)?
Next time you have a cold with stuffed sinuses, see what the effect is and please report back. :)
But if true, things like essential oils, vanilla, etc. are out the door. At least for those trying to slim down.
