The Aroma of Fruits Leads us to Eat Healthy

Translated by
Eating Healthy

Time and again we are faced with the choice of eating something healthy or something unhealthy but very delicious. Anyone that has faced this choice has made compromises and felt tempted by unhealthy, caloric foods. Scientists from France claim that there is a way for high-calorie foods to be ignored.

The experts' idea is for us to smell various fruits before dinner. If we smell a pear, apple or some other fruit prior to eating, this will help our brain pick out healthy food afterwards, say scientists.

This study emphasizes the significance of the aroma of each and every dish, as well as to what extent it would be able to affect our choice, explain psychologists. Researchers claim that there is ever more attention being paid to healthy food in French restaurants.

The menus of restaurants have been becoming ever healthier, which is a big help to people who want to eat quality food and are watching their weight.

Experts postulate that a customer's desire arises not from the appearance of a specific dish but rather the aroma that wafts from it. In other words - if there is a bowl of fruit found on the table before dinner, this will definitely help the person choose the healthier food.


Everyone knows that they need healthy foods to be toned and in prime health. At times though, the temptation is just too much. Often when on a diet, we are tempted by a delightful scent and we think, "What could possibly happen if I treat myself just this once? "

Any detour from the path we've chosen is a question of will, but here is the list of foods that people most frequently ruin their diets with:

- Fried cheeses are among the favorites. They are a fine choice, not just as an appetizer but as a main course as well, making them an even greater temptation.

- The next food that often entices us because of its appetizing appearance is burgers.

- Fried fish and fried chicken are no less tantalizing.

- Chocolate is the product that has led to no small number of diets being stopped. All types of sweet temptations also fall into this category, including cakes, pastries, cookies etc.
