A SNIFF of lemon made people feel slimmer, a study found.

University of Sussex researchers looked into how smell influences our perceptions of ourselves.

Scents could be worked into “smart clothes” to combat mental and eating disorders, they reckon.

It is believed nearly 3.5 million people in the UK suffer with an eating disorder, and around 30 million in the US.

Lead author Giada Brianza said the findings could be used to “enhance people’s self-confidence and recalibrate distorted feelings of body weight.”


The findings to the study were presented at an international conference in Cyprus.
