Crave Control: Cool or Not?

You all have some great ideas for curbing cravings, and some of you even gave the tip of lighting fragrant candles. While I am not sure this would work for me, a new company is definitely playing off the same theory.

Scentology's Crave Control ($24.99) is a time-released scent cue that is supposed to curb cravings for carbs (including chocolate, cake, and desserts) to help promote weight loss. The company claims that research has found that a vanilla scented patch curbed people's appetite for chocolate and induced a net weight loss of 2.5 lbs per person by reducing intake of sweets.

Hum, I'm still skeptical, but I do love vanilla . . . ice cream, macaroons, Frappuccinos...
