Diet Tip: Curb Cravings With Mint

How a Little Mint Can Go a Long Way When It Comes to Weight Loss

Those Double Mint twins were onto something — mint may be just what you need to curb your cravings for a midnight snack or that second chocolate chip cookie. Due to mint's strong scent, it is a natural appetite suppressant that can be used to keep cravings at bay, said dietitian and nutritionist Cynthia Sass. It may all be psychological but it works; sipping on mint tea, chewing sugar-free mint gum, or simply brushing your teeth can save you calories and may help you drop a pant size — unfortunately, mint chocolate chip ice cream does not count. Give mint a try the next time you're longing for something sweet and salty, or check out some of these ideas to curb cravings.
