The Pepe Le'Pew Theory

Answered on August 19, 2014

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)?

Yeah, even without taste I've always had the "feed a cold" syndrome. Tend to eat a lot more.

The lack of reward didn't stop me from eating, though. That was in my SAD days and I kept searching for foods that still tasted good. Sorry, Stephan!

I've already done the "cold shut down my nose" thing and I didn't enjoy it. Even the few things I could still taste were weird because the part of the flavor you smell was gone. Ychh!

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.
