Can you lose weight by sniffing apples and bananas?

i'm not retarded or trying to lose weight. this girl in science asked the teacher if you could lose weight by sniffing apples and bananas, and he made a face and said he doesnt know if its true or not. (she also thought thanksgiving was on friday lol)

is it true or just one of those myths that weird people make up?

    Well if smelling food and not eating it floats your boat then I guess you will lose weight. All a bit silly really!

    No. Even eating bananas and apples will not make you lose weight.

    However, some cases have shown that sniffing chocolate will make you GAIN weight -- so smell can come into place in that sort of a thing. But the study was done on obese women whose bodies knew what the chocolate would do, so I doubt it would cause EVERYONE to gain weight.

    Don't go sniffin apples :-)

    If it's not going down you throat, then I guess that's not eating at all, so one would assume you would lose weight?

    Apples & bananas are great healthy food...Most weight loss programs encourage the eating of healthy food + exercise

    Don't know if it works-and I heard it was lemons-but they say the smell is an appetite suppressant so she might not be mad after all!

    and,how much do u want to bet that all the people that say it's retarded go and try it?!

    Well I guess you would loose weight if all you did was sniff food, but then you would die since you wouldn't actually get any nutrition from the food. Just remember there is no such thing as a dumb question just dumb people.

    you won't lose any weight if you sniff those fruits and then go eat a box of Ho Ho's. smelling anything doesn't do anything - it's how many calories you consume and burn off that determines weight gain or loss. Period.
