Suck a mint. Lose weight. It might be a thing.

Fad diets stink. We are not fans. Plain and simple. So please don’t think we’re pushing a ludicrous All-Mint Diet. No. Not at all. Not even close. Sure, VerMints are phenomenal and delicious. And we’ve been known to eat a whole tin for lunch, but… we’re big advocates for well-rounded health and wellness. So we’re just saying “Check this out!” It’s kind of neat.

Since the dawn of time (or since we’ve been recording interesting things), mint has been a natural appetite suppressant. When you feel a craving coming on, you can forgo the chocolate bar and chew on a couple of mint leaves, sip some mint tea, or suck on a VerMints Peppermint or Wintermint to give that craving the boot!

Bryan Raudenbush, PhD from the Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia and his research team found that the scent of peppermint provides the kick many of us need to forgo afternoon munchies. In fact, his preliminary research shows that subject who sniffed peppermint throughout the day ate 3,000 fewer calories per week. Whoa! That’s practically a pound!

Suck on a VerMints Peppermint or Wintergreen all afternoon and you might be able to bypass the afternoon munchies with your waistline unscathed.
