We all think of garlic as a flavouring really, we chop it up or crush it and toss it into sauces for everything from pesto to bolognaise. So many dishes are incomplete without their hit of the smelly stuff.
Garlic and weight loss? Yes indeed, research in Isreal has shown that its strong odour actually stimulates the brain to reduce hunger pangs and boosts the nervous system, which, in turn speeds up your metabolism.
So there you go, use the smelly stuff as much as you can.
