Those who can generate vivid mental imagery of foods based on smells could be at a higher risk of obesity, according to a new Yale study.
Researchers gave participants a series of questionnaires to determine how vividly they could imagine the sight, smell or idea of a food.
Their findings suggest the better people were able to imagine the smell of food, the higher their risk of food cravings and obesity.
