We are getting very close to “eating season,” with holiday meals and parties at every turn. Turkeys, pasta, pies, oh my! If you’re interested in enjoying yourself in the coming weeks, and you’re not looking to pack on the pounds, consider using these weight loss tricks from Yahoo Shine that really work:

Sniff a banana, apple or peppermint– As odd as it sounds, Researchers have found that the more frequently people sniffed, the less hungry they were and the more weight they lost.

Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table– A study found that eating in front of mirrors slashed the amount people ate by nearly one-third.

Surround yourself with blue– Believe it or not, the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant. Red, yellow and orange encourage eating.

Shoot your food– Weight loss experts have found that seeing a record of all your food helps you curb your intake.

Tie yourself up– Many French women wear a ribbon around their waist and underneath their clothes when they go out for dinner. It gets them to pay special attention to eating when the ribbon feels tighter as the evening goes on.

Read the full list from Yahoo Shine.
