The olfactory system plays a huge part in sending hunger signals to our brains and when we're inundated with smells it can trigger those signals telling ourselves that we are full whether we have eaten or not. I'm sure someone far more intelligent than myself can give you the specific science behind it. Nice job turning out a proper meal though!

Well, tonight i decided to cook a xmas dinner, i felt like it and i occasionally do odd things like. I spend ages making it, and i have to say it was very nice. However when i came to eat it, my appetite was completely gone. It has happened to me before and its usually (but not always) when im cooking a large meal.
Does anyone know if there is a scientific reason for it ? or am i just weird. cos it doesnt make sense.
