Do Your Food Cravings and Favorite Flavors Indicate Your Personality? Plus an Introduction to the Sensa Diet

Can We Have No Secrets From the World? Even Our Taste Buds Give Us Away?

Is nothing sacred? It seems as though someone somewhere in the world can tell everything about us from what would seem like totally benign preferences, physical attributes, or behaviors.

Not long ago I wrote an article titled “Does Eye Color Indicate Intelligence and Personality?” Many psychologists are convinced that they can connect a person’s eye color and iris pattern to personality and intelligence.

If that is not enough, now we have Dr. Alan R. Hirsch, a neurologist, insisting that it is possible to determine personality traits by studying a person’s preferred food flavors.

Not only that, but Dr. Hirsch has designed a diet that satisfies a person’s favorite flavors that he says his research has proven will encourage weight loss without making any changes to one’s diet or exercise routines. In other words, you can eat what you want and exercise more or not at all and still lose weight on his diet.

Some Affects of Smell

Pink Grapefruit Can Improve a Woman’s Looks

A study done by The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation demonstrated that the smell of grapefruit affects age perception. “In the presence of the smell of pink grapefruit, women appear to be six years younger [to men] than their real age.”

More Scent Trivia

It is believed that sexual activity improves a person’s sense of smell. In turn, an increased sense of smell increases sexual desire. Round and round it goes . . .


Wearing a blend of vanilla and cinnamon can enhance the attraction of the opposite sex.


The scent of chili peppers can increase sexual desire.

The SENSA Diet or Sprinkle Diet

Dr. Hirsch is the developer of the SENSA diet or what is sometimes referred to as the Sprinkle Diet, which is based on the premise that satisfying a person’s cravings, or preferred flavors and smells, will result in weight loss.

The SENSA diet involves purchasing food flakes that are sodium, sugar, and calorie free and then sprinkling them onto one’s food, which enhances the smell and flavor of the food. The idea is that one’s brain and stomach are fooled into believing a person’s favorite foods and flavors are being consumed.

Other than sprinkling the food flakes developed by Dr. Hirsch onto one’s food, no diet or exercise changes are required.

Does SENSA really help a person lose weight? Wendy Bassett, an accountant in Tyler, Texas, said it worked for her and she lost 30 pounds in just 4 months by sprinkling the SENSA flakes on food she normally eats. The product works by tricking the brain of the user into believing s/he is full.

In addition to creating the SENSA Diet, Dr. Hirsch is the founder and director of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, Illinois. He has conducted more than 200 research studies relating to sensory impressions and disorders, and neurological reactions to sensory input over the last 25 years that included some 18,000 participants.

SmellandTaste.Org states that “Many of these studies have explored how enhancing certain smells and tastes can impact eating patterns, mood, perception and even learning speed. In addition, Dr. Hirsch is currently conducting more than 80 studies on the effects of smell and taste on weight loss, sleep, consumer preferences, and sexual habits, among many other topics.”

What Your Favorite Food Flavors Say About You

Dr. Hirsh has also written a book titled, “What Flavor Is Your Personality?” That is the main subject of this article. What our favorite flavors say about us, and our personalities.

What Flavor Indicates YOUR Personality?

Do You Love Spicy Foods?

If You Prefer Spicy Foods

You may be a perfectionist. Details matter. You like order. Being organized at all times is a must and disorder drives you crazy. You may be a control freak and a neatnik, at least where your own life is concerned. You sleep better when your towels are all folded and stacked perfectly in the linen closet, and the spaces between the hangers in your closet are uniform. If anything peeves you more than disorder it is wasting time. – your time being wasted by people and events beyond your control.

Are Sweets Your Favorite Foods?

If you prefer sweets to all other foods, you may be the sort of person who enjoys making entrances and being seen as important.

If You Prefer Sweets

You like to be noticed and appreciated more than the average. You like to stand out and feel special and be considered special by other people. You love adventure and risk. You like to do the wild things that other people do not have the chutzpah or the nerve to do. You are self-indulgent and love a good time. Nothing is too good or too expensive, decadent or elaborate for you. You prefer to regret (which you all but never do) what you have done, rather than what you have not done.

Do You Love Salty Foods Best?

People who love salty foods tend to believe in predestination, and fate.

If You Prefer Salty Foods

You are a person who believes in fate and that you have little if any control over your own life and how it will play out. You believe things happen because they are meant to happen, and that there is very little that you can do to make any difference or to change the direction your life is predestined to go. If you do something, or not, it is because you were meant to do it – or not.

Do You Prefer Foods That Are Sweet and Salty?

People who prefer foods that are both sweet and salty tend to be introverts.

If You Prefer a Combination of Sweet and Salty

If you think chocolate dipped potato chips or pretzels are yummy, or you love to mix salted nuts and chocolate chips, this may be your flavor personality. Chocolate chip cookies may be a favorite too, since they often have just the right balance of sweet and salty.

You are an introvert possibly to the extent of being a loner. You may seem standoffish or even snobbish to many other people even though that is not usually the case. You are generally highly intelligent, very creative, and sometimes lack patience with people of lesser ability in whatever talents or skills you have. You tend to be a very private person.

Do you think the personality description connected to your favorite food above fits you?

If You Prefer Chocolate

If you prefer milk chocolate:

You are an introvert who prefers a good book to a party. You are quiet and sometimes mistaken for shy. Peaceful activities are preferable to loud noisy affairs.

If you prefer dark chocolate:

You are the life of the party. You are the first to dive into a new project and lead the effort. You love to socialize.

Aphrodisiac Scents

Jasmine is said to be an aphrodisiac when not used in excess.

Ways That Scent Can Affect Sexual Desire

Men are aroused by the scents of lavender and pumpkin pie. Women (and men too) are more sexually reactive to cucumber and black licorice. The smell of banana nut bread seems to have a similar affect as well.

Other scents that work well as aphrodisiacs when not used in excess or combined together include vanilla, peppermint, and jasmine.

Askmen.com

Your Nose Knows Who Will Make a Good Reproductive Partner

Another way your nose determines who you are sexually attracted to is explained in this article: Evolutionary Psychology: Your Nose Chooses Your Mate – Chemistry Is More Important Than You Thought

Vanilla Plant in Bloom

Vanilla is another scent that when not used to excess is considered an aphrodisiac.  Men are said to love it, especially when combined with just the right amount of cinnamon.

Conclussion:

Keep in mind that very few things are 100%. The only real guarantee in this world is -- and I am sorry if this depresses anyone – death. Not even taxes are guaranteed. Some people do not pay any. Ever.

So if you find you do not fit neatly into any of these descriptions by Dr. Hirsch, take heart. Not all of us are so easily defined. I do not fit into them nice and neat. I am definitely sweet and salty, but somehow the chocolates seemed to have gotten crossed where I am concerned.

I like dark chocolate, but I am not a party girl, never was, and cannot imagine myself as the life of any party. The description for milk chocolate fits me pretty well, so the descriptions for the chocolates, in my case, seem to be reversed. While I like milk chocolate, dark chocolate is my favorite. Oh well, it was fun though, wasn’t it?

Au fait, I came back to share this again. This is most interesting.

I am still sweet but seem to have lost the desire for salt and yes, chocolate still gives me a headache.

I had planned to publish another hub today, but since my Hubber has dropped again, maybe not. I think you have some written, is that the same reason that you are not publishing?

I hope that all is well with you.

Paula (fpherj48), I think when all is said and done that for most of us there isn't a magic bullet or any short cuts that really work. We all have to diet and exercise and take solace in our chocolate on occasion. Glad you enjoyed this article. I usually look at things like this as something just for fun. Maybe there really is something to the tastes and smells and weight loss and Lord knows what else, but it seems a little too easy, and you know they say it if seems too good to be true . . .

Well, there were a couple in that first 10 comments I found in my spam folder that were several months old. That bothers me because I don't want anyone to think I'm ignoring them or don't appreciate them, etc. I would prefer that HP let me decide what if any comments should go into spam instead of playing big brother.

What a great topic to present! You never run out of interesting ideas. I truly enjoyed reading of the possibilities that our favorite tastes may tell something about us. How right you are, Au fait....very little is sacred any more. All of our secrets are out!

I'd have one heck of a time figuring this out. I actually love "food" in general. I can honestly crave a particular taste at various times and like them all. I always chalked that up to either my mood at the moment or the kind of day I'm having. LOL (any excuse to eat chocolate will do)

Whatever any of this says about me, it appears I'm doomed if I think any of this information will help me lose weight! I've always had to bite the bullet and follow a diet & exercise plan! Yuk!

A fun hub to read, Au fait......UP+++

Au Fait This is quite revealing even if one does not feel that it is 'true.' That does not matter really; it is fun just to read and consider---to sit where we fit in this model if at all.

Mary615, thank you for coming by, reading and commenting on this article. In fact I had not heard about Dr. Hirsch being in a lawsuit and I'm glad you let me know. I have no TV, so sometimes I don't get the news as quickly as other people.

I Googled Dr. Hirsch and it would seem to be much worse than you mentioned. The Federal Trade Commission has won a settlement with the marketers of the Sensa Diet AND Dr. Hirsch has been ordered to stop marketing his product (scented flakes) as a weight-loss aid.

The ban on marketing as a weight-loss aid is because the FTC says Dr. Hirsch does not have sufficient proof and has not done sufficient satisfactory studies to back up his claims.

This decision is a big deal. It's putting a big damper on the Sensa Diet and supplement business. It is putting all of Dr. Hirsch's claims, regardless of what they pertain to, into question.

Appreciate your letting me know. If I just live long enough I will have to get an update on this article. I have several others that need that as well.

Hezekiah, everything about a person adds up to their personality. It is their likes and dislikes, their ideas and beliefs that make them who they are and who they is a big part of their personality. As far as determining a person's personality solely by the flavors they prefer, that is Dr. Hirsch's idea, and he is correct most of the time, but not all of the time. :)

Diogenes, (Bobby) thank you for stopping by! Agree that not only do eyes speak of the intelligence behind them, but I believe they tell you who their owners are as well.

I think no matter how fine your clothes or how thick your makeup, your eyes will tell on you. Insightful people can see a person's character and often even if one is telling the truth or not, just by observing the eyes. Body language can be helpful, but the eyes have it. Hope you are well! xx

Reread. I just wanted to add I am convinced you can tell a person'ts intelligence from the look of (and in) their eyes. Of course, it may be it's just that their expression suits your expression, if you get my meaning. But some eyes are so dead (usually in celebrities) and some are full of life, mystery, compassion, humor and understanding??

Once again you have put together an interesting article that will fascinate my followers. I'm going to share this. In addition, I bought the SENSA product, but only used a little of it and then got out of the habit of sprinkling it on my food. I'm going to go back to trying it.

Vespawoolf, thank you for reading and commenting on this article, and for the up vote! The trouble I think is that most people like a variety of flavors and to get your personality you must settle on the one you love best of all.

In addition to the woman I mentioned in this article having good results with the SENSA diet, one of my coworkers told me just last week that a friend of hers had used the SENSA diet to lose 30 pounds over 6-7 months. Took a while, but the results were positive, and the point of the diet is that you don't have to change your diet or exercise habits to succeed.

Thank you for reading and commenting moonlake! Also for voting on and sharing this article. Dark chocolate does have to be mixed with the right filling or 'other' or it tastes downright nasty (just my opinion). I love it with chocolate covered cherries and Lindor truffles. By itself, not so much.

As I'm sure you know, dark chocolate is supposed to be good for your heart, but on the other hand, the way I like it with the sweet cherries or truffle fillings, the added sugar may be canceling out the advantages . . .

Thank you Shyron for reading and commenting on this article, and for voting on it and pinning and sharing it!

I think most people love a variety of different flavors, but for this to work a person must choose their favorite of favorites and that is the one that rules in this case. It doesn't matter what you eat or don't eat, but what flavors do you love best? Even if you can't eat them for some reason. I'm sweet/salty if I must choose.

Thank you Shyron, for being my best friend!

I love chocolate, sweets, spicy foods and sometimes salty, so now I understand, Au fait, why there may be so MANY dimensions to my personality. :)

Verrrry interesting. Thanks for this insight, au fait. No one but you could pull this sort of hub off. Great job. I love sweet and salty, and I am a bit of an introvert. Must be true!

Au fait such an interesting hub spicy foods is my best choice, then dark chocolates. I try to eat everything but in moderation and daily exercises help the most for me. I avoid sitting down for too many hours standing and being active is a way to keep control of ones weight and diet. Great suggestions and you have again surprised me with another one of your great hubs. Voted up, useful and interesting.

I prefer dark chocolate mostly but I'm afraid I'm far from being the life of the party hehehehe, I love being with people though I also enjoy spending time alone. Anyway it's just fun to read them. I like to crave on sweets so it's true, I love to be self-indulgent most of the time :)

Interesting collection of pure bullswipe! If this were true, I would have every trait in the book and then some. Dr Hirsch is playing the credulous like a harp(ie).

PS I also like dark choc and I am not the life and soul of my tool shed!

I always find your articles informative and interesting. I've never heard of the SENSA diet, but this was interesting. I have to say that the profile seemed general and didn't fit me all that well. That said, it would be interesting to see if the diet works for those who try it. Voted up!

Au fait, another amazing hub, I am voting up UFABI, sharing and pinned to my Amazing HubPage board.

I am a sweet/salty but I try not to have sugar or salt, and you may have guessed that chocolate gives me a migraine.
