Is it true that sniffing banana peels will make you lose weight?

my friend was on a diet ad she told me this I don't think it's true but I don't really know...

I have heard and read many about many things that can make you lose weight, but I have never heard of weight loss through banana peel sniffing. Losing weight means you have to do something physically exhausting to lose the fat, and I'm positive you won't be losing any weight soon by sniffing banana peels. Perhaps if you substitute the sniffing with eating them as part of a healthy diet, something might happen.

SMELL BANANAS; LOSE WEIGHT!
Women exposed to the scent of bananas lost up to 17 pounds per month in a study at the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago. "The aroma triggers signals in the brain's satiety center," explains study author Alan Hirsch, M.D. "This fools your brain into sending the message that you're full, without the extra calories."
Here's a recipe for a super-slimming potpourri:

Soak 1/4 inch slices of 1 banana in lemon juice for 6 minutes. Place on a paper towel on a microwave- safe plate. In microwave, heat 5 mintues; cool. Place in a bowl with dried petals of 6 roses, 5 cinnamon sticks and 1/2 cup walnuts. Display wherever snack attacks strike.
