Participants who ate yogurt with olive oil showed higher concentrations of the satiety hormone serotonin in their blood and reported feeling less hungry compared with those who ate yogurt that contained other oils or fats, according to a study in Cell Metabolism. Researchers also found that participants who were given yogurt with olive oil aroma extracts ate fewer calories than did those who had plain yogurt, suggesting that the oil's scent played a role in lowering their intake.
