    Ok strange question I know but has anyone else noticed their sense of smell increase? Mine has always been good but now its a nightmare, if a colleague has had a cigarette I can't smell anything but..... And no before you all ask I am not pregnant!!!!

    My smell is very sensitive to smoke, i quit almost 2 years ago and now i can smell it miles off..

    its my taste buds that have significantly increased. Joe jokes i can tell the difference between pepsi max and diet pepsi when given it at a pub and not told... and things i found tasty pre-sw now i hate, and tastes bland to me now.

    Yup. I can smell if a colleague has opened a container with some fruit in it, or even a packet of crisps and tell them the flavour when Im way across the room!

    but is it stronger since you've been dieting, that is the only thing I can relate it to....... Hubby has always referred to me as sniffer dog - in the nicest possible way..... but its even stronger now......

    Weird, my taste and sense of smell seems to have decreased a little since starting the diet :/
