"A final trick of variety: Since the pleasure of most foods is in the first few bites,
eat one thing on your plate at a time, at least at the start of the meal when you can concentrate
and enjoy the full flavors. The mouthful as melange (blend of foods) defeats the purpose of variety."
(French Women Don't Get Fat)
This is really true...and good advice.
I have eaten unconsciously.
I have ignored my hunger.
And I have neglected my taste buds.
I think I am ready to slow down and think about each taste.
That should not be so hard.
I have noticed food losing it's flavor. Especially ice cream.
Starting today, I am going to experiment and try to stop eating as soon as the taste vanishes.
I can't wait to see what happens.
My weight stayed the same this week.
I am not depressed, just determined to see the number go down next Tuesday.
