What I Like About Eating, and What I Miss

Here’s the triggers I get that light up my pleasure centers in my brain:

  • chewing
  • having my mouth full
  • gulping
  • flavor
  • feeling full

Now that I’m foregoing those pleasures, I’ve noticed them.

  • When I have broccoli, I can chew and have my mouth full, but I miss flavor.
  • When I have gum, I can chew and have flavor, but I miss gulping and feeling full
  • When I have my protein shake, I gulp and feel full, but I miss chewing
  • When I have my portion of chicken, I chew and gulp and there’s flavor, but I don’t feel full.
