Here’s the triggers I get that light up my pleasure centers in my brain:
- having my mouth full
- 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.
