One of the great things about keeping the weight off is that you can’t eat as much as you want. How is that a blessing? What you can eat tastes so much better. When you only get a section of baguette for breakfast, it is possible to slow down and savor the flavor. I write this as I look at the small piece of bread before me. I am trying to convince myself it is true.
If you stop while you are ahead you don’t have a chance for your taste buds to get satiated and begin to deaden. It leaves you wanting more but if you think about it, the rest of the loaf won’t taste as good as the first part. Same bread, different you.
George M. Cohen had a song he wrote that had the words
“Always leave them laughing when you say goodby,Your taste buds are crying out for more. You body is crying out for less. Listen to your body and your taste buds will rejoice next time you listen to them.
Never linger long about
Or else you’ll wear your welcome out.”
