I wish that worked for me... :smile:

Very interesting! I use this sort of thinking when I'm assaulted by a temptation to eat for the sensation rather than out of hunger. I'll be walking home, and then I'll think to myself 'a burger would go down really nicely right about now!' So I imagine that first bite of the burger, and the wonderful taste of the sauces etc, and then imagine it a second time, and it's a little less strong, and after about the 10th time I've curbed my desire for stimulation.

I guess we are all different Euclid. I dont eat hamburgers but if I transpose that scenario to a foodstuff I do eat that would have me rushing round to the nearest venue that serves it... :tongue:

Oh man, I love food too much so I won't even attempt to do this. No, I do not stuff junk food down my mouth or fantasise about food all day. :) I just really enjoy the search for and tasting of food from different cultures; I also really appreciate the inventiveness and artfulness involved in the preparation of some foods. In any case, it probably won't work for me.
