Do the First Few Bites Really Taste the Best?

Well, inspired by yesterday's post, I tried to be really conscious of my portion size, and it actually sort of worked! I think one key was to make sure that I ate consistently throughout the day and didn't go for too long a stretch without eating anything. I also thought about something that I have heard a lot when people talk about portion control: The first couple bites taste the best. Well, I am actually not sure I completely agree with that one. The fifth bite and beyond actually tastes darn good to me! BUT, if I ask myself if I am truly hungry and consciously put a small amount on my plate in the first place, I can be satisfied with a lot less (but still a lot more than 3-4 bites!). We'll see how it goes today... :)

Be well,
