I am aware of the flavors in the first bite or two, but after that, not so much. I become almost compulsive. I think I have some fear of there not being enough, especially if I'm hungry, so I have a kind of urgent grasping, gulping desire- to eat my fill. But I rob myself of pleasant sensations this way, and I do it over and over and over and over.
I make a commitment to slow down my food consumption and remember to savor each bite.
