No, it's the only thing that seems natural to me. I've tried eating more slowly, it doesn't work. The only time I can 'eat slowly' is when I'm full and piddling with the leftovers.

I got into the habit of taking a sip of liquid [for me it is a mix of stevia and lemon juice in water] between each bite. and also remembered to chew at least 10 times before swallowing. that helped a bit.

I've tried that sort of thing. But it just doesn't feel right. I can't explain it.

a change of habit feels mightily dislocating for a good long time, until one day you discover you don't notice it anymore, it feels normal again. my fingers are still getting used to playing a guitar, one of these days they'll get used to it. took me a while to change my diet and eating style also, it was VERY dislocating and I felt grumpy for a good long time until one day it became normal.

Maybe true. For now, I gots real big things to take care of first. And, my eating has been so sparse for the last 15 or so months, it's a bit moot for the time being. :(

Bubba, I think that ANY positive thoughts coming my way are always welcome. From any creed or culture, it is always their best wishes. I appreciate it greatly :) I feel sad that you would have to ask that. I understand it. But it does make me sad.

I don't get an opportunity to eat one food at a time anymore. My dear mother, bless her, just creates these meals which throw all this random crap into one monster of a food item.

You, or anybody else will never have to ask that of me. And, I send my own good wishes back. I don't know what to call it.

Although raised in a Protestant household, my parents never took us to a church that had any hellfire and brimstone. We were taken to churches where there was actual dialogue.

But, when asked to describe my spiritual beliefs, it's always said to be more Buddhist or something similar.

At least a carnivorous Buddhist...LOL

Well, just about can't avoid veggies or fruit. But, I do avoid them at all chances possible.

Yeah...I think that I am at that point too health wise. But making that change is proving to be very difficult. Between bad appetite or processing issues, I just have a difficult time with food right now. It has to be the thing I am craving. It's either a textural craving or a specific taste/texture craving. Veggies and fruits aren't in that mix.
