If you have been walking across a desert for two days with no food or water, you would pay an infinite amount for a drink of water.
You would pay less for the second glass.
And even less than that for a third glass.
And so on, until you would pay nothing.
Eating food is like that, even when we are not ravenously hungry or thirsty.
The flavor is contained within the first few bites. After awhile you are just finishing off a task.
A smaller dish or cone of ice cream offers the same satisfaction. I must remember that!
When on the road, split a meal and appetizer with someone or order smaller portions, such as tapas.
Remember, it takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it has had enough.
For meals at home, switch to smaller plates. You WILL eat less.
