Thought for the Day--March 28, 2011: "Habituation", aka "Virtual Eating"

According to, it is possible to lose and maintain weight by "habituation," also known as "virtual eating."

What is "Virtual Eating?
Before eating a favorite food or even a meal, you first imagine eating it.

As you virtually eat, you "see" its color, "taste" its sweetness or saltiness, hear the sound of it as you slowly chew, and feel its texture.
The premise:
If you virtually pre-eat (in the sense of imagination eating, not eating a 0 food), you are likely to eat less of it because you have already enjoyed the sensual part of eating.

I don't know, but I plan to try it.

We all know that there is a powerful mind-body connection, so it does make sense.

I will let you know how it works out for me.

I think this is a cute cartoon, and oh-so-realistic:
