Hey, Heidi, I tried your enlightened tasting this morning and it was very interesting. First I chewed a half piece bread and spit it out. Then I tried some berries, which gave a very pleasant and intense flavor before I spit them out. I then rinsed with water to clear my mouth. At first, I thought, this is almost like eating, with the same nice tastes. After that, I did not notice anything for a while, but about 15 minutes I felt full, just like I would after eating a normal meal!
I'm not sure I would call this deconditioning, since I don't know that it made me like bread or berries any less. But it did get rid of any hunger or cravings and left me feeling full. And I felt a certain lightness about the whole thing. I was not sure what to expect, and am wondering if you had a similar experience or something different.
