Alimentary Alliesthesia is an interesting phenomena and involves ‘the awareness of how the perception of sensory input, palatability and pleasure during the act of eating changes over time.’
It’s also easier thought of as: the first mouthful of something is always generally perceived the most intensely.
Ever notice how sometimes food, or a meal loses its ‘tastiness’ over time while in the experience of it? Sort of like our senses change the way they are responding.
Well, this is it!
Mindful eating includes maintaining awareness during eating so as to notice when the food ceases to be as palatable or enjoyable.
