Hi from Chester, England coffee people.
My daughter and I have just been sitting down to a dinner I cooked (jacket spuds filled with cheese-yum!?).
After eating one half she turned round and announced “Cor, that was lovely, thanks.” Then realised there was another half waiting on the plate. I asked whether the second half was being consumed due to hunger or purely because it was tasty. “Both” she replied.
The biochemical mechanisms that transmit messages from the stomach to the brain (leptin) telling us that we are full cannot be stopped but they can be ignored, meaning we can continue to eat even though we are full.
Are you full up or do you sometimes continue eating because you like the taste?
