I have not checked here in a while, so I am coming in late to this discussion. But I love what people are writing.
For me, I find that just realizing that I am not supposed to do it makes me aware, right at the last second, like you are saying. When I am being very careful and strict, I will not put it in my mouth. I have even spit out food if I realize it too late!
Most of the time though, I am not as careful (after two and a half years). I think that the habit makes your eating better in general, and it is very important to be strict at the beginning. And I have recently recommitted to Beck, and in the last few weeks, I have almost caught myself eating while cooking. Usually I decide NOT to put it in my mouth. But - TRUE CONFESSIONS - I am right now making an apple dish with cut up apples and raisins and cinnamon, which I then microwave. It is delicious. Anyway, I just took a bite of one of the apple cores. It could be a lot worse. But still, I like the fact that I am AWARE that I did this and that it is not the best approach to eating!
Sparkfully Yours, Judi
