To add to that, you can also brush your teeth immediately after eating while still wearing the noseclips (your dentist will be happy too), and then after rinsing out you can take off the nose clips.
That way the only bit of risidual flavor you may have in your mouth is toothpaste flavor rather than food flavor, and for me anyways, I don't find that I get any sort of "taste association" with it.
Question for all you noseclippers- I am trying noseclipping for the first time this week (have used the ELOO oilmilk method to lose weight in the past, and have seen myself creep up 7 pounds, and am trying to lose 10-15 to get to my goal weight).
This morning, I noseclipped my normal breakfast- steel cut oatmeal with blueberries. I was a bit concerned because I could taste some of the blueberries.
I brushed my teeth immediately after, because I had to go to work, and couldn't wear my noseclip there
Wanted to get out any extra oatmeal stuck in my teeth so I wouldn't taste it when the noseclip came off. I could DEFINITELY taste the toothpaste.
So my question is- if I am a supertaster (I am 99% this is me- my BF says I have superhero smelling powers), and can taste these things with a noseclip on, am I sunk? Or are these things I am tasting "tastes," and not "flavors," and they are ok?
Or in other words- should I not worry about what I taste if my nose seems to be plugged and most taste is gone? Is what I am tasting ok, because it falls into the flavorless/sweet category?
Second, do you find that the AS eventually goes away, like it does for the ELOO method? I usually have to "time" my oilmilk doses to make sure they last me until I go to bed- otherwise I get nasty bouts of insomnia to go along with my hunger.
Thanks in advance for all your advice. You are always a great resource, and I'm happy to be back on this forum!
