- No variation
- Tediously the same
Eating can, on occasion, become less of an enjoyment and more of a monotony. Food supplies proper nutrition and proper nutrition keeps us alive. End meet means.
But I cannot imagine what the people who choose to have tongue patches surgically implanted to limit themselves to a liquid diet must feel about their food. Monotony it must be - and torture. Listen to the description:
The medical procedure involves stitching a small piece of polyethylene mesh onto a patient's tongue, making it painful to ingest solid foods and forcing a low-calorie, liquid diet.Uh, ow? And duh, might I add. It's the same reason people after surgery lose weight - they're in pain and thus lose appetite. While the patch is removable, according to the article, I cannot see the association of food=pain going away. Perhaps that's the point, but when pay to become one of Pavlov's dogs?
I suppose, as I munch - pain free - on another turkey sandwich, that my monotony is not that bad.
