Food preparation during the two-hour window can present problems for those who possess limited willpower like I do.

The other day I was slicing some vegetables during a two-hour window. I was planning on cooking and eating them later, but during the prep work I had to make a conscious effort to avoid the normal nibbling that would usually occur.

It occurred to me that this would also be a big problem if I was doing actual cooking during the two-hour window, as the "tasting" that is usually part of the process would have to be avoided.

So far this has not been a problem -- I've yet to do much real cooking during this period (I don't do that much cooking at all anyway). But I can easily see how this could be a real problem for those cooks out there.

Fortunately it's only the tastes that "count", not the smells. Otherwise maintaining the two-hour window would be pretty much impossible.
