Default A weird random thought

I realized that fruit cocktail (in pear juice, not syrup) for dessert is actually really, really sweet! It has been about a week since I've had anything sugarry. We have been "treating" ourselves to sugar-free Jell-O for dessert, which is also really good. But boy that fruit was SWEET!

It made me think - I have always been a big fan of chocolate. ANY kind of chocolate. And I know others have tasted a chocolate dessert and said something like, "Whoa, that's really rich", and I didn't get that at all. Is that because I was so used to eating chocolate daily that its sweetness/richness didn't really register with me?
My ultimate goal:

My fourth 10-pound mini-goal:

One for every 10 pounds lost:

I've had that same experience. I don't know if there is any science behind it. My guess would be if you use the same taste buds all the time eating the same foods, maybe you burn them out? Sort of like the way mom's can't smell dirty diapers after a while? Just a guess!

You tastes change as you change your diet - I've lost the taste for many things as I've not had it for a while. It's good though! I think lots of veggies almost cleanse my pallet .. if that somehow makes sense!


November Goal: 2.5 down / 2.5 to go!

yes that is exactly right! It's cause your taste buds grew unaccustomed to sugars, so when you placed sugars back on them, they're like "wow". They're heightened.

yeah that happened to me too. I was so used to eating sweets that it didn't register that something was rich. Now when I eat them I'm ok with just a little cuz they'll seem overpoweringly rich. it makes it easier to know when to stop so it's a plus!
