Okay, so are there any foods that you used to enjoy or even love but now can't stand?
An example: Tonight my hubby slathered some wine cheese onto a cracker and offered me some. I kinda looked at it with a thought of "eww". But, I didn't want to seem unthankful so I took a bite. I didn't finish it, he did. I was pretty grossed out by it. It's not that I purposefully cut out wine cheese, but I haven't had it in so long and it just about made me gag.
I still like wine and cheese and crackers, just not the wine cheese anymore LOL

I'm sure I'm not the only one out there. Ideas?

Pre-made salisbury steak. I used to eat it a lot as a kid, but one week my mother had to go get a surgery, and that was all dad made us all week for dinner (and ramen.. but weirdly I'm not sick of that. :P )

I can eat it, but on rare occasion.

I get grossed when I see fries that coat the container with grease. It makes me gag. Greased up hamburgers also gross me out. Egg rolls gross me out a little bit too. Anything by Mcdonald's (after I watched Supersize Me). Most of TGI Friday's food (after reading Eat this, Not that and seeing the calories posted in New York) but their cobb salad I will not give up.

i literally had this experience five minutes ago. a double chocolate donut and a vanilla iced coffee. used eat this almost everyday on the way to work. had plenty of calories left over tonight, thanks to a good workout... so i decided to splurge.

I still have plenty of calories left, lol ;-) couldn't finish them. just gross.

I also had a donut disgust moment recently. I was at my mom's house & craving something sweet really bad. I found a box of glazed donuts and thought I'd just have one bite. Ended up spitting it out. It tasted nasty. Just so artificial and fried and sickly sweet. If only I could have that reaction to other bad for me foods!

Fortunately, or unfortunately, we have 2 places within walking distance that make their own donuts. Those babies are DELICIOUS! But, it is a rare treat. When I go to places that cook premade donuts, I don't bother anymore. I used to eat them until I found the fresh places. Now the premade ones sound icky!

Fast food beef, I haven't had beef from a fast food place in over 3 years. Most fast food chicken - liquid margarine as an ingredient? Really? I use to love Stovetop stuffing but I made it the other day and it was terrible, super salty.

There are some things, regardless of ingredients, I will still eat on occasion - nacho cheese sauce, yum, that stuff is like artifically processed gold.

I uses to drink Pepsi a lot especially in the summer but I have cut out soda since deciding to lose weight. So last weekend I didn't think drinking one soda would do any harm so I grabbed a can of Pepsi. I took two sips and I started feeling sick to my stomach! I put the can down grabbed some water and it went away about 30 min later.

It's not so much grossed out, as just really a big difference in taste. Im a big fanof chips. And since I changed my food intake a few weeks ago - chips taste so much more SALT. Like, way too salt. I still like it.. but less each time. lol. And I also am super thirsty afterwards.

Yeah, had a similar experience, though I didn't have the intention of drinking an entire can, I just stole a swig from my husband to swallow a pill down. The Pepsi tasted disgusting, very artificial and metallic tasting. And it was regular Pepsi, not diet. It was pretty jolting to the senses, I wasn't expecting it to be so unpleasant. But it keeps me from craving it too badly!

I notice this as well! The other thing is sugary desserts. Since most days I don't have too many sugary treats anymore, when I do have full sugar stuff I notice the difference! I still like them, but don't eat as much because it gets too sugary!

Chinese food. We used to eat it all the time and the very thought of it makes me want to gag. I will make my own stir fry but to actually order Chinese food....bleck!!!

I used to love cupcakes (vanilla cake) with buttercream frosting. I was food shopping the other day and smelled some in the bakery and it seriously almost made me sick. I just have no taste for sugary desserts anymore, lol. Weird or what?!?

I only WISH there was something that I felt was gross, but I love all the foods I used to eat. :( I'm a food addict and nothing grosses me out. The only time I get that feeling is if I do a binge and eat until I'm nauseated.

Nothing that I used to enjoy grosses me out, but the cravings for them have stopped (for the most part). :)

After a big night out my sweetheart likes to have McDonalds for breakfast...So normally we'd BOTH have it. Now I can barely stand the smell of it, and the thought of eating a McMuffin? Blech!

I made biscuits and sausage gravy today, something I used to love...now? The crazy amount of salt grossed me out and I felt yucky all day. Time to move on, I think. They say our tastebuds change every 7 years...

I also have an issue with donuts, every now and then I try one and they just taste of oil to me. Most fried foods make me feel ill as well as the taste of oil is overpowering :barf:

I have to third it on McDonalds. The grease smell alone, no matter if it is breakfast or burgers...is nauseating. I have not had a big mac for a million years. I think for me its more about my tastes having changed rather than dieting, but who knows? I used to be a diet pepsi nut too; stopped that a long time ago and now its just gross to me.

Definitely sugary-laden foods: donuts, muffins, cookies, cupcakes, etc. As much as I still crave them especially around TOM, it's just not worth it to me to work out like I do and feed my body with crap, lol.

Ranch dressing, I used to eat it every day. I'd eat pizza just so I could dip it in the Ranch dressing. I was addicted to it for 10 years then at the beginning of my pregnancy I tried making the "homemade" version where you mix the packet with mayo and it was so disgusting and it turned me off for good from the stuff. I think the msg is what I was addicted to also, so just knowing that makes me not want to ever have it again--the Kraft or Hidden Valley. But I DO still eat the dip cups if I get Pizza Hut, just don't eat it every day anymore.

Fast Food Fries--the only thing I liked from those places. Ew.
Icees/slurpees. I used to drink them like they were going out of style. Now they are too sugary, I can't stand more than a sip.
Cake/Icing--too sweet!

My sister and I had gone to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and usually the smells from all the food places smell soooo good. Its weird because now they smell offensive. The grease alone stopped me from wanting any of it. But because Im a fat kid, I did stop to look at the candy apples (my favorite)
but It smelled like burnt sugar, not happy sugar. Curbed any want of junk food that day. We had made a cake for my brother and the smell of it was heavenly and the chocolate frosting was making me drool. I was standing firm, but wanted it soooo bad. Finally she took some frosting shoved it in my
mouth and said "there, now you wont crave it" she was right, it was so sweet and nasty tasting. Thank goodness for tough love.

luckymommy-I hear YOU!

This, 1000 times.

I think one is more likely to experience this change of tastes if your plan involves radically changing the type of food you eat. If you got fat on fast food, processed junk food, and sugary treats, then your tastes may indeed change after you eat mostly whole foods for a while. After you'd eaten real food for a while, the old stuff can start to seem too greasy, too artificial or chemical tasting, and not flavorful enough (tasting only of salt and fat, or sugar or fat, with no other flavors).

Me, I got fat mostly on real food - just too damn much of it! :dizzy: I've made small changes in the "what" I eat but for the most part my weight loss has come from controlling the "how much" - I haven't had to make radical changes in the food choices themselves though. I never found fast food particularly appetizing and I still don't! However, the food I got fat on is still as appetizing as ever.

grossed out? Not especially- they still tend to be quite tempting. However, when I do indulge, I find that most of the time they make me sick. The feeling is just terrible!

there are so many things that when I go to the grocery store I won't even buy anymore because it just seems so nasty, honestly makes me want to gag when I think about eating it..
Crazy how that all works!!!

Anything made by Lean Cuisine and other frozen diet meal companies (except for a few select organic brands). I finally read the ingredient panel :lol: Plus I received an email from someone that worked in the Lean Cuisine plant (a member here) that described how they made their chicken. That was the first step towards vegetarianism for me :eek: Investigating how the rest of the food was made was a definite turnoff.
