Default Losing my taste for food? Normal?

At the beginning of my journey I was constantly looking for new recipes, cheesy concoctions (I'm on Atkins) and eating quite a bit. I went through a long phase where I didn't want to eat at ALL due to stress, and now that my life has balanced out a bit more and I have my appetite back I've found that food just isn't that great anymore. I'd rather just have a quick salad for lunch than worry about slaving over some meal. I'd rather have a slice of cheese for a snack than prepare something elaborate. I feel like I eat for hunger now instead of taste because the taste is never really that great anyway. Sometimes I'll be sitting on my computer and think "Hm...I'm kinda hungry. Maybe I should eat." and then go grab some egg salad or something.

Is this normal? Has anyone else had this happen to them? I hope I stay like this! Not worrying about food 24/7 is a very welcome change.

For me, I lost my taste for meat and really a lot of my old favorites. I then fell in love with all sorts of foods, some a bit too much
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.

I've lost my taste for sea food and some cakes and brownies, especially the kind with really cheap frosting. I've never been big on fast food but I can eat it if I have to.

In some ways I have. I don't HAVE to have something right this second because I don't crave a lot of crap anymore. Every now and then, I desperately want chocolate, but I can sleep on it. I used to not be able to!
