I Think My Taste Buds Are Dead

I have recently decided to embark on an adventure to change my eating habits. I am not quite gung ho yet, because I simply dread taking that next step. I know that I will go through my standard three week sugar and no bad food withdrawal before I will even remotely feel like I am human.

Exercise sucks for the first few weeks, and even then I often find myself praying for my one hour to be over. You know you do it too! It isn’t fun…and the people who say its fun are usually the people who are twigs. I don’t enjoy it, and yes it may be mind over matter, but it still sucks.

Eating the actual healthy fruits and vegetables isn’t really all that bad, since I usually like them. But I think my taste buds are dead from all the processed crap that I eat. A piece of fruit doesn’t even remotely taste sweet at all. When I was feeling my best before I had the boys, I was working out and feeling great. Id go for an apple and it tasted like chocolate.

Eating healthy is difficult, because it costs more, and meal preparations take longer. Eating out of a box is certainly faster, but it isn’t the greatest for your body. And I think maybe there is a big conspiracy between health insurance companies, the grocery stores, and fast food chains. There aren’t coupons for lettuce or tomatoes, I can go to McDonalds and buy a full meal for 5.00, yet if I fix a healthy meals I spend way more. It’s all ass backwards. We all need to go back to living off the land, like I can envision myself hunting and gathering in the woods, in the freezing weather.

So my taste buds are dead, and I need to get them back in order, to where bad food tastes like crap, and the healthy stuff tastes good again. I’m praying for the motivation and the will to pass up my favorite chocolate and go for the apples. Wish me luck! I think I can, I think I CAN, I THINK I CAN.

    You know you can, you know you can….Give up carbs and see how quick the weight comes off. I lost 65lbs. within about 6 months. Good Luck!!

  2. You are absolutely right. It does cost more to eat healthier. That’s the bad part!

  3. You can do it! I am right there with you. I am a soda junkie…..water tastes so boring. I am trying to switch to all natural teas with honey, that isn’t bad. But yeah, fruits and veggies? not nearly as sweet as my chocolaty granola bars. But we can conquer!

    I still have my sweet tooth to battle with. I try to take away anything made with flour, it seems to help with a little weight loss, but when I started eating them again.. it is just a battle to try to cut back on them.

    I am sooo with you. Healthy food just does not taste good to me. I need for that to change also. Good luck to you! Dieting is so hard, but the key is to find a good support system so you keep your motivation. Hang in there!

    Start with fruit- like sweet strawberries and tart cherries, etc. THESE will get your taste buds in the right direction! Then later when you get to veggies again, add a touch of organic butter or olive oil onto steamed veggies. I LOVE that! HTH.

    So, how’s it going? It does take a little bit to change your perception of food but the change is SO worth it!
