i spent three months traveling. i ate whole wheat bread, cheese, tomatoes, nutella, granola bars and 2 minute noodles for three months. i mostly drank water, tea and some coke zero. i also consumed a lot of chocolate bars and trail mix when i was went tramping.
i came back to the civilized world and nothing tastes good anymore. i can't bear diet coca cola or my low fat soy patties - they have horrible chemical taste. i used to enjoy chocolate. now i can go through half a tub of nutella before getting to the point of "yummy, i've had enough". i don't even like cornflakes,baked goods, even sugar cereal anymore - everything tastes bland. most ice cream just tastes sweet. the beef noddles and the grilled chicken in my favorite restaurants do not taste the same anymore. i cannot taste the finer flavors.
i do seem to enjoy avocados and eggs, fruit, and while other breads are not hot - white bread is delicious. oh, and for the first time in my life i actually enjoyed a protein shake.
i'm trying to get back to eating clean, but all the bland food is making my life very tough. instead of avoiding it because it does not taste good, i eat too much to compensate.
why does everything taste weird?
what can i do to stop overeating and craving crap that does not even taste good? it's very hard to stop "cheating" if your cheats aren't pleasing your cravings.
