This link on today's front page reminded me of my mother-in-law's extreme aversion to cucumber and melons. I remember hearing or reading that this was an actual physiological condition and that people with this aversion actually taste these foods differently than the rest of us. Have you heard of this and, if so, could you point me to any studies on it?
I'm looking for suggestions on where and how to keep a food log. I have a number of criteria that, I think will help me keep it up. 1. I'd like it to be online. 2. I'd like it to have some database of foods. 3. I'd like to it show trends, at least a weekly goal thingy. 4. I'd like to it to offer easy ways to update the log. 5. I'd pay for it. Free would be great, but ... I have a diet that I am already using that contains goals -- calories, carbs, protein, etc., -- all based on BMI and activity levels. A bonus question would be stories about how you managed to keep it up for yourself. :-)
