forgetting what food tastes like



Recommended Posts

Do you think that some day you may forget what a certain food tastes like? lol. I am in a group on Facebook where everyone posts meals/foods and people roast them or say that it looks flavortown. Someone asked if Condiments on mac n cheese is good, and I obviously said no because NO. But will I someday forget the deliciousness of mac n cheese? Or the taste of a 7 layer burrito? Or a real fudgy brownie? lol. Will some day I not be able to participate in this group because I truly cannot recall what a piece of cake tastes like? lmao.

I'm a weirdo because I never really liked food to begin with. I got fat due to Cookies and sweets. If I never had pizza or mac and cheese or Pasta or any food ever again, I wouldn't miss it.

I think I will remember what food tastes like because it is already happening now that I am in the pureed phase. I thnk it's about healthier versions of certain food. Now, I know certain foods are just absolutely NOT good for you no matter how you make it. I wasn't a sweet eater, so I LOVED food, food!

food still tastes the same to me but only slightly too sweet or salty because it usually is (if i didnt make it myself). That's enough to make me not enjoy it.

The only Condiments i have used since surgery are maple Syrup, Tomato sauce, mayo, mustard and liquid aminos (almost always in recipes)

Well, I hope I don't forget what a food tastes like cuz:

1. I like food. It's more than just fuel to me, it is pleasure and part of life. I just want to put it in its proper place.

2. If I forget how great mac n' cheese feels/tastes on my tongue, I might be more tempted to try it again to see if it's better than I forgot it was. :)

****

But mostly, I like not thinking about food or dreaming up recipes/scenarios built around all-consuming eating. :) And I'm glad I'm disgusted by huge quantities of eating.

Whenever I go out to eat and see the "average" portions of meals offered or just watch people eat I am like ........................................... gross, man. LOL. But then remember I would eat like 3 times that somehow.

I kinda' do hope that in 5 or 10 years I forget what Taco Bell tastes like. Because that still haunts me sometimes. lmao. I asked my coworker who has been vegan for over 20 years if she remembers what meat tastes like and she says she does. Maybe it's not as vivid and pronounced.

I was the opposite. Never liked sweets too much (rare occasion), but Pasta, mashed potatoes, fast food... bring it on. I loved all food, basically. Even healthy foods - but I would just eat an extreme amount of it.

I went to Cracker Barrel this past weekend and they brought 7 biscuits out to the table and they have amazing biscuits. I watched the two other people I was with eat all 7 biscuits and I just stared at them. But I could totally imagine the flavor of them in my mouth and how good they taste... I kinda' wish I wouldn't remember those sorts of things.

I was fat due to sweets as well. I like gourmet type sweets and pastries. Today, I do not eat those things, but rarely. I decided to only eat them on special occasions. I decided only on my immediate families bd's.

I hosted a baby shower 2 weeks ago and didn't eat the cake I purchased.

If it becomes a problem again I may have to reevaluate eating it.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
