    If anything, primal has made be LESS sensitive to sugars, grains, etc. I assume it has to do with my gut improving.

      I've only been primal for a year and half, but I still think most conventional foods and restaurants smell good. For me it's a conscious choice to not eat that shit. When I smell fresh popcorn or soft pretzels, or walk past a fast food joint in the mall, I like the smell, but I make the choice to keep walking because my health is more important to me than satisfying a craving. I know I can cook something better when I get home, but the temptation is still there.

        I think most of it is just mental association, like you describe.

        Reading plenty of articles about over-consumption of sugars, grains, and the like... It just eventually becomes second-nature to be disgusted by some foods.

          The other day at work I was felt a little sick at the smell in the office. I walked over to the kitchen and it was the microwave popcorn. Funny, it didn't smell as bad close to the microwave because it smelled more like popcorn. But whatever small traveled the distance to my cubicle was a lot worse. Maybe burned fake butter?

            I'm not so sure about that.

            While my husband has changed his diet very gradually to mostly 'Primal', following me as he has seen the positive changes in my health, he has not read the book and does not read any other articles or information... nor do I tend to discuss details of the plan, or much reasoning. I keep things simple. He asks a few questions and I tell him short answers such as "the natural fats such as humans could have accessed throughout our history are better than refined", and he needs no further explanation.

            He has also mentioned that fry smells are now offensive to him.
            Just a couple of days ago he had a fit over a product that I accidentily purchased that tasted "weird" and "not right". They were frozen ripe plantains. Usually the package I get contains only "plantains" and no other ingredients at all. But at the store I was at the same brand but a slightly different box contained "plantains, vegetable oil".
            He was very clear that he did NOT like the plantains with the vegetable oil on them even though I did't even realize it until he brought it to my attention because the boxes looked so similar. ( I had to pull the box out of the trash to see the ingredient list to appease him because he was so insistent that there was a difference.

            Once I tasted them I could feel the vegetable oil coating as well, and indeed the taste way was off from the plain plantains I usually get.

            It was not just the coating of oil throwing him off because though sometimes I cook the plain plantains without oil I just as often cook them with a light coating of coconut oil... refined CO oil on his which has no coconut taste as he does not like the coconut flavor.

            I use virgin on mine as I do like the slight coconut taste with the plantain... it's heavenly IMO.
            A great treat for me.

                while i've not yet reached level 10 primal and hate the smell of pizza () if you have a box fan, find a window that's not in your room, open it and face the fan outwards. it'll blow the scent out by pulling air in from outside the domicile
                beautiful
                yeah you are

                Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
                lol

                  I find that I can smell the rancid oils in a lot of cooking....very nasty.
                  Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                    I don't think the fact that it was pizza is what made me dislike the smell. If it was a really high quality pizza with olive oil as a primary ingredient (instead of soybean oil), it might have smelled quite a bit, well... Nicer.

                      Cori, I too find that I can taste vegetable oils in the food I eat. It doesn't register as "bad" necessarily, but as rather, a little... "Off" is the word to use I guess.

                        The only food I really hate the smell of is seafood. Makes me sick, especially tuna.

                          Poorly cooked seafood or improperly prepared seafood has an awful odor. It smells great if it's done up right though.

                            I even hate the smell of it raw. lol. Especially prawns. I've never been able to eat seafood because of it. I don't mind overcooked calamari rings because they're rather tasteless.

                              Cori this is such an encouraging statement. My dh certainly does not read any books or articles or even discuss our way of eating (other than to say something was good). But he does at least eat what I feed him and I do believe I can already see some health improvements and even think he looks better. Perhaps he is also very very gradually making a few changes for himself. I hope so, and only wish it weren't quite so gradual.
