  • Foods begin to have different flavors?

    I've noticed as I've been eating on primal for the last few weeks and have noticed that vegetables taste sweeter. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yes yes yes, this is because of your leptin receptors which inturn change your tastebuds - simple foods become so flavoursome

      Good, isn't it. Only problem is that now sweetened foods taste like crap
      Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

      Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

        My husband and I laugh about how you know you're Primal when healthy foods taste like junk foods you used to love, but the junk foods now taste terrible. Yesterday, he was commenting on how his grass-fed cheese tasted like cheese-puffs, and the day before he was saying our wild blackberries tasted like Kool-aid. The same day, I was eating fried & dehydrated green beans and thought they tasted like donuts. I can't stand the taste of donuts now, but those green beans tasted delicious! Taste bud changing is totally normal!

          If I eat an ice cream cone will that make it go back to the way it was where veggies taste bad again??

            to clarify , I'm going out to eat tomorrow night and I've been pretty darn good about keeping the sugar at bay... and at the place I'm going I only get to go once every couple of months, and they have sweets/pasta I'm going to want to eat.. but I don't want to ruin all this taste change for one meal. Will one meal undo all this ?

              Depends on how long your leptin receptors have been switched back on so to speak. Perhaps be on the safe side and only have a little

                Or do an experiment and enjoy the whole meal >: ) I'd like know your results!

                You've switched over once already afterall, if worst comes to worst you can again. My experience is that it will take more than one meal, and in fact you probably won't enjoy it like you thought you would.

                  Definitely. Once I cut out the added sugar and processed carbs, fruits and vegetables actually have a taste and you start to develop enhanced tastes for the nuances of flavors. It's awesome.

                    Don't know.
                    But if that's all they had there then I wouldn't eat it.

                      I used to hate sweet veg like parsnips and hate fruit in savoury dishes (e.g. apricots in lamb stew), now I love both.

                        things I used to love, like Chinese food, I can no longer stand. just thinking about how Chinese restaurants smell (fried foods!) makes me lose my appetite. I so much prefer my own cooking, that eating out is no longer a treat, unless I get a simple steak and salad.

                          Well, I went out to eat Thursday night. I will advice against this. I ate my fill of sushi, a little pasta, wanton, and ice cream.. It was delicious.... My taste receptors still loved this bad food. Sigh. Now I am having some cravings come up again AND I feel super tired. Not sure if that is related or not. The veggies do NOT taste as good today, although I still like them. I'm not sure if this is psychological or not. Lol

                            Sorry to hear. But you got to where you did before, I think you can do it again.

                              when i cut out grains and sugars, i was doing low-carb, so it was 6 weeks before i even had a blackberry. it was the most luscious fruit i'd ever tasted!! once the garbage goes, real food is amazing.

                              i know if i have any wheat or sugar i get very tired afterwards. if i have "too much" i feel utterly sick. soooooooooooooooo... i. don't. eat. them. because of how crappy i feel after eating this stuff, i don't WANT it anymore.

                              ymmv.
                              As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
