    Red face 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!

    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 ?

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

    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.

    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
