Tired Of Eating
0

29 posts in this topic

I can taste, but I don't taste like normal people. I can eat strange combinations of food and I taste each food separately rather than a medley. so for example I can eat guacamole on ginger snaps, or cherries dipped in hot sauce, or mackerel and avocado mashed into a paste with rice, and not think any of it is gross. My taste is also extremely insensitive it seems, while my smell is pretty decent i think. I wonder if I burnt my tongue too many times on super hot liquids. anyway my sense of smell is fine and far surpasses my sense of taste. this is pre-celiac.

It is possible that your taste will recover as you heal on the diet. Are there any particular types of tastes that you can taste strongly and still enjoy? Sweet, salty, savory?

I can taste everything, I just don't enjoy the eating part. I enjoy sweet too much as in I eat too much sugar, but the enjoyment only lasts for the first few bites and then I just feel gross again.

I do like eating well-flavoured red meat though. And bacon fat. And bone marrow. But I still malabsorb fat if I eat too much at once :(

and @ lindamb296 -- of course you can call me Jam. That's actually my name IRL :lol:

Well, maybe a good solution would be to just go with what makes you happy. If well-flavored red meat is appealing, a steak, burger patty, or pot roast, with a small amount of potatos or bland greens would be good. Stick a burger patty on top of a salad, help get the greens in. That's actually one of my favorite meals. Fry potatos in bacon fat so they taste good, and you get some calories and resistant starch.

It sounds like your body really wants fat, probably because you're having trouble absorbing it. A number of vitamins are fat-soluble, so your body will crave fat so that it can get those vitamins. A certain amount of dietary fat is also necessary for proper brain and bowel function. Bone broths are a good way to get the fats and nutrients you need in their most digestible form. I can give you some links to recipes for making the most nutritious broths.

When you say you feel gross after the first few bites, do you mean nausea? Trouble swallowing? Or something else?

naw it's just a mental thing.

too much fat does make me feel nauseated. I made a bone broth without draining the fat and I almost got sick off it. now I drain the fat but keep the marrow.

my eating is really disordered. half the time I'm hungry but even a nice fatty bacon slice doesn't sound good. nothing sounds good. it's a mental block I guess.

also I have reflux on and off. right now it's really bad so I hate everything. it will come and go even when my diet is constant, so I wonder if it isn't triggered by microscopic effing CC.
