Has anyone experienced the phenomena of no longer liking the foods you used to love the most? I used to be raving chocoholic, but now, as time goes on, I like it less and less. I have successfully converted favorite recipes to gluten free, but for some reason, I don't like chocolate much anymore (is that the sound of the world ending, lol?). I still like other sweets, like apple crisp, muffins, pies, etc. But all I really want to eat is the good hearty food....meat, chicken, homemade soups, veggies.....that's good.....it's what my body needs apparently. But it's still weird that chocolate no longer appeals to me. That's my strange story.....what's yours? B)

Odd, but yes and chocolate would be one thing that really does not appeal anymore. Leaves a kind of nasty aftertaste. Is way too sweet and just doesn't do it for me anymore. Now give me a big plate of gluten-free spaghetti and meatballs and a tasty salad with some Chebe bread and I'm there!

Dark chocolate with almonds is something I still can't resist. Or just dark or bittersweet chocolate.

I don't crave chocolate, but I enjoy a dark chocolate after a meal. It substitutes for desert.

My cravings usually involve root vegetables or something in the cabbage family. If it's just sheer hunger, I crave protein.

Oh good.....I don't feel so crazy now. :) And yes, it seems just too sweet. My husband made gluten-free biscotti yesterday and I don't want them at all. But he totally understands all the odd tings that go along with the gluten thing.

Pizza was a weekend treat on Saturdays & usually all Saturdays.. Went gluten-free & craved it but ten years ago I couldn't find a pizza that actually tasted like a regular pizza.. So I ate the cardboard gluten-free one at times... Now I don't or rarely eat any pizza!!!!!Plus I was a cookie, pie cake eater now I don't do that often either....clean eatiing has become a way of life...

I found that I was pickier about the chocolate. Hershey's tastes like it has a lot of cheap wax in it. I switched to dark chocolate, milk chocolate is too sweet.

Mine sort of totally changed. I used to love to bake, but haven't been able to recreate a chocolate chip cookie that tastes good to me and many other baked things ... so I don't bake much anymore. If I'm looking for a snack/treat, I'm usually looking for salty and crispy rather than sweet and chewy.

I make hundreds of "buckeyes"... peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate... at this time of year and if I eat 2... that's a lot. I give 'em all away.

When I was a little kid, I loved chocolate. When puberty hit, I HATED chocolate. Yes, too sweet and a nasty aftertaste. When menopause hit, I started craving chocolate, and I ate WAY too much. Now I'm back to not liking it. I can still enjoy chocolate ice cream, but candy bars just don't appeal at all.

What is happenning now is a bit strange. I am hungry ALL the time, and nothing satisfies me. I can eat my meat/rice/cauliflower mixture until my stomach is so full it hurts. Yet my mind is telling me I'm still hungry. I know it's because I'm not getting the nutrients I need with this very limited diet. I'm going to have to get some gluten free/ corn free/ salicylate free supplements made. <_<

Most definitely! For me, I now eat a lot more protein. I also eat meats I never liked before like ham and bacon. I don't have the crazy cravings like I used to have. I still want pizza from time to time, but not nearly as often. I have never been much of a dessert fan, but I probably have had a lot more deserts lately just from trying things out so that I have know what is good when I want it.

My opinion: If you are listening to your body and giving it what it wants/needs, then your tastes will change over time (and from season to season) because your body's needs change over time (and season to season).

I can't remember the last time I used a salt shaker... I cut back on sugar and many of my foods that I usually ate are now very sweet without sugar..

Yes, let me count the ways.... The list is too long and depressing.

I have found a love of tamales and corn chips. Apparently insatiable.

Can I get an 'Amen'? Totally agree. The darker, the better, but only occasionally and only in very small doses.

It's interesting because my tastes go in cycles too. One week I could eat tuna with celery, carrots and vinegar for breakfast lunch and dinner, and the next week it will be something totally different and I don't even want to look at the tuna. Right now, I'm just getting over a stomach bug (not gluten) and nothing sounds good. That's a problem when you are a type one diabetic and have to keep your blood sugar stable.

    • Better to catch a celiac disease diagnosis early.  Experts do recommend the testing of all first-degree relatives even if asymptomatic and while on a full gluten-containing diet.   I had my kid screened and requested a full panel since I test oddly.  She was also screened for anemia.  That was about three years ago.  We are considering running the panel again, but Not until she is back at school and on a daily diet of gluten (our home is gluten free and she is gluten light in the summer).   Celiac disease can cause long term issues.  You have osteoporosis besides anemia, right?  I bet you might have some other issues that can resolve on a gluten free diet that you just chocked up to getting old.  Wouldn't be nice to prevent such damage in your kids?  Wish I had known about celiac disease a long time ago!  
    • Non alcoholic liver disease is associated with celiac disease. My liver numbers were elevated in the year or two before diagnosis and I was dx'd with fatty liver (non alcoholic). After I went gluten free, my numbers came right back down to normal. I also had microscopic blood in my urine & had all kinds of tests & scans run for that until the docs just threw up their hands & said, "That's just the way you are". Guess what happened when I went gluten-free? Yep. All clear. I will caution you that you will need to eat gluten every day for at least 2 weeks for an endoscopic biopsy and for 12 weeks for any further celiac serum testing. Otherwise, you'll get false negatives. It's MUCH easier to just stay on gluten until all testing is done because after going gluten-free, we tend to have much more severe reactions to gluten. I am in agreement with everyone else. You need a celiac savvy GI. One positive on the celiac blood is enough to move forward with an endoscopic biopsy.  Celiacs can be fat, medium or skinny. We come in all shapes & sizes. These darn docs that think you have to be wasting away don't know what they're talking about. I can't tell you how many overweight people we've had on here who the docs were just plain nasty too telling them to stop eating twinkies & such as that. Inexcusable!!!!
    • All first degree relatives should be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms or immediately if symptoms present. It is hereditary and can present at any age. Make sure they are eating gluten daily for at least 3 months before testing if they have been gluten free.    Welcome to the club you never wanted to be a part of. Check out our Newbie 101 pinned to the top of the Coping section.
    • jenna3, you are going to feel human again!!! Do not stop eating gluten until all testing is done & over with. Have a gluten glutton fest.  As soon as all testing is finished, then go strict gluten free. Read our newbie 101 in the link below. It will tell you how to keep yourself safe. You'll need to get some new kitchen items and do a lot of cleaning out of drawers etc...  
    • I was recently and surprisingly diagnosed June 1.  I am in my late 50s and have two children ages 21 and 19.  I understand Celiac is heredity.  I have no physical symptoms which is why I was surprised at the diagnosis.  My kids don't exhibit symptoms either.  I have always been anemic and my kids hemoglobin always was within range.  Do I have my kids get a blood test or not?
