Tired Of Eating

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.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
