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.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
