Taste Changes With Dieting
Saturday, June 11, 2011
Some of you may better know me as Mr. Principal, but Mrs. Principal is REALLY Mrs. Dividaddy. :)
I have been Sparking for about two months and I've lost at least 11 pounds. I want to lose 14 more and it will happen. I don't care if it goes slow or not because I want all the changes to be permanent and sustainable. I refuse to gain back any weight.
There's something I'm noticing as I've radically changed my diet for the better over the past two months and I want to know if you have experienced anything similar. Please share the details as I am sincerely interested.
1) I feel slightly ill after eating fast food. Mrs. Principal and I used to eat fast food 2 times a week or so. No excuses, we did it. Now its a Saturday thing for me and hardly ever at all for her.
2) Soda pop doesn't taste as good as it used to. I only drink diet soda because I refuse to drink calories. I only drink diet soda, green tea, or water.
3) Sometimes I get roaring sugar cravings. I have eliminated 90% of my snacking which used to include sweet snacks like cookies and salty ones like chips. Those are gone now. When I snack I have spinach, an apple or peanut butter on bread.
Have you guys had any of those similar situations mentioned in #1/2/3? I'd appreciate your feedback on how you handled it.
