It's crazy how tastes change. I had a craving this morning for something sweet, so I got 2 things I haven't had in a really long time - a chai latte, and a 7 layer magic bar (which were my FAVORITE).
Neither of them tasted all that great, and certainly didn't taste "worth" the calories. I poured half of my latte down the drain, and left half of my magic bar in the break room. I'm glad I got the craving out of my system, and I don't foresee buying either again anytime soon.
Now, that tilapia sandwich I had at lunch? THAT was good food!
Isn't it great when you notice this happening?! I used to love chips from the chip shop, but now they just seem to be far too greasy. That said, I still LOVE home made potato wedges but they probably have under half the calories! And yes, I too have developed a love for huge platefulls of leafy green salad.

So true!!! The thought of eating a basket of chicken tenders and fries is just NOT appealing anymore. Although on Memorial Day, I had the BIGGEST craving for said chicken, sans fries. I do pretty well with following the 80/20 with my nutrition, so that was definitely my 20 lol
Yep, and it feels so awesome! I remember being able to eat a box of Entemann's donuts in a day. A BOX OF FREAKING DONUTS! I'm even disgusted with myself for typing it!!!! And I don't really feel like that, and I WANT fruits and veggies!
I'm with you. A majority of the time I have no desire for fatty foods and even sugar falls in there. However at random times I experience an overwhelming craving for one or the other. At this point in the game I have to believe my body must be needing it for one reason or another.

This has totally happened to me as well. In college (when I was exercising a lot but not eating well), I'd love greasy subs and fries from the local shop. Fast forward to my reunion on campus last weekend, it was a struggle to finish just half of what I had eaten before. It was still good, but I realized that I wanted it more for the nostalgia than for the actual taste.

I've found, for myself, when I treat my body well, it craves what I need. There are times I crave olive oil, spinach, steak, and even lettuce. Maybe your body just doesn't need more fats at this time.

Ive been working at losing weight for awhile now and ive come to a realization that things i once craved (like creamy chicken hotdish with extra melted cheese) no longer appeal to me, in fact they make me queasy to take a few bites. I use to be able to eat pounds of the stuff but no longer. Anyone else have this? Can people lose their appitite for fatty foods?
