I used to think that it was my lack of skill in the kitchen, my impatience at “stir until thickened” type directions or even some inborn laziness that made the above statement all too true.
There may be another reason.
Watermellen’s blog on Friday (3-22-13) “Not a whole lotta taste” describes research that found that people fall into 3 categories – Super-tasters, regular tasters or non tasters.
I know that I have an enormous capacity to eat food – any kind of food. This goes beyond binge eating which happens occasionally in response to some life event. I can eat huge amounts of healthy food too at just about anytime.
Perhaps I don’t have the taste buds that cause some people to be “picky” or discriminating eaters as described in the research.
That’s where my food scale, nutrition tracker and yes, even my daily weigh-in are needed for me to face reality. I’m so happy to have these resources. I do not want to go back to the “old me.”
