When I lost 75 pounds a few years ago, that happened to me too. It was like "ok I'm hungry but my body needs nutrients so I dont want to fill it with junk" And then after I'd eat healthy foods, it was like "ok I'm not hungry anymore so why would i eat that junk" And i just stopped eating junk alltogether. Then one day,my bf who is now my husband said "why dont u ever eat pizza or snacks, look at you, you lost all this weight, and your metabolism has sky rocketed, you dont need to lose more weight, Your body will burn it right up so why dont u just have some?" That was the day it all went down hill. I started eating junk, just a little at first but i started to want it then I got cravings, and here I am today. The same weight I was the time he said that to me. I have stopped losing weight, and then I heard about SP a few weeks ago and I'm putting a lot more effort into getting back to the habbits I had in the past that allowed me to lose 75 pounds and keep it off. I would love to get to the point where I dont crave or enjoy junk. But for me it took a long time to get to that stage, and if I ever get there again, nobody in the world is going to talk me out of it.

I realize now that he just said that because he didnt want to eat pizza by himself. And I'm kinda resentful of him for saying that it to me several years ago. But anyway, I have already lost 5 pounds on SP and that will soon turn into 10 and he will still be unhappy and fat because he hasnt been trying as hard as I do. And then he will be jelous. and I will have the last laugh

I bought some 100 cal packs of craisons today. Threw one in my lunchbox for tomorrow. I make my own snack packs by buying bulk and breaking it down and into snack zip bags. I nibble while I do it so have one snack gone by times I'm done. I am too cheap to buy too many of them premeasured and packaged. But they are a good idea and help keep the portion control plan going.

I still love my pizza. But I have a whole box of Lorna Dunes cookies that have been sitting in my house for 2 weeks. They used to be my favorite I no longer have any taste for them. I wouldn't do that with oatmeal cookies, my weakness. I just have my husband bring me one every other week. I have noticed I can't have as much cream in my coffee it taste to sweet now.

I have to admit that I love those 100 cal hostess cakes! Most of the time I even do really well with them. I still love my junk food, but it does really nasty things to me if I eat too much fat in one meal now. So not worth it! The main thing is that the sugar cravings are less intense and more time passes in between them. And I have finally given up regular soda. In the past, this was a major struggle. now there is no way I am wasting my calories on soda.

MONSPABEN,
It does take a while to lose the craving/taste for those things that are so bad for us that we really like! Like cake or donuts or candy or whatever it is. It has taken me about 3 months to reach this point. Be persistent in eating fresh fruit and veggies every day. Before you know it, you will have lost that desire for bad food and really crave the sweet deliciousness of fruit.

Blessings,

Popcorn used to be my go-to food. With lots of butter. These days it isn't the same. I no longer feel the same cravings. Yay for us.

But the taste of those 100 cal. items are not all the same. Some of them taste the same so be careful.

Hi all,

Just started here and how long did it take for you to get to that stage where the bad food no longer tastes good - because I am having a hard time here! Today I was craving the donuts they serve here every day at work and thought ok, I'll just have one - next thing I knew, stress is at its high and I've eaten three of them! And they were good!!! LOL... so how oh how do I get to the point that pizza doesn't sound good or any of that bad food for that matter?

Hi Kit,

Yes, I would say your body starts to want to eat the healthy foods. Good for you! I have tried those 100 calorie Hostess cupcakes too and their ok. I try not to eat too much of that kind of stuff, but every now and then you need a little treat. emoticon

Oh yes...I had that happen to me not too long ago. I had a piece of cake...and I didn't even like it. It was easy to throw it away. Afterwards...I said to myself...what the heck is happening to me? I never met a cake I didn't like....but you are right. Our tastes are changing. And now...I can tell by looking at something...I just don't think the taste is worth it......and I am usually right. So glad you see the progress...it is such a healthy thing.

I am so done bein the fat girl...how bout you?

It's no longer a diet. I am calling it my live-it.

When I went grocery shopping last week, I bought a box of the Hostess 100 calorie snacks...the chocolate cupcakes. I thought I'd see how I dealt with having something like that in the house. In the past, I've been known to eat an entire box of the full size cupcakes in a day...oh who am I kidding? A day? Try in an hour. So last night I decided I'd have one after dinner. Well, I was a little disappointed. They didn't taste anywhere near as good as I remembered. So I'm thinking maybe they altered the recipe to make it only 100 calories. Then I realized that's not it at all (have you seen how tiny those things are? Of course they're only 100 calories...they're tiny, almost bite size). The reason they don't taste as good is because my tastes have changed. I'm feeding my body healthy foods with fewer chemicals, eating less salt, eating more fruit...I think my tastes are adjusting to this healthier lifestyle!! How cool is that?! Anybody else notice anything similar?
