It's kind of funny how the taste buds bounce back. Have been cutting down on processed stuff for a while then decided to have a lean cuisine (pizza)--wow, it was *really* sweet and kind of metallic tasting. Not sure if it was just a *bad* pizza or if my buds have gotten used to the non-processed stuff already. Clean eating is the way to go!

Depends on what the food is, but I can taste the rancid fat in the food and I tend to get a little indigestion or what I call "bad oil burps" for me. Its not on all processed food, but some foods now just make me get a sick feeling just thinking of that bad oil food. Boxed, add water only, pancake mix gives me serious "I am in so much pain that I can't move" indigestion!

Yes. Growing up Mom always grew her own veggies. We did grow some for the past 4-5 years. This year's was not as good. But yes it tastes so fresh and natural. You wonder what have you been eating all along.

Changing my life one day at a time from the inside out. Remembering the basics, to set goals, plan,implement, then revise. The journey will be hard and easy but remember to HAVE FUN!!!

Pam - your comment about the grocery store cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce was so spot on for me. Yesterday I brought home all three from my CSA (Consumer Supported Agriculture). The family - that is usually not big on veggies - all went back for seconds on their salad saying that the salad tasted great! It really did taste so much better than the grocery store produce!

Some things such as soda is an occasional allowance. Salty snacks are also a temptation, but for the most part I no longer eat or enjoy 'most' processed food.

Even foods like grocery store cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce do not have the same taste as home grown. Amazing the difference!

Update! NO MORE Wiggle room on my weight! Still figuring out how to keep balance and stay in charge. Staying active but could step it up again.

I have also given up most processed foods. My husband and I gave up soft drinks about 15 years ago, I have maybe had one or two since then. I do not miss all the chemicals and do not crave them either. emoticon

I eat very few processed foods, but every now and then I may have a treat. I usually enjoy dark chocolate covered graham crackers from Whole Foods, but they have not been selling them for some time now (or I can not find them in the store any longer). Well, I was shopping at Giant and I saw that Keebler had an individual container of mini chocolate covered graham crackers, I thought - "what the heck - these would be fine". Well.....I got home a tried one and I swear I could taste the chemicals in the cookie. I have no desire to finish the little package. Has this happened to any of you?? It is a good thing, yes, I really have no taste/desire for processed foods any longer.
