    Taste palate has changed -- bad food tastes too sweet

    Anyone else notice this? For instance, I had a teaspoon of (lite!) Ragu pasta sauce and it tasted way too sweet. Like disgustingly sweet... I immediately knew it was not food. I can taste the sugar in everything now and it's not delicious.

    The upside is that the taste of fruit has intensified. I could eat grape tomatoes all day.

    I'm having a similar problem only with everything tasting super salty.

    This is pretty well documented. Less taste for salt and sugar once you adjust. I was at a work function and to be polite I ate a milk chocolate truffle - it was very unpleasant, actually grossed me out.

    I had a couple of sips of DH's coke zero yesterday. Tasted like full-sugar coke!

    I still have a little sugar in my coffee, and a little honey on my greek yogurt, but I'm down to under a tablespoon a day total (part of my 20%), so I'm really noticing the natural sweetness in fruits, etc. too.

    Although I'll probably never dislike sweet things, I have noticed my taste for salt is changing. It seems like everything prepared in restaurants is face-puckering salty. Ick.

    Absolutely. Almost nothing I used to love tastes good anymore. I'm pretty much down to real cheesecake and real ice cream (no fake ingredients) as things I actually like. I can't even do ketchup anymore.

    As for salt, I can't stand any amount of processed salt, but die for unrefined sea salt.

    Try slicing Granny Smith's and topping with 1/4 - 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon.

    I find nearly all veggies sweet now - I haven't cheated on anything since I started 3 weeks ago, but carrots and peas seem exceptionally sweet to me now.
