I can't imagine trying to eat chicken, steak, and onions without seasoning

Most herbs and spices have negligible calories. You're fine with seasoning as long as you keep the salt to reasonable level.

Seriously what are you eating? Most healthy food does taste good or have you never been to a vegan store?
The only probably I ever find is that it's very expensive to eat healthy.


Don't have vegan stores where i live but i could never eat it i'm real fussy with plants for the most part i cant eat alot of grown produce except for a select few (listed above)

So besides meat and dairy and those few things my selection of foods is dull and tastes awful to say the least.
It's kind of depressing and makes you want to just give up and go well ill live till 20 and die obese with how bad it is.


Taste buds can be retrained. It just takes time and effort.

Also: you don't have to eat vegan to eat healthy. Chicken, for example, is very low-fat once you remove the skin. Just don't fry it. You do still need to eat your veggies and at least some fruit and dairy.



My tastebuds have been like this since i was a child.

and i do eat chicken honestly without chicken being made into a kebab i would not have survived the whole month of eating healthy i have so far without going insane.

Its just very hard to find good tasting food that makes you feel full and honestly it surprises me people haven't looked into trying to make tasty foods that are healthy also.

Kebabs are good: try mixing zucchini, green peppers and onion wedges in with the chicken. Use a nice lemon-herb seasoning or marinade the kebabs with a fat-free dressing.

Definitely try to use new seasonings if you can; hopefully the situation at your home won't get you into too much trouble if you try

Buy very small amounts of different sauces (worcestershire, soy, etc.), different oils (olive, sesame, etc.), and salts/peppers (sea salt, peppercorn, etc.)

It's all going to be a huge experiment for your taste buds and to see what your stomach can or cannot handle

If you're trying to be active in the gym to lose weight but have some good muscle recovery

This is some solid advice; especially chicken breast which is pretty cheap to buy and easy to season/cook (try pouring italian dressing on the cut chicken and leave it in the fridge for a while)

I've been there, the whole Ben & Jerry's and Dominoes Pizza addiction; I couldn't eat normal/healthy food well

Just keep at it - once you lose more weight/get more active, you'll feel better and your body/brain may change how it reacts to unhealthy food

You're not buying the right food. Also this meat you eat is as bland as anything.
Seasoning is what gives food flavor or helps what's the word "highight" the food.

If you bite into a raw onion it's not gonna be good. if you cook a sweet onion with low no fat butter with a bit of seasoning it's will taste good.
You may want too buy healthier foods and learn some basic cooking.

So i'm someone who is overweight .soon not to be due to dieting but right of now i have to say my life is a living hell.

I eat tastless horrible food (fruit and veggies with nothing to mask there putrid taste) and basically super unfilling meals and i noticed i don't get satisfaction from eating healthy food.

I actually took up the gym to work of 400 calories just so i could eat a 300 calorie icecream bar because eating healthy food was driving me nuts since it was bland and tasted natural.

As someone who can't eat anything remotely / slightly bitter i have like very little to eat since sweet and healthy things are rare i have to eat bland shit.


Anyhow that aside my friend is overweight he eats a pizza every week (like i used to) and his food choices are basically for the same reasons i have noticed.

As it stands unhealthy food is more convenient, cheaper and filling and produces the most enjoyment where as bland meals like steak and potato and corn is bland and disgusting.

Does anyone think we will ever make healthy food that tastes remotely enjoyable?


Honestly, you just need to get good food out of your system like I did. It's like drugs I think. Whenever you're sad or want to celebrate, your body immediately makes u crave for takeout or something good to eat. You have to break from that cycle.

I was able to do it this month by going on 6-hour meditation sessions. After the "cold turkey" you stop deriving your pleasure from food, and start mellowing out. Now I don't even care about what I eat -- I just know I need to eat something, but then I go straight back to what I have to do.

So don't think that you need to eat good food to be happy or feel relieved. That's just what your body is used to.

You gotta snap out of it, and even when you're sad or happy, your body won't look for junk food, believe me.

True i always held it up to the fact i only really get pleasure out of life from food but you might be right i have noticed a tiny bit i have been going less for chocolate bars etc in the last few weeks.

Yeah, I eat a lot of horrible fruit too , but I've found that getting a crockpot and making homemade soup two or three nights a week masks the taste of putrid vegetables.

A nice vegetable soup with tomatoes, beans, garlic, vegetable broth, a few chilies and a splash of balsamic vinegar will cover up the horrible, horrible taste of all those carrots, onions, cabbage, celery and corn.
