If you can only eat Grapes , Strawberrys , potato , peas ,carrot , lettuce , onion, and meat and dairy, then how did you find UNHEALTHY food that tastes good? I seriously doubt that's all you can eat, but if that is the case, I can only tell you, learn to cook. You can make some good soups with just potatoes, peas, carrots, onion, and a little meat, and I'm sure there are other things to make as well.

Fruits, teas (green, oolong, ginseng, corn, etc), fish are all very tasty and super-healthy.
why make when the Nature already offers us for free? :p

It's more about making the time to cook. Fast food is convenient, but after not eating it for a long time...it gets me sick when I do eat it.

Healthy food is awesome. Grilled chicken is love. Steak is love. PEANUT BUTTER!
Lol it's mostly about moderation. And many small meals a day.

And lifting. Muscle burns more calories at rest.

Breh or madam. I could tell by the title of this discussion that you are overweight. I don't mean that as an insult. I used to struggle with my weight alot too. Lemme just tell you that as you get healthier, nutritious foods become more tasty. Keep at it and one day a lightly dressed salad will be fucking delicious. Im not telling you to go completely cold turkey but you should pretty much cut sugary foods out of your diet unless as a reward for your hard work. You say these so called healthy foods are bland...lol a good salad is all about the dressing you use for the salad. Personally i love salads...italian...thousand island...ranch...honey sesame...mmmmm fuck i love salads.. plus you can mix and match ingredients like raisins, nuts, olives all kinds of shit,..whatever you like, its amazing... now doesn't that sound good!? Just don't go overboard with the condiments...but ya don't underestimate the value of condiments.

I'm no paragon of healthy eating, but I do enjoy healthier foods than beer and pizza when I've got time.

With produce in general, try to find locally grown if you can. Products that were shipped like tomatoes are often tasteless and watery. Local ones will often be smaller or less impressive looking, but have far, far more flavor packed into them.

Sometimes you can find locally grown stuff at the grocer's, but finding a local farm stand is always best. Do a few taste comparisons between what you find there and what you typically get at the grocery store and see what you think.

Personally, I could eat local grape tomatoes like candy,

It does taste good.
It depends on how you cook it & the quality.

I love the taste of junk food a lot so I'm not gonna pretend I prefer healthy food over junk food.

It's not what you eat for the most part*, it's how much of it you eat. Find a height/weight calories at rest calculator to get a general ball park figure of your calories burned at rest. Reduce that figure by 10-20%. Count all your calories using serving sizes to match that number as much as possible.

Eat three meals every day, try not to snack at all. You'll need to exercise to maintain your metabolic rate, walk 1-3 miles a day, do some casual weight lifting. Try to get 8 hours of sleep every night.

If you think you won't fall off the boat, take a cheat day once a week where you are allowed to eat more, maybe an extra 500 calories or so. This keeps your metabolism from slowing down.

*The only thing that really goes against this is if you eat a large amount of refined and simple carbohydrates, cakes, white breads, etc. Stick with whole wheat.

If you want to train your tongue not to be weak against bitter flavors, drink 1 cup of coffee, black, no sugar, every day for a month. It will be pretty disgusting, it tastes similar to drinking charred wood in a cup to start, but if you can force yourself to do that than anything else will be sweet in comparison.

You cannot think of this as a diet, you have to do it as a sustainable life choice that will be with you always, the phrase "I'm going on a diet." implies there will be an end, there is no end, it is a life choice that you can never stop, basically learning healthy habits since what you've been doing 'off the diet' hasn't worked for you.

Eat what you want, in moderation, exercise 20-30 minutes a day, count calories, don't starve yourself, don't skip meals. I can pretty much guarantee that if someone can put the work in towards being very meticulous about counting calories and exercise, and sustain it over time, anyone will lose weight.

They do. You just need to learn how to cook, hun.

Those ice cream cakes and pizzas you like don't naturally taste good. Someone learned how to put those ingredients together to make them as appealing as possible.

There are near infinite amounts of recipes you can find through a Google search. You have to be willing to think outside the box and try new things. I found out just a few months ago that beets and kale are effing amazing.

If it's that bad, I'd suggest going on a type of cleanse (juice, soups, and smoothies are popular for this) to retrain your taste buds to crave fruits and veggies. Spinach blends very well with fruit.

Cook a little. Plain carrots: Generally crap. Stir-fried carrots with chili, a little sugar (maybe honey) and something like rosemary cooked as soft as you want it: Can be pretty good for a total of like 3.00.

Plus you burn a little calories doing the cooking, but you can buy peeled carrots and spice mixes to cut the time down to everything but cleanup. And if you have a nonstick pan or an already-seasoned pan, that's pretty much wiping it down with a paper towel.

On the subject of "training" your taste buds, I think it's more like you are craving the comfort foods offered by simple carbs and fat. It's an easy way to quickly raise blood sugar and trips pleasure senses off in your brain -- if you're a little depressed (for example, at your weight) your body does the opposite of being helpful and craves carbs.

Historically simple carbs weren't super common so we don't really have off switches.

But try to find the pleasure of experiencing new foods and flavors. If you pause to consider each thing you eat and really taste it, you'll come to find that in terms of flavor there's not much variety in ice cream or pizza, but there's lots of sugar and fat. I suspect you're not really eating for taste right now.

EDIT: You might find some impetus from the food animes like Shokugeki no Souma, Wakakozake, Gourmet Girl Graffiti, in terms of making non-sweets appealing. Though junk food does show up in there too, they talk a bit more about texture and flavor combinations.

Veggies are actually really good if you prepare them correctly!! Just steaming them results in some not so yummy results. There's a lot of good healthy snacks in the health isles of stores. Granola is the greatest, honestly. There's entire box subscriptions just for healthy snacks, and some for recipes + ingredients.
