My sweet tooth permanently went away after I did 34 days in a row on the Master Cleanse. Ever since I finished it, I don't want to eat or drink anything sweet. That was 5 months ago.

CURED!!  


Congrats. What cleanse did you do?

Mine has decreased since eliminating grains.  I'm actually loving parsnips and sweet potatoes.

I did the Master Cleanse and lasted 3 days. I hated it! It just made me want to chew food so I could "sweep" clean my digestive system. There is something inherently wrong with not cleaning the digestive system - it's just like cleaning the house - some friction is needed.

Since I eradicated candida 2.5 years ago, no more sweet tooth. I follow SWAMI and rarely eat the honey that is a diamond. Have it to soothe my throat if it's sore. I get stevia but don't want that either. Parsnips, sweet potatoes and carrots are plenty sweet for this tooth now!

Intermittent fasting has more or less "cured" my sweet tooth.

Desserts don't bother me too much EXCEPT my daughter-in-law's pineapple upside down mini-muffins, pecan pie and egg custard. I just don't need to be around those three very often! About twice a year! Of course, I am talking about these three in their traditional versions. SWAMI has thrown pecans back into a black dot for me along with some other items that has me gritting my teeth! Hey, over there, we can't keep throwing out food because of these changes! Most of this stuff is expensive! I spent hours shelling all those nice, fresh pecans, do you hear? I think I am going to stay away from re-running that thing for a while! I don't like the idea of it sticking its nose over my shoulder when I'm eating something that was just fine yesterday but isn't today! ----Just joking, of course!

Same here! I stopped eating sweets after I got braces in my 20s which probably helped keep the candida under control at the time. I would get sweet cravings ever so often but ever since the candida cleanse, I do not have any desire for sweets. I had 2-3 pieces of chocolate a day during Christmas season only because the candy box was in front of me but I do not get strong urges. I had 1-2 jelly beans (yes, a whole package of Jelly Belly would last me about a month or two) a day for about three days while watching t.v. My whole sweet splurge was more out of habit - family sitting around the t.v. with various snacks.

I crave salt more than anything else. I think this is because of my low blood pressure. I came in at 82/60 about a week and half ago.

I crave rice cakes or grain based snacks more than sugary stuff. My recent carb/starch craving was due to eating proteins and veggies without grains for almost a month. My body just wanted a more balanced diet, that is all.

The Doctor I go to, told me when we want something sweet after a meal it can be caused by not having enough digestive enzymes and the body is looking for an expansive food which sugar is.....   I also like something sweet.  Mostly I can satisfy with figs, dates, and peanut butter with jam.

I prefer real food to sweets, but they are addictive.
I rarely had sweets as a young child, so didn't develop the taste for them, but I suspect that if I were raised on them like most kids, I would have a sweet tooth.

If I do crave sweets, it usually is in the morning to eat fruit. I think it is a blood sugar thing as well as the fact that fruit is better on an empty stomach.

If you don't know what percent of the respondents are of each genotype (assuming no one's genotype is changing over time, too) what can this poll really tell you?

I like something sweet every now and again, I'd miss sweet things if I never had any - but I don't crave sweet things unless I start eating them a lot.  If I don't eat them much I don't miss them, I think it's a bit like salt, the more you eat the more you want.  I do love agave syrup though and since my SWAMI  I've switched from sugar, I don't have lots but prefer it now to sugar.

WOW - that is interesting.  My Swami puts me at 44% Explorer and pecans are a diamond for me!  But dates are now a black dot, so I can't make my "pecan pie snack bars" now without the dates.........boo hoo  

But I do know what you mean about having to get rid of things that were beneficial before:  I have a huge stock of soy milk and several pound packages of tofu and a few quarts of goat yogurt that were our breakfast staple foods until LAST WEEK when I ran the Swami!  Now those are all black dots or total avoids.  Guess that's what I get for stocking up on food

haaa I justamente finished.. with biiig troubles , yesterday this blo..ahem beautiful book written by Bouchard & Ordovas, all about  molec. biology & translational sience... even here a lot of *might be's* can be...etc is taken for guaranted... and sorry I can't agree when it's mentioned *recent advances in nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics* coz Dr. D' seems really to have knittet it well all together in establishing a true groupe of genotypes (btw..also mentioned in this book but descriptions aren't given nor fixed!) So far I was able also to honour the mentioned *thrifty genes* in our gatherer-warrior context ...and last but not least.. I observed that exactly those commit the biggest errors by comparing and establishing *insights* gotten during SNP's issues... and malheureusement those don't work cross border but stay in their own little castle... which prooves the correctness of the Enneagram....that almost those are or 1-5-or 7 and do show up with *self reported- established phrases...* that none of another relevant groupe was able to verify until now !!!
Next: It seems to be known and even agreed...accepted...that  genetic variability of taste perceptions and preferences are acknowledged and even that the Prop taster
and non-tasters are detected (so far... bravo Peter you've been first for another time ... )....and are almost fixed by so named TAS2R38 and PAV-TAS2R3

When I observed all those written words, I can only agree with an acient teacher of mine Prof. Dr. Bodo Köhler who simplifyed all this in his book: Grundlage des Lebens.....! And for another time, sorry we are on the wrong way... medicine is artwork and no science...why... coz even with comparable amounts of numbers of tests etc... we are all far away from true outcome and verité!!!I observed and think today... there are a lot of different new approaches for new medicine... but indedd and truth.... a lot is nothing but new packings of an old thema!!!

We spend billions of money, vaste time and money instead of the acceptance that even here natural healing occurs as one of the correcter ways for healing procedures...... and what else ! All those belief systems can't accept as usual that a lot is much simpler then thought...as Dr.D. always mentioned and pointed out in his teachings........

The problem here as usual are and is stil : interrests... nothing about this theme then money ...subventions and interrests... the outcome- and look of a money making mashine working by itself in reproducing even more money...as thought in our todays so called *school medicine* showed up as the super erroning way... coz they do produce even more worse pathways in creating *chronic sick people*....!

So far I observed and still think: we need to take us more serious and taking full power of attorney... instead of blaming all docs to act in case of sickness.... when having given away our potency of our own responsability, no wonder that those will profit and send you into *nowhere-s land*... in such a heavy detoured society!!!

Amen!  

Medicine is science until applied to humans... it then becomes art-- much of it illusion. So much so that distraction and diversion must be employed to gain our cooperation, as in correcting one ailment while oops!... creating three more. Greasy food giving you indigestion? Take this pill. Low testosterone? Take this one.

Side effects? Pish posh. There are more pills for those, too. Surgery, chemo, radiation... all quite regular!

The primary outcome is income, and there is no denying that this is Big Business. The wellness industry and the sickness industry really need to get more distance between them, and that is up to us.



Hmmmnnn... Just noticed, Amazone I, that these 2 posts don't really belong in this thread. What to do?

The hell with them. Toxins!

During the 22 and 9 months I didn't have meat & poultry I devoured tons of tofu, until I realized it was making me so weak that I discarded it from my menu. If I remember well, this was before I read ER4YT.

I like salty stuff!  I can devour some fresh hot French fries!  Occassional craving for sweet stuff, but less with no coffee consumption.

My wife is a gatherer, and craves sweets like ice cream and the like fairly often, more so than me.

Same here.

I find it much easier to limit sweets than to limit salt. Often chewing on coarse salt crystals while cooking.

I don't think this is as naughty as it sounds, either. The amount of salt incorporated into a recipe to make it palatable is far greater than when added at the table. Another reason processed foods are so dangerous. The manufacturer can't very well ask the consumer to "sprinkle on a little salt before eating", so they load it up on the front end.

Doctors had it upside-down when they first told us to "put down the saltshaker". Should have said "season lightly, at the table only."

In cookery, there is a vast difference between using salt correctly and overdoing it.
Considering all use of salt to be superimposed on a dish that is considered Finished (and no chef worth her salt (ha!) would agree) is anathema to correctly prepared food.

The solution to oversalted fast-food is to avoid it, not to stop using salt in one's own cooking.
IMO.
