I've noticed that some foods I have a strong reaction to get more mellow with exposure. I've also noticed that foods I've given up, when reintroduced, are extremely potent.

Just having a soy beverage (2 tablespoons) and licking out the spoon , where before I had to hold my nose even when opening the bottle, chug water and brush my teeth immediately.

I've also noticed that some foods go back and forth on flavor. One time I had a grapefruit/cranberry combo that tasted so delicious I could have drunk a gallon. The next time, "ehhh"---

just wondering what other supertasters experience.

I suppose some tastes are acquired.  I hated cilantro at first, but I enjoy it now.  Not on its own, or over added to a dish, but a little is nice.  Some taste aversions have never changed for me.  They were there all along and still are.  So, I'm not sure how to answer your poll.  I've experience with grapefruit juice what you have with grapefruit/cranberry.  There are times I love it, and others I can't take it.  When I was sick once the only thing I could keep down was grapefruit juice, which was weird.  I couldn't get enough of it.  I suppose the body has its way of letting you know what it needs/wants and I would think taste is involved in that process.

Neat. Unscientific poll you know and not multiple choice.

Can't really tell, cause I never paid attention to it. I do notice that now I am eating less sugar and more natural foods, that everything tastes better. And things that I hated in the past are now my favorite (like coffee and broccoli).

Ya that happens a lot. I use to hate walnuts.. but the more I eat them the more I like them. Now I like them.
I just get use to the bitterness of the nut, and don't really mind it.
Grapefruits too.. I use to not like them, but I do now.
And other things I know it's happened with, but can't think of anymore right now.


What is a mind, if not something to be messed with?
What is consciousness, if not a state to be altered?
If it helps to substitute for the phrase "messed with" the word "clarified" or "purified" or "alchemised" or "beautified", then perhaps my meaning is taken. A mind is a terrible to waste.

I haven't noticed anything drastic.  Sweet stuff tastes much sweeter now than it did pre-BTD because I eat very little sugar now, and foods that I once would have called bland have a more interesting taste now.

... but, is it a super taster trend or a general trend? No matter what your level of tasting, as you heal and include bigger portion of the unadulterated, organic, right for your type food lists in our diets, our sensitive taste buds improve?

Lemon juice always tasted sour and now it tastes sweet since I am doing BTD. A lot of sours are now sweet to me.

I don't hate artichokes anymore. I actually enjoy them. I haven't had cilantro in quite awhile because the taste of it was so vile to me I didn't even want to smell it.

As an Explorer why were you even bothering to have any Soy beverage at all? Just curious.

I used to really hate walnuts too. Same as ecstasty.


O positive baby boy.

I have been coffee and coke free for over a month.  I tried a caffeine free coke last week, and it was almost unbearably sweet.

Coke is a product that is definitely on the avoid list whether it's no caffeinated or not. Pop is bad stuff. I quit drinking it over 7 years ago now. Hopefully you will be able to quit that at some point too.

At work the other day I was noticing a lot of people drinking pop. The stuff just freaks me out. It really clumps up the blood like crazy!

Fermented soy (miso is a superfood) and a few other soy on my SWAMI are superstars (only a few, more ended up in neutral). Feel better with the fermented stuff anyway. Who knows what, if any, of all that controversy is true. Mercola (not using him unquestionly, just think it was interesting) went back and changed his stance on fermented. Discussed with Dr. D at my last appointment and got the green light. Learning more about the benefits for type A. Mom's side has 2 out of 5 daughters having breast cancer, as did her mother. I was a little surprised that both aunts are O's. Grandma is an A.

Just thinking about it. That being said, my cancer concern is less genetic, but more clearing out toxins. I have had a slight mercury issue. The docs didn't state it, but I think my history and a DNA SNP concern is more cardiovascular and cell health. Just looking to optimize my health.

I agree that it's nasty stuff, but trying a taste to see that it tastes bad now might further cement in your head to give it up. That worked with me and sugar. Specifically Hershey's Kisses. Now, I get a nose curl reaction thinking about them. I used to eat them a couple handfuls at a time. Last one I ate didn't make it to the stomach-- spit it out. Desire done.

And congrats on going a month!

I get the impression (from where?, I don't know) that being a Prop non, taster, or supertaster is not entirely connected with our ability to taste or not taste certain foods.. I mean you get people who are very aware of odours and flavours but who turn out not to be supertasters by the chemical test.Maybe it is a totally different thing?

I doubt the PROP status has anything to do with it, but I taste foods completely differently than I did when I started this way of eating. Now I'm hyper-aware of artificial flavors, and absolutely cannot eat some things that I used to enjoy - certain dairy products for example. For me, it feels like my taste buds have been super cleansed.

Yeah, that'd be me... I commented in another thread recently, that there are days when I can sense more strongly the smell & taste of things?! Those days are ones where I am more sensitive/been over exposed to things already!!

On the subject of cilantro, seeing as it was mentioned twice above - there was a discussion a couple of years back re that - it is one thing which apparently tastes more strongly/offputting the more your body needs it for detoxing...

I find everything much sweeter since I have been off sugar.  And I find some of the foods that are avoids for me don't smell good when cooking for my husband, such as tomatoes.  Used to love tomatoes.    Perhaps we just get more sensitive.

It amazes me still that something the slightest bit sweet is enough for me. I used to hate dark chocolate, but even semi-sweet is very sweet to me now. I don't eat it!

This is clinically proved true of olfaction.
