I used to wonder how people could go without these things... now I eat lean, whole foods and boy, does it feel better!

Put on some upbeat music.
If you find yourself dancing in your seat, take it a step further. Get up and start dancing on your feet.
You'll burn more calories that way.

guess this one is a beverage - but I couldn't live without milk when I was a kid. My mom used to get mad when I would gulp it down when we would go to a restaurant and then ask for another glass!

Now, I rarely drink milk. I really don't like the taste of it. I use it for cooking and on cereal, but can't tell you the last time I had a glass of milk.

I was a big fan of black olives plainly eaten raw, but now I find I dislike that.
I also was a big fan of deviled-ham from the can. Now, I could force myself to eat it but why would I?

Those are two childhood foods I now dislike.

Wow, I guess most folks didn't read the Topic Heading. I am missing the justification for those "this is what I eat now", or "I am into ghotitarianism* now" in the title. Perhaps I don't understand some of the responses, but since I only graduated from High School and have a couple years of College it must be my fault. Or maybe folks just try to keep earning points by commenting without paying attention to whatever they are replying to?

Perhaps one of the reasons I am overweight is that I dislike very few foods. I can't think of anything that I liked as a child that I don't like now... but one of my very few dislikes is oatmeal, because I hate the way it feels in my mouth. I do use it uncooked sometimes mixed with Greek yogurt and fruit to add fibre.

Dislike? So I no longer find tasty.. not just dislike because I know what is in a hot dog. Yep, I still like hot dogs..lol

For me, I don't like cereal. They've changed, and so have I. I don't like milk, but I have issues with too much dairy. I can still eat a little cheese, which I like.

What is funny, is I don't like fast food, or any snacks, besides ice cream, mint or coconut things, like Mounds, or York Peppermint patties.. I no longer like other candy bars, caramel, nougat, cake of any kind/cupcakes, and fast food is something I find repulsive, even though if I cheat. I cheat with these foods, which I crave, if I eat them, but I don't even enjoy the cheats, I just can't stop myself.

I do like pasta and bread, which trigger carb binges, if I indulge, which is why I stay very low carb, but it is amazing how many foods, especially sweet things, I no longer find tasty. Maybe I ate too much of them, or maybe it is because when I do eat them, I eat until I physically hurt, but given a choice between sweets, and a steak, I will take the steak 99% of the time, because it sounds tastier, and regret the 1% of the time, I make a mistake.

Thee are other foods I dislike due to health issues, but they still sound incredibly tasty, and I would love to eat them..lol.. so I didn't include those.

I've learned to love "zoodles," spiralized zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, to be used instead of pasta. It tricks my brain into thinking I've got pasta in my meal. Mixed with other veggies, it's a win/win, too! The meat you see in this photo is ground turkey. SO, to answer the question of what childhood food I don't love anymore, I'd say pasta. I just don't desire it at all.

"Favorite Hotdish"

It was russet potatoes, diced and cooked skin-on, mixed with ground beef cooked with onions, a bunch of veggies (sometimes canned, usually frozen) like peas, carrots, etc., then the "sauce" was canned beef vegetable soup, undiluted.

It was called "favorite hotdish" because we all loved it as kids. My dad would just add more potatoes if we had people coming over.

He made it for my own kids a couple years ago.... and it did NOT taste really good like I remembered! I've become accustomed to fresh veggies, homemade sauces, etc., and the canned soup taste didn't go over very well!

Fish sticks & tuna, crab meat and artificial crab meat. Somewhere around age 14, I couldn't stomach anything seafood. Every once in a while I'll get a craving for fish sticks but I think it's more a craving for tartar sauce. LOL

Also, I don't care for white bread any longer. I would much rather have a whole grain or whole wheat anything over enriched white bread.

Jell-O. Fish sticks, tuna.
I rarely eat fish, and am going back to strict vegetarian, but I do like mackerel. I loved all fish, and disliked all other meats, as a kid, but fish sticks, and their mock counterparts are no bueno today.

cheese whiz - I used to love it on bread and in celery sticks - not any more

I use real cheese now

miracle whip - I prefer mayonnaise now

dream whip - whipped cream is much better although very high in calories, I try to be careful about the portion, but whipped cream is my kryptonite

jello - I prefer fruit now for dessert

healthy choices have become more tasty to me than the old processed foods

Big Mac. Now it literally tastes so terrible it makes me gag, especially the special sauce which I used to think was so fantastic.

Fountain sodas. Now they all smell like really strong cleaning solution. Bleh.

Maybe that's a good thing...
And ditto on most sugary things. Like S'mores. Fun to make, but way too sweet to eat.

I would say, most processed boxed meals. My mom and dad both worked full time. My poor mom was exhausted all the time and food/nutrition was not the top of her concerns when she got home. So...we lived off of a lot of Hamburger/Tuna Helper, Mrs. Grass' Soup, Tuna Casserole, and those types of meals. I cannot honestly remember the last time I tasted Hamburger/Tuna Helper - maybe in high school and that was RARE by then as my parents had divorced and I was on my own for finding meals. I have had Tuna Casserole since, but I only like it when my mom makes it and I have it MAYBE once every 3-4 years. I can't say for sure, but I assume that I would hate the boxed meals now. I don't have a taste for much processed meals like that. I cannot stand frozen entrees and we used to eat those sometimes too.

If we are getting more specific, I used to love lima beans. I used to pick them out of the frozen mixed veggie bags that we would have sometimes. Hated mixed veggies, loved lima beans. WEIRD. Now I can't stand them. I mean, I would eat them in a mix of other things, but I surely don't seek them out! :D

cottage cheese - don't like the consistency any more

raisin bran - way too sweet for me now even with the fiber. as a kid, used to spoon extra sugar on cereal because it didn't seem sweet enough.

Ovaltine - But only because the company changed the recipe. I preferred the malted flavor to the overly sweet flavor that was introduced a few years ago.

Sweet drinks were a standard part of every day as a kid - "Tang" (orange flavoured crystals), or Kool-aid (with a full cup of sugar for every quart) as a daily thing, with Pic-a-Pop soft drinks for birthdays ( www.cdngb.org/index.php/picapop/history ) --- and ooohhh, we felt so grown-up when we were allowed an occasional Pepsi or 7-Up (very special occasions only - too expensive to waste on us kids). Canada Dry Ginger Ale was a sure sign of illness in the house... Summertime was all about homemade popsicles made with either the Tang or the Kool-aid.

Now, I can't even imagine it! I can manage an 8:1 water:clear fruit juice ratio when I need the calories when allowed no solid foods for medical reasons, but anything more than that tastes far too sweet to swallow...

Canned fruits were another standard - and my Mom fell victim to the 70's craze of adding all of them to flavoured Jell-o, putting it in a mold, and calling it "jellied salad". I liked the orange with canned mandarin orange slices in it, and the lime with canned pears in it --- and even straight Jell-o was a big deal! Those were special holiday meal treats, and I remember really looking forward to them. Again - too sweet to swallow now.

I always loved the standard Hallowe'en candy chocolates when I was little - the little "bars" of sweetness. I quit those in adolescence, though - when I discovered good quality dark chocolate and fell in love with the bitter smoothness instead.

Most of what I considered a special treat as a kid were super-sweetened and ultra processed --- and those definitely don't suit my preferences now!

My day-to-day absolute childhood favourites are still way up there on my list, though: sugar snap peas, carrots, rhubarb, cucumbers, and tomatoes washed under the garden hose and eaten while still standing in the garden where I picked them... My Mom's homemade butter tarts (frighteningly sweet, but incredible when frozen - I am hoarding some in my freezer right now)... Pirozhki stuffed with sauerkraut... Now I'm feeling both nostalgic and hungry!

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
paradox
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "
