Cants hardly stand sweets anymore!
I don't know what it is, but all of a sudden, since starting JUDDD, I can't stand how syrup-y sweet SF jello is to me; diet cokes with Splenda, diet Hansen's root beer, or any desserts really. Using less sweetener in my coffee, too.

sorry 'bout the typo in the title. That should read "Can't hardly stand....."

That can only be a good thing in the long term, hasn't happened to me though. :(

Sounds good, buttoni! :high5: I'm usually not big into the sweets except certain times of the month.

When my Mom was doing JUDDD (I haven't talked to her about it in a while to see if she still is), she also noticed that within a matter of time she was no longer craving sweets. And she had them sitting around in plain sight all the time, but just had no desire for them.

With me, I think I WANT something sweet, but than when I eat it, it just tastes awful to me. And THAT is definitely a GOOD thing, Cindy. Hope this trend continues. :)

I went sugar free several weeks before starting JUDDD, and it's really nice to not crave sweets all the time. I've eased up a bit now and eat something sugary on occasion, in moderation. I've found that a sweet treat doesn't trigger cravings if I eat it after a meal with protein & fat.

I know what you mean, since cutting my carbs back a few months ago, my palette has completely changed, and I am so much more sensitive to sweetness now!

I had some of my mums homemade fruit cake yesterday, and I had to cut off the marzipan and spread it with unsweetened PB instead, because I found it so sweet. And my favourite chocolate is now 90% cocoa, which most people find way too bitter....

I'm so glad that my tastebuds have adapted, as its better for my teeth as well as my belly!

That happened to me when I cut out sugar last Aug. I can only handle a couple bites of most sweet things now. I've started baking with coconut sugar and stevia, and that is better. But I can still take it or leave it.

I've been low-carbing for 3 years now and this has JUST happened since starting JUDDD. Didn't happen low-carbing. I find it really odd it just now happened to me after 3 years of LC'ing. I KNOW the foods I'm finding so sweet now haven't changed; it's my taste that has abruptly changed on JUDDD.
