Mock Food

When i was a vegetarian I never could stand fake meat dishes, and I have zero interest now in anything you make to try copy a high carb food in low carbs.
Just an aversion to anything on a plate pretending to be something it isn't!

Almost all pork products taste horrible to me now (yes even bacon). I'm fine with pork rinds (even though they smell like wet dog - they taste ok). Eggs are a little iffy. I'm fine if I eat them every once in a while (or in a recipe). But if I eat them every day they start to gag me (just smelling them can make me sick sometimes).

Love it. All the "just like the real thing!" LC recipes I've tried don't taste good at all. Wd rather just accept I'm eating protein, fat and veggies only.

I have never been a veggie eater except for corn, green salads and carrots. Green veggies I never ate by choice unless they were well blended into a soup, etc. I am trying to get used to having them as a side dish. It's not going well!

If you like raw green salads don't see any reason why you should make yourself eat cooked veggies. The concern would be if you didn't like veggies any way!

@Catzmom- I'm with Olive. Green salads should be good.

But, if you want to get more into green veggies, there is not much yummier than roasted broccoli! Either on a foil lined cookie sheet, or on the BBQ in a packet! So very good!

In the oven , I toss the broc in a large bowl or ziplock with minced garlic, seasoning of choice, oil. Lightly toss , spread single layer, top rack, 375 for 15ish. Med brown spots but still tender crisp.

On the barbie, we use a butter/oil blend with minced garlic.
Omg the florets get infused with the butter and caramelized and its so good!!

^ also, have you tried sugar snap peas? Not those wilty snow peas, but the fresh, chubby sugar snaps. Prep em and try with some fresh buttermilk ranch for dip.

Coconut flour. I haven't made anything with it that tastes decent. Yuk! The funny thing is I like coconut itself. And I cook with coconut oil. But the flour just ruins things for me.

Probably eggs for me, too. I don't hate them, but I get sick of them pretty quickly when I'm LCing.

I'm not crazy about the fatty cuts of beef, pork and chicken, never have been. And coconut oil is something I can't go overboard on or I feel a little bilious. I do like the coconut butter though --- I just haven't found a lot of ways to use it other than eating a spoonful now and then.

Same. I like coconut butter/manna but not the oil. I blend mine in protein shakes. Just an idea.

Right. Raw, green salads have way more nutrients in them then canned green beans or whatever.

I like bacon, but I only eat it a few times every few months. I don't go crazy over it. When I do eat it, it's only 3-4 slices.

I think most of us on Stillmans gladly exchange food enjoyment in the short run in order to get such quick losses. Its not a long term plan, and we all know we're going to end up switching to another WOE at some point.

I need those now!

I find that almost any cooked veg tastes better with lemon butter or a sprinkle of parm on top, too

Pork rinds. I can't get over the smell. I've never liked them. And then every once in awhile I'd try to eat them and find a hair or two sticking out of the skin and that did it for me. EW.

Right now though it's ground beef. I made some bacon wrapped mini meatloaves, and while they keep me full, they're so rich and just yuck. Ground beef, even with a carby bun, has always been something that kind of nauseates me but the bun made up for it.

I've never really liked oopsie rolls. A lot of work and I am actually happier just eating bunless burgers.

I HATE meal replacement shakes and smoothies of any kind. Bleck. Even a yogurt smoothie with fruit and stuff. Don't like drinking my meals.

I hate avocados. They are nasty.

I won't eat blue cheese or any other stinky, moldy cheese. LOL

I won't eat liver or any other organ meats, even though I know they are good for you.

I hate raw celery and raw onions.

ribeye steaks
fast food burgers
mayo/ranch/blue cheese
lots of butter or sour cream
low carb products like bars
pork rinds
mock recipes (it's cauliflower and no amount of cheese will make it into mashed potatoes)

and things like splenda/sf syrups/shiritake noodles (they don't even seem like food).

I even like raw spinach in my salads. Cooked green veggies - no. Although in a Chinese stir fry, they kind of blend in, so I do eat those. Before I give up, I will try some of the suggestions here. I have had snow peas in Chinese food, but not any other way. Never cooked broccoli like that either, I will try it. Thanks!!!!

I am not a fan of pork rinds either. I can taste them no matter how I try to hide them.

So true. I often wonder if some people just can't taste the cauliflower like I can. Or tastes change and mine never did.

I will eat any legal meat and veggie but I cannot stand the fat on meat. An example would be the fat on a pork chop. I have to cut it off to eat the chop. I hate the texture in my mouth, it makes me gag.

I don't do stillman's but I think active avoidance of food enjoyment can be a very good thing. I think most non-fat people do it as a regular every day thing. They likely do eat things that they enjoy regularly, but I don't think that the enjoyment of food is the number one reason to eat something for them. For me, when I was heavier (and sometimes even now) I am very much driven by the enjoyment factor, which isn't right. I need to practice divorcing my enjoyment from my refueling. I have gotten better about it, but still a ways to go.

For a long time I didn't like eggs (unless they were over easy with toast), but lately I have been really enjoying scrambled eggs with bacon and sauteed onions, been eating them like 4 nights a week for dinner lately. And I HATED avocado. I am so happy that I have learned to love avocados now. It's totally weird. I didn't realize that I even could force myself to really truly like a food, not just tolerate it. But a while back I was eating a whole avocado every day, for a couple of months maybe, bc I just had this belief that they are great for you (sure hope that's right, lol). Then I gave it up, partly bc blech, I don't like avocados! But then a week or so ago I had one again and wow! It was so yummy! I'm gonna have one with my dinner tonight.

It will be sad if I get to liking avocados and eggs so much that I have to worry about enjoying them too much. Actually I'm having the same issue with cheddar. I never hated it like I did eggs and avocados, just didn't particularly like it. But now I *really* like it.
