OVER Sensitive taste buds/cant eat hardly anything

    
Asked by Unregistered (Female; 22; When switched to hard foods from baby food, was unable to keep it down without gagging.; Relevant drugs:none ) on Tue 06, Jan 2009 07:37am

I have very sensitive taste buds and can not eat much of anything. I am limited to a handful of foods that are available to me and I am not sure what to do? I have tried hypnosis but I hate textures and most tastes. I dont eat very many sweets. I also eat hamburgers (well done), salami, chicken and pizza are my main diet. No vegetables or fruit. Very unhealthy and not sure what the next step is to do. Please help.

HI, Thank you for posting. You could be one of the 25 percent of the population who are supertasters: individuals who have heightened oral sensations from foods and beverages. Supertasters report a higher level of bitterness in spinach, broccoli, grapefruit, alcoholic beverages, dark chocolate, and strong coffee. They have less preference for foods that are rich in sugar and fat and avoid foods that are creamy, such as ice cream and mayonnaise. Discuss this with your doctor and seek referral to a nutritionist or dietician. It is important that you take in proper calories and nutrition. Nutrient supplements may also be indicated. Take care and regards.
