change in diet => change in taste
I have started eating a bit more fruit and veggies (cooked and raw) recently. i cut down partially on meats. i have cut out almost totally fried stuff, curries and caffeine from diet.
then i notice something.
i become sensitive to salty foods now.
what used to be my favourite foods has become too salty for me! I used to mop up the gravies. but now i drain the gravies away.
does anyone here have same experience after changing diet ?

Yes, I've been on a low fat diet for many years now and anytime I'm out in a restaurant that has an item with higher fat content, like butter, I can really sense it. Same thing with alcohol. I've drastically reduced it and now, just a few sips really go to my head quickly. Changing the way you taste things is also common after a change in diet.

Yeah this always happens when someone changes and evolves their diet. I think even Steve has said that once he went vegan he wasn't even able to LOOK at meat anymore as the sight of dead flesh didn't appeal to him at all.
Once you start feeding your body what it needs, it will tell you the stuff it doesn't need.
Our bodies are pretty amazing!

Yes. After over 4 months of cutting grains and cereals 6 days a week, my 'sweet tooth' seems to have increased slightly (even though I've lost 22kg) (48lb)).
This actually tallies with something I noticed a few years ago that 'slim people normally take sugar in their tea or coffee' and I think there's some research about that as well right now though I don't have time to google.

Some years ago, I drastically cut back on the amount of fat I was eating, and because I had a pretty high-fat diet, it was difficult at first (I actually craved fat), but once I adjusted to it, I found that high-fat foods either didn't appeal to me at all or if I did indulge, I felt quite physically sick after eating them. I was quite surprised by how well I adjusted, given my previous eating habits!
Also, fairly recently, I decided to cut back on the amount of meat in our family diet (specifically, I wanted to cut way back on the beef). I found that after not-that-long, I find that beef just doesn't appeal to me like it once did. We still eat it, but much less frequently, and if for some reason we eat more (as recently happened when my husband did the shopping and bought more than I would have), I really feel turned off by it. Apparently, my husband hasn't adjusted to that yet, but he may be continuing to eat beef at lunches, etc., where I eat mostly what the family eats (i.e., I don't eat lunch out very often).
One of these days, I'm going to do a trial of vegetarianism and see what happens with it, but it could be quite challenging to get the rest of the family to go along with it!
So, yes, it is normal for your tastes to change when you change diet.
