When I’m eating a very fatty food, even if I was initially really enjoying it and I found the smell appetizing- a few mouthfuls in I get this awful ‘ick’ taste in my mouth followed by a severe nauseous response to the point where I have to stop eating and try not to throw up. The food is not off or bad, but I can’t go near it ever again. Just the smell is enough to turn me green.
Pretty annoying when a person is trying to eat more fat! I actually love fat (mmmmm lovely lovely fat) and have no psychological repulsion to it, can’t figure out what the heck is going on. I’ve been this way since I was a little kid.
Foods that trigger me are any meat products with a substantial amount of fat i.e. chorizo or fatty sausages (unless the fat is totally rendered), pork/lamb chops (again unless the fat is totally rendered), and today’s discovery- keto pasta (made with eggs, cream cheese and psyllium powder) which I’d cooked then re-heated by frying in butter. I’m honestly gagging right now just thinking about it .
I’m a born and bred Aussie yet I can’t even be within sniffing distance of a Bunnings sausage sizzle without heaving. This is serious folks!
Does anyone else experience this or am I a lone weirdo? Has anyone got any tips to overcome this affliction?
