I just ate cereal for the first time in over a year.

    bought a box of that cinnamon toast crunch a long with a gallon of whole milk.

    After the first cup of the stuff. It tasted flavorful. Then as I began tasting my second cup, half an hour later, it began to taste kind of extreme. I remember in the past I would love to drink the milk after eating the cereal. But the milk tasted so disgustingly sweet. My body felt bad. I dunno if it's the sugar or the cinnamon doing that.

    Last week, I tasted some yogurt (you know the sucky low fat with tons of sugar to make up for the lack of fat, yogurt) for the first time in 2 years. And it too tasted just a tad bit sickeningly sweet after I ate it.

    Last week, I ate a box of raisin bran. While, it wasn't as sickeningly sweet as the cinnamon toast crunch, it did give a nice taste to the after-milk when I drank it. But a couple days ago, I paid the price for eating that stuff, as I forgot just how much fiber is bad for you. My colon was in severe pain for 15 hours as it tried to pass an enlarged stool through the colon wall on the right side of my stomach.

    I also tried a cookie with frosting on it, that was being given out as samples by the grocery store. That too tasted sickeningly sweet. It was like an immediate rejection.

    So I dunno. I'm kind of not surprised as much, and I'm a bit disappointed at the same time. I'm living in an extended stay hotel room right now, and I don't yet have access to the means to buy and cook my favorite carb, white rice. I used to buy a big old sack of basmati rice from this store, that would last me weeks, but I'm no longer there anymore.

    But I'm also proud of my body for rejecting these foods like that. Let's me know they're definitely bad. So I'm thinking, well, I'm experimenting with just sticking to fruits for my carbs. Except if I eat too many bananas, the potassium in them makes me sick of them. Hmm, maybe strawberries and grapes for now.

    It is amazing how they price the things that actually have real food in them. For example, a 113g "beef and bean" burrito that only actually has a tiny deceptive amount of beef in there that you can't even really taste, hidden behind some hydrogenated soybean oil and whey protein and textured vegetable protein and mono & diglycerides, which costs $0.42. That verses a 170g burrito made by a company that uses organic ingredients and none of that crappy stuff and actual meat in there that you can see and taste, costing $3.00.

    Now I dunno if I should throw away the $2.5 box of cereal I have here, or just finish it for the rest of the week and never buy it again.

    You typed out hundreds of words just to tell us that you do not like Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

    Basically, I'm just glad that my body has a strong negative reaction to foods with added white sugar in them, that I can actually feel, immediately upon eating them.

    But I'm sad that it means I can't be eating these foods like I once did years ago and that actual real food costs five times more than these foods. So I'm now tasked with the burden of figuring out the cheapest real foods that my body likes and my wallet likes.

    Yes, eating delicious junk food is one of the toughest things a man will face in his life. Good luck :)

    You see, if you spend a year, heck, even a few months or weeks, avoiding the garbage they feed us these days, you will actually FEEL awesome as your body detoxes and regenerates itself from the crap you've been eating in a way that exercising cannot do.

    And then when you taste that garbage again, your body will let you know it doesn't like it because your taste for it will have disappeared and you'll feel a nauseating feeling upon ingesting it.

    All I ate during 2013 was white rice, basic beef, basic chicken, basic fish, vegetables, and fruit. No bread, or anything with wheat in it. Also nuts and whole milk. And I felt so god damn good.

    You're missing my point. It's no longer delicious. It's DISGUSTING. The strong sweetness tastes and feels like I'm drinking arsenic and it feels like I ingested anti-freeze.

    Except I'll never eat raisin bran ever again. That stuff is so bad for your... well, my colon. It's like ingesting little tiny microscopic glass shards that cut at your colon increasing your risk for colon cancer and at the same time build up a huge stool in your colon that you're going to PAY with pain to get moving.

    It's come to my understanding that nobody reading this thread is going to understand what I'm talking about until they've actually experienced it for themselves, let alone be bothered to actually read what I said and consider it. So this thread is useless.

    It 's because real food costs more. Processed food is all over the place because it 's cheap due to low cost of production.

    You know what to do.

    Just throw away the box, too much sugar is really bad. And you might avoid the cravings if you don't eat it all.

    Cereals are just boxes of carbs loaded with sugar. Complete crap that was originally designed as a "better than nothing" for starving people. Get yourself a plate of bacon and eggs.

    This... This sounds like a medical problem... 15 hours of severe pain? Did you not like go to the hospital or something?

    Or maybe you think going to the hospital is "unnatural" and bad for your body or something?
