Wow...I have LOVED chocolate all my life.  I could have eaten it all day every day.  I have had some chocolate/chocolate ice cream/chocolate cake this week and YUCK.  None of it even tasted good to me.
I guess this is a good thing as the GI is pushing an anti-stone diet to me and chocolate was on the no-no list-the caffeine isn't good for me either.  I'm stunned...I always thought it was strange when a person didn;t like chocolate now I'm one of those people.
Hey Mom...another thing you were right about...I wear slippers in the house, keep my head covered in the winter, gargle with salt water for a cold and now my taste buds have changed with age.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

I totally agree that our taste buds change. I love things now I hated as a child and vice versa. I think part of it is also abstaining from eating certain foods for awhile. I know when I quit eating burgers for a year they tasted gross when I finally ate them again. Then after a few times of trying I liked them again. It is amazing.

Chocolate actually has some health benefits though...only the higher cocoa ones, I think it's 80% or higher, dark chocolate, and it contains very little sugar I believe compared to the lower % ones and milk chocolate is suppose to be the worst, way too refined and such.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

:(... I love chocolate, but I can't have it anymore because it hurts me... :(...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I wish I could develop a distaste for chocolate - and all sweets for that matter. I know that sugar is a no-no for us, but I have terrible cravings that I can't seem to tame. Diet is so limited and sugary foods seem to be safe ground as far as low residue is concerned. Wish I could snack on healthier foods like fruits, veges, and nuts, but since these are restricted I found myself consuming way too many sweets.

Anyway, just as I thought I was doing better, pow I got hit with a really bad flare, so I'm not eating much of anything right now. I'm overdue for my remicade infusion and have an appointment on Mon. Hope that helps. I'm really anxious and terribly fearful of having another blockage. Really bad timing for a flare (not that any time is good). Trying to train my new puppy and I don't want my hubby and daughter to have handle it alone.
