Not looking forward to weighing in today. I allowed myself a few treats last weekend (and failed to track well, at all), and have been trying to recover all week. I am not back down to what I was, but at least it's in the right direction. It just won't look like it at weigh in. *sigh*

Some things I've noticed...

People keep telling me fruit is sweet. I believe you, I do. However, I do not taste it. I never have. There's sour, bitter and less sour or bitter. When I eat even the "sweetest" fruit, if I'm expecting sweet, I will be disappointed. I need to be in the mood for sour or bitter flavors.

Perhaps that's why I don't like a lot of stone fruits. From what I understand, there's not much to the flavor besides the sweet, and to me it's a juicy pulpy mess with no real reward.

That said, I do eat fruit. It just doesn't do anything for me in the sweet flavor arena.

On another page - getting ready for a busy weekend. Whee!

I don't think that the primary taste impression of any fruit is its sweetness, so I agree with you there. Even fruits with high sugar content like apples, grapes, and bananas don't taste sweet to me the way that, say, baklava tastes sweet. But tastes do change over time. I used to never eat grapefruit without sugar on it when I was younger, but now I only eat it without sugar. I find that it has a subtle sweetness, and that it tastes better and richer. As always, YMMV.
