    Interesting small scale study of the way excessive sweetness changes our tastebuds in a very short space of time.

    I know that my tastebuds have changes a little since starting to Dukan - sweetness is so rare in pp foods that I find tomatoes as sweet as I once found apples!

    One thing I have noticed over the years is that our tastebuds as a society getting sweeter and sweeter - for example every year the selection of apples in the supermarket swings further and further towards the sweet end (pink lady, gala, etc) and away from the more acid (but still very tasty!) apples like cox and russets.

    I had savoy cabbage tonight and leeks and they tasted unbelievably sweet. Who knew?? It is almost as if my tastebuds have had a reawakening and food tastes like it did when I was a child.
