    I realize this thread may make me sound like a crazy person, but I am going to post it anyways.

    For some reason I have these weird mental blocks that I don't like foods regardless if I have tried them or not. Sushi for example, I just had a piece of sushi and while I think I could get used to the taste for some reason it just makes me gag because I have always told myself I don't like sushi.

    Anyone have any tips for getting over this notion in my head that I dislike certain foods? Have I lost my marbles?

    I can't do fishy stuff, I'll eat sushi but stick to the meatier ones rather than going crazt on uni or ikura. Dislike eating most cooked fish and seafoods. I don't know what happened exactly, but I grew up on the sea in Australia, had great fish and liked it, but then later in life I moved to the midwest US and had to eat school cafeteria fish burgers - I'm thinking a bad experience with one ruined seafood for me forever. =\\
    I don't know how to get back into eating seafood, because I'd really like to. I can eat all kinds of things otherwise.

    Tomatoes. I'm not sure why. I know I love the smell, and I really want to enjoy the taste, but the second I start eating one, I just can't handle it.

    i always am able to eat and enjoy thing ii normally 'dislike' when im super baked. after eating the food high a few times i learn to enjoy it sober. ive used this technique to learn to like salad, raw vegetables and strong cheeses. fish is next on the list

    +1. Actually one of the only foods I really can't stand. Disgusting stuff.

    Meringue, flan, and desserts with similar consistency. I also can't eat most foods with mushy fillings such as jelly filled donuts and pastries.

    +2 to okra.

    I can honestly say there are no normal food I won't eat. Some I prefer more than others but nothing totally turns me off unless it's like beetle grubs.

    Pickles until fairly recently.. Not all pickled food, just pickled cucumbers. I still can't nor do I have a desire to take a big bite of pickle but I've come around slightly once I realized how great thinly sliced pickles taste on pork sandwiches of all sorts. BBQ pulled pork and cubanos aren't the same without a little hint of them.

    Cheese. Something about the smell is nauseating to me.
