ThoroughbredJumper, you won't believe how picky I used to be! It's just plain embarrassing when I look back on it. However, now that I'm a LOT better I don't think it's a matter of really having certain tastes, I think I was just afraid to try new things.
Anyways, cut the fast food almost entirely out of your diet. It will be hard, but so worth it. After a while you don't even really crave it or want it anymore. You don't have to go cold turkey, if you currently eat fast food say...five days a week then eat it four or three days a week, and so on.
Next, try to introduce some variety to your diet. I know it might be hard being allergic, but diets tend to be "boring" even for people who aren't allergic to a lot.
After you feel comfortable with those changes, try cutting down on sugar- most Americans have way too much, and if you drink soda, you probably do as well. I highly recommend cutting soda almost entirely out of your diet along with fast food. Again, it will be hard, but after a while you stop craving it.
Then, start adding healthier things to your diet slowly.
And I have to say, I really respect that you realize your diet isn't healthy and you want to change that even though your weight is healthy. :)
Saddlebag, I also read labels, though I haven't yet used the "ose" and pronunciation rules. I really think I am going to start doing that, though.
Lexiie, congrats on the weight loss! That's amazing! Just watch with the running, especially if you run on a hard surface like the sidewalk or the road. That's about how much I used to run a day and my knees started to hurt because of my bad form. Just wanted to give you a heads up, you probably have better form then me- I like to say that I am only the most
