Do you eat little more than chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, or no vegetables other than green beans, and no fruit other than apples? If so, you could be what’s called an Adult Selective Eater, which is basically a picky eater. “Picky eaters limit themselves to an extremely narrow range of foods,” as stated in a Yahoo! Health article, but they typically aren’t concerned about calorie counts or body image.
Some researchers question if this type of eating is a result of simply not outgrowing childhood eating patterns, or a new form of obsessive-compulsive disorder. The article also mentioned the concept of a “supertaster,” which is someone who apparently has an acute sense of taste that potentially could turn them off certain foods.
