Default Am I the only fatty with an aversion to fried foods?

In the last few years fried food, especially deep fried fare, has become my enemy. I can't eat it without becoming ill. I'll find myself craving french fries, but I can only have three or four before I start to feel sick. Same is true for hamburger patties, fried chicken, onion rings, just about anything immersed in boiling oil. The only things I can (just barely) tolerate are bacon, perhaps because it's frying in its own fat (why that's different, I don't know -- maybe I'm imagining a difference and fooling myself) and these lightly breaded and fried zucchini/cheese fritter things my mother makes.

Anyone with me, or am I a deplorable freak deserving of universal foodie scorn?

I am naturally small and the smell of fried foods makes me nauseous. I do crave greasy stuff once in a while but I can't stomach much. Bacon, baked and even breaded foods are usually fine, but anything battered and deep fried - ugh. I blame it on being brought up on a strict healthy diet by my parents.

Add me to the list. I handle a small amount of fried food once in a while, but greasy food will make me sick. I don't even eat cookies any more; they have more fat than I can deal with!

Fried food does the exact same thing to me. I really think it's one of those foods where if you stop eating it - you'll never want to touch it again.

I don't consider it a bad thing because it's not as if you're body needs deep fried anything. But a little while ago I REALLY wanted some tempura, I went to a restaurant and ordered some, and holy fuck I don't think I have ever felt so awful in my life.

I don't get sick from eating fried foods, but they're just not generally appealing to me. Just the smell of KFC is a turn off.

Once in a blue moon, I'll have some french fries, or some General Tso's Chicken, but that's about it. I can't remember when I last had it, so that tells you something.

Oh, but it really has nothing to do with your aversion to deep-fried food.

It depends on the food, and many times where I go. Like if I eat anything from McDonalds, I get sick, but depending on what kind of Chinese I have, I might come out ok.
I consider fried foods ok, but sometimes I choose alternatives if given the choice (I.e. Grilled chicken).

Within the past few years I've really been concentrating on the quality of foods I put in my body. Since making this change, few fried foods make the cut. I find myself with an aversion to a lot of foods I used to like. It depends more on the quality of the ingredients than the method of preparation for me. A few examples:

-Fresh cut frites with mussels from the Belgian pub- yum, these make the cut.

-Fried risotto balls from the Neopolitan pizza shop that are stuffed with fresh mozz made in house and fried in olive oil- also still delicious to me.

-Fast food chicken nuggets- no way man.

-Fried cheese sticks from the nasty delivery pizza place, stuffed with preservatives- no more.

-Frozen fresh fries that just come with your meal at restaurants. I find these to be nothing special, and kind of a 'waste' of eating, when I could be eating something delicious!

If I am indulging in fried foods, I tend to eat them in small portions. I'll only eat them from places I trust to use quality, natural ingredients. I also don't make them at home (one of the few things) because of the mess and oil disposal.

I hope I don't sound like a snob!

I bolded the items that stuck out to me because I have been trying/doing the same thing. I find I feel so much better when I eat quality foods and less preservatives. I haven't been doing so great lately because I've been kinda off track since Christmas and working my way back, but I spent the better part of last year using the same philosophy. It isn't about snobbery, just choosing to put better food in the body.

Rarely does my stomach feel okay after fried foods. I ate a bunch of pakoras today (battered fried onions and spinach) and they seemed to be okay but it might because they were sitting in my stomach with a big pile of other stuff.
I don't eat french fries anymore and i bake my mozzerella sticks now.

I had my gallbladder removed when I was 15, always had an issue with fried foods...even the smell of it. Over the years of ignoring being sick, has really done it's damage. I still eat the occasional fried food...but I do it in moderation, with some medication waiting...What have I learnt since my "new way of eating"...baked is good enough for me!! lmao!

I was going to say that if fried foods make you feel sick a bell goes off for me because before I had my gall bladder out I had the same problem. Maybe get it checked, don't wait until it gets infected like I did - bad bad bad stuff, dangerous too. I was very sick.

After gall bladder surgery? I can eat fried foods but I don't want them anymore. Weird.

Everyone is different. I have really watch fried foods, spicy food and dairy, since my gall bladder surgery. Everyone is different though.

I'm not a big fan of anything greasy... it grosses me out. I will eat regular fried fare like chicken fingers, fries, etc... but other than fish and chips, I don't go beyond much of that.

And if it's leaving grease around, or even really greasy pizza.... ick.

it depends on the oils for me... sincerely. I love olive and grapeseed, but carotino is my favorite. I use it making popcorn, potato pancakes, fish, fried dough... you name it. it's delicious

I usually wind up in stomach misery after eating almost anything fried, but every once in a while I have a serious craving for french fries or fried seafood, or hot wings. There are a few restaurants whose fried foods have never made me sick, but even so, I don't want to push my luck by overdoing it. As long as I make it a now and then kind of thing and stick to those places I never had trouble with, I can enjoy it and not pay for it later.

I've noticed here lately that fried foods tend to make me sick to my stomach..but I believe that is because I generally don't eat them anymore and on the rare occasion that I do they don't sit well.
