The notion that food preferences can't be changed is called inflexible palate syndrome. An inflexible palate is one that does not tolerate new foods. It prevents people from even starting to change their lives. They believe that they can't eat better because they don't like the taste of healthful food.

By systematically changing the foods that we eat, we can reprogram our perceived taste responses.
