I like majority of good/healthy foods but some of it is simply disgusting. I honestly hate majority of vegetables. I love fruits, but I loath veggies, especially carrots. Carrots are disgusting to me. I have to force myself to eat healthy simply because I know how important it is to be healthy and it'll do me justice in the long run, but if donuts and ice cream was healthy, I'd be in heaven lol. Do you find that you have to force yourself to eat healthy?

I used to but I don't anymore. You see most healthy foods especially vegetables are what is known as an "acquired taste." Basically when you first start eating them they taste horrible but after a while they actually taste different and good.
Alcohol and coffee are two other examples. Most everyone who takes a sip of those at first makes a face like they want to spit it out. But they keep drinking it to wake up or get buzzed, and after a while it starts to taste good to them.
The trick is you need to force yourself to eat them for a few weeks or months in order to get adjusted to the taste. Also, it will happen much quicker if you cut back or cut out the high sugar foods. Its hard to find the good taste of carrots when you compare them to ice cream, lol.
One more thing, the carrots, don't buy them or anything else "pre-cut" in order to keep them looking fresh companies spray some kind of chemical on them. This chemical quite honestly tastes like shit, and might be making them taste even worse than they should.1
