Taste and chemo: Make sure you use your nausea medicine on a regular basis. Sweet potatoes and black berry wine also help with nausea which can affect taste. Otherwise you really need to try foods you did not like before, mild foods, and think of the food you are eating as medicine and not optional. Hang in there...It will get better!

Taste chages: I agree with my colleague's answer. In addition, you may want to put a little bit more spices on your food , and a little bit sugar or salt to enhance the sensation-off course-with caveat that only if your other medical condition allows you to do so.
