For curiosity's sake, has anyone else experienced the slow but sure dislike of a food item that was once a comfort? I have been, and I can't decide if it's just me being very very sensitive because I have been under some reasonable stress and I'm in a very new setting and I'm not used to it just yet, but I have noticed that I cannot handle many foods or drinks lately, or even the temps of them. I can no longer handle cold drinks, I still don't prefure hot food, and I have relised that if something has "Too Much" flavor or seasoning I won't eat it. Even when it comes to what were once comfort food/drinks. I used to love teas and juices and now when I even just think about it I would rather have water or nothing at all, and its usually the nothing option that wins. I'm also not sure if this is related to my ARFID or not. If it were up to me id eat next to nothing and just have water all day. Has anyone else experienced this and/or is there a way to help or just wait it out?

      Yeah, for a long time I was really loving spicy popcorn, but it was never in stock, and then once it was back in stock I got some and could barely tolerate it. It's happened to me with other foods also but that was the most jarring one for me. When it happens you kinda just gotta go "oh well" and find something else that is reliably edible, or find small but nutritionally dense things to kinda just get it over with.

      Yes. I have the thing I call "getting it out of my system". Happens with anything food especialy. With mild ADHD that is not enough present to get diagnosed, but might still make you feel "that doesn't feel like ASD". For example getting fixated on something and in few months "I'm done with it forever now". Or It might be one or two types depression. One type is emotional, caused by something (from what you said it can be stress responce) other is physical, like geting sick without symptoms or eating spoiler food, but it wasn't spoiler enough for food poisoning.

      I’ve experienced this my entire life my parents used to get so frustrated because they would bulk buy my favorite foods then all of a sudden i dont like them at all anymore. For example when i was a kid for like a year straight id eat 3 bananas a day i was obsessed with them but one day i took a bite and hated it and havent eaten them since
