Let see-

Soda- I used to have one of these per dinner but ever since I went to Uni, I switch over to juice (for some reason it no longer appeal to me) and I have never gone back! The only time I have them is with fast food like KFC so I pretty much stop buying them for myself.

Sweets- Seeing how my teeth are no longer durable (quite sensitive in fact) I have stayed away from them including the ones I liked i.e Drumstick, fruit pastel and etc.

TV- I can blame broadband for that.

TV shows- Ok there are still a couple I still watched for like Game of Throne and The Walking Dead but that it. I still haven't finish Season 2 of Daredevil!

Movies - I just don't have the attention span or interest to sit and watch something non-stop for an hour and a half anymore. Even when an hour and a half video interests me, I usually have to take a break for a few minutes to just look at something else.
Which also sucks because I'm taking a Film Culture class this summer as an elective and I haven't cared about a movie in years.

Breakfast - Everything about breakfast sucks. It's the morning, your stomach isn't ready to handle most foods, and breakfast foods are just boring and nasty. Bacon is greasy and gross, eggs are boring, bread is boring if it isn't covered in garlic. I've had cereal for over a decade of my life so eventually I lost interest.

The Common Cold - Sometimes I get a cold, accompanied with sneezing and stuffy noses. The cold makes me lose my sense of taste.

For me, most shonen anime. I liked it when I was younger, because it was different from anything I'd seen before. Also, like Madman said about about grimdark stuff, I liked how it had things that were off limits to most kids at least in my country.
Then I grew up and realized that there's a lot more to being mature than simply doing stuff that kids aren't allowed to do. I wanted shows that showed a bit more intelligence, or at least showed some self-awareness when they were being dumb.

I suppose it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that I eventually grew out of shonen, since the word itself implies that it is targeted towards teenage boys.

I take the ante of "men" and "women" and raise it to "I'm losing my taste for people". That's right, after years of cannibalism, I'm just outgrowing the taste; it's become bitter, salty and thick with fat as pettiness and entitlement seeps off the plate and try to ruin my best pair of Converse. Now I can't even look at the thing I used to devour without getting a sick feeling in my stomach and I can hear the words "check your privilege" and "cultural appropriation" echoing through my beautiful, privileged head.

No but seriously, uhmmmm I've lost taste in anime. I'll still go back and watch some of my favourite anime from when I was growing up and forming myself as a person but nowadays I just... don't like anything that's being made. Of course, this can be countered with "But Spidey you never HAD taste in anime". Yeah, well.... I like Soul Eater sooo you're wrong. Or something. Space Dandy! Wait, does that count?

I'm not sure what to blame this on and I feel bad admitting this but I've also lost my taste in reading novels. I don't like Young Adult crap and after Harry Potter, I've just lost interest in reading books. Granted, I still like OWNING books and I still do a lot of reading (namely old classics that I keep either in a physical copy or on my computer) and I'll spend hours reading on something like Encyclopedia Dramatica or TVTropes (not sure if those count tho) but I used to be a super big bookworm and I'm not anymore.

Also Panda Express. I used to love the hell outta Panda Express but now it just makes me feel sick just looking at it.

Riding the bad music hate train. There is still music that I really don't like to listen to and will even actively avoid, but I've stopped caring that other people listen to it. In fact, I think I can extend this to all forms of media. I accept that people have different tastes and it finally makes sense to me why something I dislike can still appeal to someone else.

I've also lost my taste for fantasy books, or most of them anyway. I'll make exceptions for authors who take it in interesting new directions, like Terry Pratchett, but the fantasy formula has worn out its welcome for me at this point.

Manga. For years, I used to read one manga book every day. Nowadays, it's just three a week. Five, max.

The main things I've grown tired of are:
Metal music of pretty much any kind.
Displays of Southern pride specifically and any kind of "good old days" thinking in general.
People who use the term "SJW".
Reading fiction.
Watching nonfiction.
These damn students with their partying until 4am on Wednesday nights.

Edit: oh, and how could I forget, anti-vaccinationists. If I could just give Andrew Wakefield 30 lashes with a bullwhip I could die happy.

Junk food. This includes most candy as well as fried foods. I do like some dark chocolate but I don't eat it often and I'll still eat fries but at a rate of about once every 2-3 months but that's all I can stomach. I think anything that's been deep fried just tastes like deep fried batter. I've gone long enough without it that the only thing deep fried that doesn't taste disgusting is chicken and the chicken just tastes like chicken that someone fucked with. I'd rather just have the chicken.

Cynicism. I can't stand being negative or being around people who are negative 95-100% of the time. I've been that negative before and I just find it depressing nowadays. Some days I have to work at it but I try to maintain at least some degree or hope and optimism because god damn it's a sad existence to just assume that everything that exists is going to suck.

I also don't like any form of popcorn and I'd rather have water (or fruit) than juice or pop.

I agree and I'll add anyone that tacks on "gate" to a word or phrase.

I agree and I think I'll take that and broaden it to just about any word that is used to judge the character of an entire group. At this point, even "Republican" and "Democrat" put me off when they're used that way.

Soda is one of mine as well. For me it's too much sugar. And Mountain Dew is pretty much the king of junk food.

OT:
While I'm all for watching a new anime show, I'm not so into manga anymore. I used to buy it a lot as a teenager, but I realized it was too much of a money sink, and the time spent reading each volume was too short. All of my manga was donated to my local public library though.

TV is another one. Used to love it as a kid, but there were lots of shows that I prefer to watch over the internet.

Most sodas. These days I don't bother with 'em unless they're offered to me. There's only like 5-7 basic flavors anyway.

I wish I could say video games, but I can't be sure yet. Dark Souls III was the last game I legitimately anticipated with baited breath, and now when the honeymoon's over I'm legitimately thinking if I've lost interest altogether and could slowly start moving to more productive interests.

Not particularly new, but Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I loved that movie to pieces and saw it twice in theaters within a week, but it only took a few watches on DVD for the cracks to start appearing, and now I consider it a 7/10 at best.

The mindset that you need to "fight the man", "move your own way", "not play by anyone else's rules", "be yourself no matter what", "not bow down to the system" and whatever pretentious, quasi-rebellious anti-establishment twoddle like that you can think up. These days it seems that being for the establishment might be more anti-establishment than being "anti-establishment". It's such a childish and easy mindset to adopt, where you don't have to really ponder about who you are, what your morals are like, what politics you abide by, how you want to advance in your life and so on. The phrase "I don't give a fuck what people think about me" just translates to "Please pay attention to me please please please look how rebellious and totally irreverent I am!!!!" to me. As a teenager I saw talking points like this everywhere, and even then I thought "just being happy the way you are" was kind of an iffy proposition. Would you say that to, say, a child molester, a guy who gorges himself on 20 Big Macs daily, or an alcoholic? I get the idea behind the statement, but the way it was phrased everywhere always bugged me.

Supernatural: The guys are hot and all, but dear god just let that show die.
Dear fucking christ, this a thousand times, and I haven't even watched past season 8. Would I be incorrect in assuming it's just been Dean, Sam and Castiel chasing [insert powerful McGuffin here] while fighting [insert subsection of heaven/hell they're fighting this season] while going through identity crisis, saying they've lost so much and that there is no happy ending there for them while occasionally engaging in self-referential fanservice hijinks?

Seconded.

French fries as well. I used to get all happy when we were having french fries (with mayonaise which is the norm here).
That sounds distinctly Belgian. Where are you from?

OT: For me, First Person Shooters. I'll still play games like Fallout, Skyrim, Metro 2033, but multiplayer FPSs like Halo or CoD? No thanks, mate. Played a fair bit of PlanetSide 2 a year ago, but lost interest like with all the rest.

Also not really a fan of Punk Rock anymore. I still like what I term "classics" and what all the old school punks call "90s shit," but the old 80s hardcore and the 2000s new wave, can't stand it. I have 5 Rise Against albums sitting on my harddrive and I can only stand 2 of them. Really, I think I like exactly 4 bands and then a few songs on certain albums.

This thread is rated PG. For scenes of sex, aggression, strong language, Parasondox, and stupidity from the outset.

This doesn't have to do with food. It could be just other things too that you once enjoyed but just have no taste for.

Cinema Popcorn. Sweet, plain, salted, buttery (heart attack much), it's just so fucking dull these days. No point getting them which watching a movie.
after seeing civil war last night, I have to agree. Maybe it's my elitism for liking Vic's bagged popcorn from the store so much now, but movie theater popcorn is garbage in comparison and I could barely handle a hand full last night.

soda: I used to drink soda pretty much exclusively, like I wouldn't have anything else for weeks at a time, and it tasted *amazing*, and this past December I just decided to get on a health kick, quit it cold turkey and I broke all the habitual stuff I drank soda with, and I have no lust for it anymore at all.

reeses: I will still have a single reeses occasionally, but I used to be able to eat a king sized bag or two of reeses as a meal a few times a week, and it was the stuff of gods.

dating: I'm a straight dude who likes chicks only, so this applies to only that, but I'm sure I would feel this way regardless of my gender and sexual interests, but I've lost pretty much all yearning/interest in dating after my last few girlfriends..between the amount of effort/stress/gas lighting involved, I just can't take that anymore kind of selfishness and lack of respect anymore, jerking off is 100000x easier then dealing with that and having the benefit of sex, and while I love kids and absolutely want my own someday, I'll probably just end up adopting or something instead unless a surrogate mother would like to procreate.

The Preacher series, by Garth Ennis.

Jesse Custer is a small-minded, arrogant, self-righteous, nationalistic, thieving and incredibly violent asshole who belongs in prison.

He's not a damn hero.

[REDACTED] Trix cereal! Apparently, I stopped being a kid before age 12... [REDACTED] you, Trix! You ruined my [cereal] milk the same way Coco Puffs and the like did beforehand!

Other than that, ironically, ignorance... It isn't as bliss as it was when I was younger...

The Netherlands, which is right above belgium. :p
I was pretty close. I imagine that in addition to language (Flemish is a flavor of Dutch, right? I haven't been misled by my classes?) you'd share some customs and cuisine. Still not sure what the fascination with putting mayonnaise on bloody everything is, though. Then again, mayo in the US is kind of... shit, so maybe the stuff you're used to is actual edible on more than just sandwiches.

Metal Music: Used to be right into it, but these days I've moved to more calm music. Probably related to ...

Binge drinking/drug use and the culture that surrounds it: I used to love nothing more than getting drunk or high, but these days I prefer sobriety. I've also grown to dislike the reverence certain people have for taking massive amounts of drugs/alcohol, especially chronic usage, such as people who think they're cool because they drink/use more, more often.

Edginess for its own sake: This post alone is probably painting a far clearer picture of my past than I'd like, but I've grown to dislike the culture that surrounds places like 4chan (/b/ in particular). You aren't cool just because you don't care about offending others, nor are you cool for being oh so above feeling compassion for others.

Memes: Used to like memes, then I realized the cake is a lie. Hahahahaha, isn't that hilarious? Do you get it? That's a thing that someone said once, and now I've repeated the thing. Did you get the reference? Are you in the know about such matters? Are you keeping up with current internet culture?
That's basically what a lot of memes boil down to; a reference that we've all agreed to laugh at, until it wears out its welcome but continues to stick around because new people are constantly discovering it. I'm so sick of seeing the "Darude - Sandstorm" joke get used over and over, and I'm getting increasingly sick of certain fanbases. It's pretty hard to find a single Red Letter Media video that doesn't have a comment somewhere on the first page referencing any of the following: 12 years to make; it's like poetry, it rimes; I've gone to far in a few places; we can diminish the effects; it's so dense; Jar Jar is the key to all of this; hack frauds; or anything else that shows up in the prequel reviews.
