I workout daily, but I don't count calories. I do a few minutes of cardio and lift heavy weight. I am seeing changes in my body, but should I just continue this way. My diet is strictly paleo

Children tend to be supertasters (sorry, no data to back this up--just anecdotal) and probably as a result prefer sweeter foods. I could see the advantage to this being the avoidance of toxic alkaloids more common in bitter tasting plants.
