started doing chew and spit today and so far feels like a good plan for when you get intense cravings. i researched it and totally understand the consequences in terms of your health (gum deterioration, ulcers etc.). In my opinion these things probably happen to those who c/s in a binging method and do it very often. If im only doing it like once or twice a day for only 5-10 miuntes at a time to satisfy chip, chocolate cravings or a dinner that my mom made that she wants me to eat, i don't think there is as high of a chance of me rotting my teeth or getting an ulcer. i also see lots of posts about people actually gaining weight because they do hour long episodes and accidentally swallow the food, my question is has anybody actually lost weight doing c/s if they are using at as a craving satisfier not a binge? let me know if you lost weight and how much/how quickly you lost it, thanks!

Well with c/s you can get tmj in your jaw with the amount of force it takes to chew then immediately spit out the food avoiding swallowing, so I would not recommend for super chewy foods or melted foods like chocolate. When I c/s its just like starchy stuff (chips, fries etc)

I chew and spit at least once everyday. Usually a complete meal (cereal, oatmeal, pop tart, breakfast bar, sandwich etc) and I've been losing weight. I also almost never swallow my food accidentally, I think it mostly depends on how you chew and spit the food. I hold it mostly in the front of my mouth and am sure to spit it out when it's starting to get all in my saliva and stuff really building up and then I spit a little extra so get the rest of my flavored spit out. (Sorry, I know that's gross) I also use my fingers to rub around my the sides of my gums and swish with sink water to make sure I get any that I could swallow completely out. Even if I do swallow some, it's so slight that it probably can't even count as a small tsp. I use it to pretend to eat things and for cravings too. I think it's fine as long as you're careful about swallowing it or not. I've even put some drink in my mouth and swished to get the taste then spat it out, and swished with water afterwards and spat. It's really helpful to chew your food really well then spit it into the sink drain, because it slides down really easily and so it makes it easier to get rid of.

I'm confused, how do you C/S infront of your family for a whole meal!? I've only ever chewed as much as I could and spit it out into a tissue pretending to wipe my nose with a cold, just literally once tho otherwise my fam will be on my case like I'm a criminal.

sorry for late reply, idk if this was directed at me or not, but i usually do not eat meals with my family, we are very casual about that kind of stuff so i always eat in my room and then i just spit into garbage in my room or in bag then poor bag into toilet and flush!

I feel like I gain weight from chew/spit too much.  That's maybe just me, though.  I do it way too much, and I waste a lot of food and money on it.  I also know that I swallow some (sometimes purposely, but sometimes accidentally because things like frosting and chocolate are melty and hard not to swallow).  When I'm done chew/spitting food, I have no idea how many calories to record.  For me, it's also never satisfying.  I can chew/spit an entire box of donuts, at which point I've likely swallowed at least one donut's worth of calories, but I don't know for sure, so I have no idea how many calories to record --- AND I am still craving donuts!

 

My New Year's Resolution, decided right now: Stop chewing and spitting food!

 

It's surprisingly addictive, and for me, it is not helpful at all!

This is exactly what I do. I consistently lose this way.

The only possible ways you can gain when you c/s are if you are actually swallowing a significant amount of the food, or if you’re still eating more calories than you burn the rest of the time. It’s not like there’s some magical way that c/s puts on pounds.

Very addictive.  And it can really cause weight gain because insulin is activated the moment food is tasted, apparently.  So the actual amount of calories consumed is not particularly relevant.

 

I still end up doing it a few times a week, usually to "offset" a binge attack.  Nuts are the worst.

It's incredibly addictive!  I really, really do need to break the habit.  I need to find some kind of replacement behavior for when I want to chew and spit.  Haven't quite worked out what that will be.  If I can figure that out, I'll be set, I hope? ...

It’s true about the insulin release. But that wouldn’t actually cause you to gain weight, would it? It might just make it more difficult to lose.

I do lose very consistently with c/s, for what it’s worth. I also exercise and track my calories, so it’s not like it’s magic. But it keeps me from bingeing and lets me have all the flavors I crave.

I used to c/s a lot, it's actually how my ED manifested and I lost weight through that. It wasn't oodles, but it was about fifteen pounds in three months. 

But, it's also super easy to get caught. 

I used to hide my c/s food in ziplocks in a box, and toss them at night or when no one was home, and eventually got found out. Someone else already mentioned how they get rid of the evidence, just be mindful that it can be a pretty big hassle, especially if you're like me and paranoid of clogging the sink or toilet  :P 


Basically, what I take from the mixed responses is that you can lose weight, but it really depends on the method. If you're careful and thorough, you're not likely to gain. If you swallow a significant amount from your session, or if you obtain excess calories from elsewhere, then you'll likely gain.

It depends how well you continue to metabolize insulin, I guess. I don’t understand diabetes very well but that’s apparently part of the weight issue with many diabetics.

Hormones are crazy monsters!

Good points! I’m apparently lucky in that regard.

I wonder how much getting regular exercise is a factor? I’m pretty religious about getting in at least half an hour of good exercise every day.

Exercise is absolutely a factor! I know plenty of sources say just maintaining a deficit is all you need, and if all you care about are numbers that’s sort of true, but if you care about what those numbers look like, you have to exercise. Can’t spot reduce fat, but you can encourage fat to vacate the overall premises more rapidly. I exercise every day.

Some say it’s 80%diet, 20% fitness. I think it varies from individual to individual, and definitely with age.
