I think it's important to remember that simply getting up every single morning another day older slows your metabolism. People are extremely concerned with does this or that, but it's a natural thing that happens over time. Your bmr will go down as you get older and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

There's also confusion about digestion. It does start in the mouth, but it's enzymes in the saliva breaking down proteins; not calorie absorption which occurs later in the intestines.

People who use c/s, like myself, use it in addition to other restrictive techniques. I do it to avoid binging.

Digestive enzymes do release and start breaking down food in the mouth. A lot of junk has oil/milk & spice powder on it. Those calories are high, and would be stuck in the mouth. Also they unavoidably mix in with saliva, and are swallowed.

I c/s-ed every day for a few months during my worst relapse and lost about 30 lbs, without really rinsing super well between bites

take with that information what you will

I was c/sing practically everything though and barely eating so I probably just had a huge deficit
