Before I “discovered” c/s I had the worst struggles with eating, BED, pretty much every aspect of weight loss you can imagine. Now I’ve dropped like 2kg in a few days. Let that sink in. Before, I was walking 9 to 13 miles a day and it still took me 2 months to lose 2kg. Heck, in all of October I lost an average of 0.3lbs. POUNDS. in September my average weight was 106.3 according to Fitbit. October was 106.0. Now my weight is 102.6lbs. In less than a week. I had tried everything. OMAD. Keto. Mono. Heck, fucking self hypnosis. I was on the floor crying after another binge. Every few days I’d binge. I’d cave in. My life was awful, filled with food, exercise and self loathing. And like I said, the weight wouldn’t budge, because after days of careful planning I’d STILL binge. I had read books on bingeing and self discipline. That’s why it took me 2 months to lose 2kg in the beginning. I remember the worst binge ever was order like 8 plates of food at an Indian restaurant and thought my stomach would literally burst, because I was sick of the struggle. I wrote pages after pages of journal entries trying to fight the binge urges. Idk why I’m writing my life story now. I thought I’d only write two sentences:
“Losing weight is almost too easy now. I wonder if there are other secrets to success?”
For example, studying. Or making friends. Just one secret to unlock all other. I guess for some authors it was “discovering binge urges are a different animal from your logical mind.” That may be good and all but I still felt out of control. I felt like c/s was a secret kept from me, and no one told BED fellas about it. Some ana-r’s never struggle with bingeing.

Idk. This c/s thing... I sort of think it’s like a godsend. Sometimes I wonder, “what’s the catch?” I feel like I “deserve it” for trying out all these stupid methods - but I also feel like, what if it’s because I never stopped trying different things? And then now I’m thinking, what if... there are other areas in life where if I didn’t just stop trying, I would’ve found the secret?

Fuck. I’m losing weight so damn easy now it’s insane. I also refunded an entire bag of chips and a handful of biscuits. This would’ve been a normal binge in the past. I think the only catch so far is the tiredness. And possibly malnutrition later, like I almost passed out walking today. Yeah.

I've been eating 900 to 1000 a day, when I cs everything I felt like death. exactly the same as if i would've been eating that amount to begin with. I also made another post just now that "did it rev up my metabolism?" because according to my calculations I should only have a TDEE of 1750 and a deficit of 750 to 1000 a day, but now my TDEE's over 2400! if you try it I'd like to know the results. I don't feel hungry at all but I'm super exhausted, as if I was fasting or smth or maybe it's doing something strange to my metabolism. a lot of what I cs is greasy but wholesome foods with protein and carbs I only keep down apples and oranges though

I also take regular whole poops too, which is so strange compared to the strained pellets I get when I even high restrict like this.
the only downside I've noticed is being like incapacitated after meals so for an hour I'm just lying on my bed. I wish there was more research into this. but I wouldve done the exhaustion nap from a binge anyway.

I dont eat in front of others, but if i did i could compensate later, so it's like a win win for me.
I have a large coffee mug I never use that holds a huge volume, I line it with a cheap trash bag that like $3 for 100, so that I do it at my desk and dont have to see it through the mug. I have a second large container to rinse my mouth in. I think its a lot of trial and error. I tried it in a ziplock bag and couldn't stand seeing it, or over the toilet and feared splashback, getting up and down, and clogging it.

Idk what's going on I reached my GW in a week and I've been trying for months to get past this plateau. C/S scares me how easy it makes weight loss. Now I don't know if I'll be able to keep anything down though. I don't want to keep losing to infinity I'm actually kinda happy where I'm at ._.

an acronym for chewing and spitting, which is, well, exactly what it sounds like. chewing something as if you were to eat it, but opting to spit it out instead

 

i am shamelessly addicted to c/s, and its been replacing my binges as of late

Interesting.

 

Are you tempted to swallow? If I attempted that, I believe I would not be able to NOT eat.

Yeah but that's when you spit it out. It's different for everyone and it does make some people binge instead. But it is neverending because the hunger never gets satisfied.

Ok, I am very interested in this..

 

So what do you usually restrict on and actually eat and what are the foods that you c/s, like is it mostly savory foods or do you c/s desserts and sugary stuff too? Also how much do you c/s, like what amount?

Okay it’s been a month and there ARE 2 catches:
1. My teeth hurt from c/sing so much, it takes up a lot of time
2. Accidental swallowing leading to binges :( but I find if I don’t swallow a single bite I don’t binge at all.
Lately I’ve stopped c/s altogether because I’m just in a give up hope mindset “binge out of hopelessness”, but it does work when it works.

I c/s’d everything imaginable, but it’s also very expensive. Pizza, burgers, greasy Chinese takeout, sushi platters, chips and cookies all day. You don’t get full so it’s easy to go through a lot of food and time. It’s better than absorbing the calories at least and takes care of binge urges too, and you’re not hungry afterward either. I went through 3,000 to 5,000 a day, a few times 9,000 calories. It was a lot easier to restrict outside of that, and based on my spreadsheet obsession you really do not absorb any calories at all. (My calculated TDEE remained 1700’s) imo its better than purging if you can do it (I can’t cs with others around) bc purging has a lot more health risks and sometimes “you can’t get it all up”

I see, thanks so much for the detailed response!

 

I'm also at a stage where it feels like I've tried everything but nothing seems to stop me from binging once the urges get bad enough. This is something I haven't tried yet, or at least not intentionally, but next time I feel like a binge is inevitable I'm gonna give c/s a go. I'd be happy even if it works sometimes, since the only options for me are binge or not binge (I just can't purge..) so this way I could at least have the sensation of eating but not gain afterwards

let us know how it goes!
there's more tips around here such as eating a low cal meal right beforehand and drinking lots of fluid to feel full. also I rinsed after every bite if that counts towards the fact I didnt absorb any.

You absorb calories even in the mouth too though don't you? How would you calculate for anything accedentily swallowed or absorbed?

No you don't. It's estimated you can absorb up to 5% of the glucose molecules in your mouth. Sugar is made of fructose and glucose together (the only pure glucose is a glucose tablet for diabetics) so this means up to 2.5% of just the sugars in your food. Let's say a slice of chocolate cake has 30g sugar in it. You will absorb 15g of glucose (potentially) which is 60 cals. Negligible and this is only if you keep it in your mouth too long. If you keep food in your mouth long enough the carbs might break down into sugar but it takes several minutes for this to happen and most have spit by then. Fat and protein and complex starches can NOT be absorbed in the mouth.

 

As for swallowing, well, everyone's different. Some people are sloppy at this and thats why they gain weight.
