    Any tips to resolve/minimize this? It's diving me up a wall. I thought it was bulimia cheeks but I saw someone in another thread bring it up and it all came together.

    Do you guys count how many times you chew your food before you allow yourself to swallow it? I've started doing this, idk how normal it is or how many times other people do it. for me it's a minimum of 20 but sometimes up to 50.

    Anyone else out there notice that chewing and spitting some foods is easier because they don't disintegrate and get swallowed easily? Meat and nuts (especially almonds) seem like they're a bit harder to accidentally swallow so far but they're so expensive ;-; Share your go to c/s foods?

    My gag reflex started getting worse day by day until it disapeared almost completely. So now I can’t purge normally, it hurts a lot more more and takes too long and I get almost nothing up. Does anyone have experience with this? Will it come back? Can I use some other method to purge? What...

    I'm not new to this.. far from it... I'm just so extremely upset with myself right now; I was down to about 75lbs, and I'm not sure what happened, I just looked at myself in the mirror & thought I looked too thin. Because for the past several years I wasn't doing this to lose weight, I just...

    So I gathered some safety tips from various discussions on here and thought I would share them and see who agrees if these work? These are both aimed at safety and low-calorie options for anyone worried about that. Before a purge: -A teaspoon of baking soda in a shot glass of water to reduce...

  15. Anorexia Discussions
    So I have been dealing with this issue for a few months now, but I am painfully addicted to chewing/spitting food. Not healthy food (I will swallow that), but I'm talking things like PopTarts, Cookies, and Cheetos. I am very anal about not swallowing ANY of it, though I obviously absorb some of...

    I live with my parents and in August I’ll be with a roommate in college. Lately I’ve been chewing and spitting into bags in my room and throwing them out into our dumpsters along with my room trash. In college I wont be able to do that since I’ll be sharing a room and a toilet. Any advice?
