Chewing and Spitting out food:
Dear Doc,
I have an eating disorder and i am aware of it - i am anorexic and bullimic.
But i have a question: if i feel that i am about to binge (which has got less and less at the moment), i have started to chew and spit out (and thoroughly rinse out my mouth afterwards) the food which tempts me. My question is: What percentage of the calories and fat of the food will be absorbed? Does any get absorbed, and if so how and where?
I you MUST you can BRIEFLY mention the dangers of chewing and spitting, but PLEASE answer my question as well.
