Chewing and spitting out often makes individuals gain weight.  It can also wreck your teeth and is very hard to stop doing.  You need to looking into what is causing you to do this behavior.  If your were not chewing and spitting up what would you be feeling and/or doing?  Seek help and support.  For more information on eating disorders, visit the bella vita website.  Best, Dr Patricia Pitts  Los Angeles, CA

I am an anorexic and i thought it be ok to chew and spit food sometimes but it actually made me gain weight and made my glands swollen.and you probably swallow more than you think without even realizing it.  plus it gets very addicting and could eventually turn into bulimia.
