    I have been pondering on something....

    Out of habit the other day, I was dismantling (I don't know the official term) a cooked chicken and popped a bit in my mouth. I spat it out and just carried on, but obviously had the taste in my mouth.

    Since then, I have been wondering why most people have the psychological need to swallow their food. I'm guessing it is habit and instinct. But wouldn't dieting be easier if u could chew, taste and spit it out?

    I would never be happy doing this, as the 'need' to swallow seems to overpower everything else, but it is something I gave been thinking about.

    Very random!!!

    I'd say it's probably instinct to swallow food once it's in your mouth, otherwise why bother putting it in there? I won't try to analyse your musings too much!

    i remeber seeing on one of those ' old fashioned diets' or something and one of them was that - chew then spit out - I think it was in the Georgian era!
    Not sure if it worked tho!

    Well, the act of chewing something prepares your stomach to take in food. That's why chewing gum sometimes makes you hungry or queasy - it causes your stomach to produce acid to break down the food you're ingesting. So I don't think it's a great idea to be honest!
