I am really struggling here and I don't know if this is common. I eat a specific number of calories each day but I make sure to exercise each calorie away. Because I eat regularly, I don't get really hungry but when I do, I have been chewing and spitting my food. This really seems to help the "craving" for food without adding calories to my body. The problem is that I am doing it A LOT! Saturday night I c/s for about 3 hours straight. Sunday my jaw hurt so bad that my bite was off. This still doesn't stop me, I just go for softer foods. I try not to justify it, but I only c/s healthier foods, organic/natural foods, raw nuts, cereal, etc. No "junk" or gluten just in case some of it does get absorbed into my body. I am spending a ton of money on food, just to spit out. How do I stop this terrible, gross behavior? Can anyone relate?
