Chewing & Spitting (Chew-spit)

Chewing & Spitting (Chew Spit) is the compulsive practice of chewing up food, then spitting it out. The behavior, which can occur in the context of a binge, aims to satisfy cravings-- typically sweet, high calorie, or "forbidden" foods--while avoiding their calories and weight gain, though it can have the opposite effect. Chewing and Spitting can result in a host of medical complications. May also be referred to as Oral Expulsion Syndrome.
