Do you or somebody you know obsessively chew and spit out your food? We want to help!
Chewing and spitting disorder (CHSP) is the act of chewing your food and spitting it out before swallowing. This is often done in conjunction with other eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia. Chewing and spitting can become an addictive behavior that interferes with daily activities. People who chew and spit their food can be at risk for improper nutrition, ulcers, as well as other damaging physical and emotional effects.
