Is chewing and spitting considered an eating disorder?

Ice recently been doing this new thing where I chew the food and spit it out? Does anyone else do this? Also is this bad for you and is it considered an eating disorder? I've never had any eating disorders before but I have lately been depressed.

  • You already know it's bad because you're asking about it. Please find a doctor and therapist.

  • Yes. It's basically the same as anorexia. You chew for flavor, the habit and spit to avoid calories.

    • I don't know why I do it... I mean I know I'm not fat I just always feel disgusting after I eat. And no not really I only swallow what I can't spit out.

    • I suggest you talk to someone about this. It's good that you don't have body image issues (from a weight perspective) but you should address why you feel that way after eating.
