I did. Popped a marshmallow Peep in my mouth from Easter candy about 2 weeks post op. Chewed and spit it out in the garbage. Was very satisfied to just have the taste. And it curbed my craving.

I did this during my pre op diet, and have a few time after surgery. The way i see it is the only reason you really want to eat it is for the taste so just chew it and spit it. It worked for me.:rolleyes:

I do this when I realize that I'm eating a carb/bread before something else. I can't do that. Sometimes I pop it in before I really think. Did that this morning with my son's left over waffle. Then tried a sip of Protein Shake a few minutes later.......DON'T EVER DO THAT~!

I did it alot post-surgery. I don't do it now, come to think of it, but heck yeah, when I was adjsuting to the eating and all that jazz...once I picked up a piece of smoked beef susage kielbasi stuff that hubby grilled for him and the kids...I sucked that juicy fat right outta the end of it. Boy was that good.

I'm with ya Jack! Like celery! I had a bite of lowfat potato salad and after setting my jaw to pulverize I realized there was a small bit of celery Fiber that would probably start picking a fight with 'puckers'. So out it went.

I have spit perfectly wonderful bites into the trash though. When the full feeling hits while I am chewing I weigh my options carefully. Spit, or swallow and PB.

:eek: GREAT QUESTION!!!!

I have done this. I wondered if I was a freak. Not very often though. What I seem to have noticed, which I was sooooo surprised about, was that the swallowing provides much of the satisfaction. Werid, huh? Anybody else notice that? :D
