I'm not trying to argue if it's wrong or not. Only thing I know is that we love the taste, but feel guilty after ingesting candies and such. Is there any hormone response that's bad for our health just by tasting them? (more)

You can't afford a blender??? Go to the thrift store. Go to garage sales or look in the boxes they leave at the curb marked FREE after the garage sales. Or ask someone if they have an extra blender they're willing to part with.

I just read a comment involving the amount of chewing. All my life people have told me I eat too fast, and should chew more. I've tried, and I start out slow and speed up. Any tips on how to train oneself to eat slower? What exactly are the... (more)

It's clear which is regarded as polite in contemporary neolithic western society. But which is paleo?

Open mouthed if weight loss is the goal. Easier for food to fall out before mastication. Key: avoid mastication, it causes salivary blindness.

Since digestion begins in the mouth, and since there are leptin receptors on the tongue, would there be any benefit to digestion, leptin sensitivity, or other processes if the food is chewed extremely well? My whole life, I have 'wolfed' down my... (more)

There are a number of biochemical reasons to chew well relating to enzymes in saliva and mechanical breakdown improving digestion, but from another perspective it just slows you down a bit. The signaling of fullness to the brain is a bit of a... (more)

I used to nibble on mine when I was younger until they'd break off. Looked pretty ugly. Then I started applying a coat of nail polish topcoat (clear) because it tastes awful and acted as a deterrent to biting them.

Hi! I went to Whole Foods yesterday and found this little piece of beauty when I was going to check out. http://www.peppersmith.co.uk/ It's made entirely from natural ingredients and sweetened with xylitol. I quit chewing gum when I went Paleo... (more)

I know I am dragging up an old post, but just bought a box of 12 boxes of Peppersmith off Amazon. I work in I.T. and go through a pack of Extra a day and thought that I am possibly ingesting a lot of nasties. This is my 'best of both worlds'... (more)

Ok, sounds weird, but I regularly pull large pieces of fat from dried meat and chew and chew and chew for hours it seems, then the pieces go down complete and I wonder if I should have swallowed it or thrown it away. Can our stomachs cope with... (more)

I chew my bites of fat and meat about 3 or 4 times and then swallow. My stomach/intestines seem to cope properly with them... they would surely show up on the other end, if they couldn't... Somewhere (Stephansson?) I've read about chewing and... (more)

I thought I'd ask this because I haven't found a lot of info on it thus far... A post I read on PaNu mentioned tribal people chewing on leaves and bark etc., which made me think of asking this, and it just seems that humans like chewing on things... (more)

You can always chew pine or spruce resin. (Resin is hardened/crystalized sap)You can also make chewing gum with it. For the pine, melt it down through a strainer and add some beeswax and oil. Use equal amounts of pine sap and beeswax and add oil... (more)
