My statement about deprivation mindset was more directed toward the dieters and calorie counters. However, by spitting out the food again each time, does that not induce some sense of deprivation? By not actually swallowing, could you not end up associating a sense of never actually recieving the food you crave?
I guess, if this method had to have any useful application, it would have to be a short term one. By not actually ingesting, you leave room for more nutritious food and as long as you make a commitment to eat those foods, then maybe, swallowed cravings could be a way to gratify the individual psychologically. From that sense of gratification, its possible that the individual might be in a better attitude and therefore more willing to eat well.
