has anyone ever heard of this?
This works: Chew your food 30-80 times. Your food will be mostly digested in your mouth so your body absorbs hardly any of it. AND your jaw will be hella tired once your halfway thru your meal.
wonder if it really works.... maybe it'll help my weight loss

Mastication of almonds: effects of lipid bioaccessibility, appetite, and hormone response

Background: Epidemiologic and clinical data indicate that nuts can be incorporated into the diet without compromising body weight. This has been attributed to strong satiety properties, increased resting energy expenditure, and limited lipid bioaccessibility.
Objective: The role of mastication was explored because of evidence that the availability of nut lipids is largely dependent on the mechanical fracture of their cell walls.
Design: In a randomized, 3-arm, crossover study, 13 healthy adults (body mass index, in kg/m2: 23.1 ? 0.4) chewed 55 g almonds 10, 25, or 40 times. Blood was collected and appetite was monitored during the following 3 h. Over the next 4 d, all foods were provided, including 55 g almonds, which were consumed under the same chewing conditions. Complete fecal samples were collected.
Results: Hunger was acutely suppressed below baseline (P < 0.05), and fullness was elevated above baseline longer (P < 0.05) after 40 chews than after 25 chews. Two hours after consumption, fullness levels were significantly lower and hunger levels were significantly higher after 25 chews than after 10 and 40 chews (P < 0.05). Initial postingestive glucagon-like peptide-1 concentrations were significantly lower after 25 chews than after 40 chews (P < 0.05), and insulin concentrations declined more rapidly after 25 and 40 chews than after 10 chews (both P < 0.05). Fecal fat excretion was significantly higher after 10 chews than after 25 and 40 chews (both P < 0.05). All participants had higher fecal energy losses after 10 and 25 chews than after 40 chews (P < 0.005).
Conclusion: The results indicate important differences in appetitive and physiologic responses to masticating nuts and likely other foods and nutrients. This trial was registered at clinicaltrials.gov as NCT00768417*perfer et obdura; dolor hic tibi proderit olim*

I'm not an expert in the matter, but logically to me this doesn't make sense. Sure the food will be further broken down in your math, but the nutrients don't suddenly disappear. It would seem to me the only change is that the food will spend less time being digested. In a way that would always make me believe that it will actually get absorbed FASTER than just eating it normally.

dont you only have enzymes to break down certain macronutrients in your saliva though? and that study was kinda all over the place with its results.
-they were less hungry after 10 chews (less) and 40 chews (more) when compared to 25 chews? thats pretty much a no result?
-Insulin declined slower after the higher number of chews (this supports OP's idea)
-fat in the feces was higher when you chewed less (doesnt this actually go against the OPs idea and say chewing less would be better for fat loss?)
