So I’m in Toronto, on Baby Watch.  This means that I have bought a throw-away cell phone, like a drug dealer, only because AT&T has cut such a lousy deal with Canada on the iphone that it is STEWPID to do otherwise. That’s probably why the drug dealers buy them too!  Anyway, I’ve got this

I know it’s not cool to make Chewish jokes, but Oy, did we have a good time today!  The first Annual International Celebrity Charity CHEW-A-THON went off without a hitch.  Chewlia Roberts masticated on the red carpet.  Robert Downey Chewnior dazzled with his pearly whites and Judge Chewdy made sure it all stayed legal.  But

Chew on This

FOR A VIDEO TUTORIAL ON CHEWING: CLICK HERE There’s real science to this chewing business; in his wonderful book, The Power Eating Program: You are how You Eat, Lino Stanchich talks about the enzyme ptylin which is released in the saliva after some vigorous chewing.  This enzyme, critical to the breakdown of carbohydrates, is released

With the CHEW-A-THON fast approaching, I put together a little chewing tutorial so we could all get on the same page re: technique. For more info on the CHEW-A-THON, click here. Chewssica


As we gear up for the CHEW-A-THON starting September 8th, I want to give us all some inspiration.  I’ll be posting stuff on the physiology of chewing, the benefits, the technique… even giving a little instructional video.  But let’s start right now with some history: This guywas King of the Hardcore Chewers.  Named Horace Fletcher,
