Yes, either swallow it or don't put it in your mouth. Why waste the food?

Like cow can you do that?? It’s one way to enjoy delicious food with none of the calories I guess.

I used to have disordered eating (not diagnosed disorder but definitely disordered eating) and do this all the time. Keep an eye on it as these behaviours can lead to more serious things.

I've done what you have written before with the exact same guilt pattern, but at the time I was diagnosed with an eating disorder.

I don't know about your situation right now, but yes - it is not a normal thing to be doing. It's absolutely okay to eat and ingest calories; we need it to live. If you find yourself struggling to eat, *please* seek professional help.

It's not ideal, sounds like you might be struggling with some eating issues. Talk to someone you know about it and see if they can help

Yes, it's disordered, particularly with the feelings you associated with food.
