Novacaine imbued chewing gum. If you can't enjoy the taste of food, you won't eat nearly as much. Not to mention the embarassment of slobbering all over yourself when you try. Great weight inhibitor!

       Forget the weight loss I just want a peice or two twenty minutes before going to the dentist. (+)   

       Novocaine - no gain!

       And how would one continue to chew the gum after the initial numbness sets in? Numbing *gel* is very baked - intended for teething infants, but with many other dental uses; maybe it would be a simple matter to make it into a gum...   

       (I should get those wisdoms out sometime soon. Thanks for the reminder.)

       // it will assist with the chances of chewing chunks out of your cheeks//   

       Nuh-uh. Once the gum falls out of your mouth, you're done.

       it's like saying - if cigaretes don't have any nicotine, you'll smoke less cigarettes.   

       actually, I think you'd try eating in such quantity as to get the same satisfaction as you used to get when you could taste the food. my guess is that you'll eat a lot more.
