    I eat a lot of paper. Maybe 2-3 sheets per night. I have no clue what is wrong with me, but I am not stuffing my face with anything bad am I?


    Just so ya guys know, I prefer Acid free 84 bright recycled paper.

    I heard eating paper can be toxic; they put a lot of chemicals in it to make it white.

    I've heard of anorexic girls that eat paper to make themselves feel full. They look pretty healthy so I say why not. (that last bit was sarcasm for the humor impaired)

    ...paper...

    well speaking from the viewpoint of science student, you eating a lot of cellulose and fiber which your body can't digest...so it may have a rough time on the way out if you catch my drift :smug:

    but hey, maybe you'll create the newest diet craze to sweep the nation :p

    Isn't there an actual disease that makes people want to eat weird things like that? I think mostly pregnant women get it.

    They crave things like dirt, clay, soap, laundry detergent, paper, and baking soda...

    Oh yeah, the disease is called Pica.

    It's a legitimate eating disorder.

    if you eat paper on a reguar basis, i'd say that you have more to worry about than whether it is fattening or not...

    Hmmmm.... I don't eat paper because I like it, or because I am on a diet. I eat it because i have some odd oral fixation. Ever since I quit smoking, I have been eating more. I will let you guys know when i grow a third nipple from eating too much paper.
