Anybody still eat cornstarch on this forum or is it all clay eaters?
Mostly clay eaters, but a few cornstarch lovers too (including me). I think the cornstarch lovers here also love clay (including me, lol!)

100 likes = 100 free bags of original MAVU clay!
100 ? 100 free bags of clay ? That's a lot of clay for one person . There should be 10 winners who wins 10 bags of clay or 20 winners who win 5 bags of clay . Well I'm just talking . Who ever wins 100 bags of clay will be really lucky .

I do not think one person is going to get 100bags. I think she will be giving away 100 bags to various clients.

Hey Iris I'm also from S.A I stay in Pretoria, you should try eating uncooked food, e.g lettuce, carrots. Tomatoes etc. Basically food in their raw state. I've heard some people say iron supplements help, you might wanna look into that too. What kind of clay do u eat?

This is my story.

I started eating dirt cookie way back. I had all kind of clays, I had Dirt cookie and it was ok, but not satisfying. I had global food market clay
it tasted terrible, not satisfying. I had tropical food inc,calabaa chalk, which is like mavu, it is a type of kaolin clay from camerron it is ok, but it gives me tummy ache and a rash, I dont eat it anymore, not satisfying. I had soul sista ghana clay, TOO GRITTY TO ME, not satisfying. I had tropical food online, which is the marble clay,it was bitter, I did not like it, not satisfying. I had mutt and jeff, it tasted like cement, gritty
not satisfying. I had good ole dirt from wanda and it was ok, but not satsifying. I had Leslie's clay it was alright, not satisfying. I had Mavu clay, it was ok, not satisfying. I had Tanzania red soil
it tasted ok to me on first day, again not satisfying, I had tanzania white clay, tasted ok, not satisfying. I had another type of kalaba chalk from cameroon from a local african shop here in my town, it tasted sour, and ok, but not satisfying.

I HAD TRIED 12 DIFFERENT CLAYS, AND SOIL, AND DIRT, NONE OF THEM SATISFY ME. MOST OF THEM I LEARNED ABOUT ON THIS FORUM
I wanted to try Odowa and Nakumatt clay, which will not satisfy me I know, because none of these satisfied me.

I realized that I will never find any type of
clay, soil, or dirt that satisfy my craving, because this clay eating is an addiction. I was on a mission to find the best clay, to satisfy my craving, but I did not find it, and I will never find it. so as a result, Im droping this clay eating business.

BECAUSE THAT IS WHY ADDICTS END UP DYING, THEY ARE NEVER SATISFY WITH ANY DRUGS, THAT IS WHY THEY ARE ALWAYS TRYING OUT DIFFERENT DRUGS, SYNTHETIC AMONG OTHERS AND NEVER FIND A DRUG TO QUENCH THAT CRAVING
, THEY WANT A BETTER HIGH, AND AS A RESULT OF LOOKING FOR THE BETTER DRUG, THEY END UP OVER DOSING, AND DYING.

JUST A THOUGHT, THINK ABOUT IT

I really enjoy the original type Mavu clay, a couple of other things and especially the earthy material that I sometimes dig up locally (gritty, but often very earthy and a bit sour). These are very satisfying but I have a feeling that red dirt or soil would be the perfect thing for me. Mavu's soil cake has been getting such great reviews; I haven't tried it yet, but can't wait to try some!

Tell me, when you say you can't find a clay to satisfy your craving - do you mean that it doesn't satisfy at all? The clays/earth that I mention above satisfy me but it is always temporary. I could eat and eat (or chew and chew, some things I don't swallow) and feel temporarily so satisfied that I couldn't eat any more but the craving always comes back.

I wish I could get rid of my craving permanently, and only eat these things now and then as a treat (I can't imagine giving up entirely).

Tell me when this thread is updated:
