i eat and crave clay everyday but only when i see it :( i have been trying to stop for the past year buti cant. i stop for a few days but not without trying to fight the craving, i eventually give into the crave and eat.
anyone know how i can stop? FOR GOOD!!!
Out of sight out of mind!! U said u crave it only when u see it so make sure its not in view. Don't buy it! If u don't have it in the house u wo t eat it. A craving only lasts 20minutes so find something else to do in that time.

Hello everyone. For all those that have eat mavu clays can u tell me which one is the nicest?? Thanks.
Hi Carey I've tried them all but my favorite has to be the red soil cake. It's earthy and compact meaning I get to keep track of how much I'm eating too. Yummy!

That has to be the most nastiest things I've ever read on this forum!! Sorry I know it sounds harsh but aren't u afraid of salmonella and I'm sure there less riskier sources of calcium. I don't want to judge but make sure you've done your research!

I have never thought of doing this, but I have now read that there are people who do this for - calcium and people like us with cravings.

Most people would think that all the things we eat/chew are disgusting, and I don't see where egg shells are any worse (as long as they're sterilized). They seem so sharp though!

I'll have to take a little bite next time I boil eggs.

OK..

no dis is smthng weird and crazy I did just now..

I've put few pieces of Red clay from Leslie (Georgiawhitedirt)& White one from Wanda (Goodoledirt), 2-3 soft n hard clay pot pieces, 2 small pieces of slate pencil .. n got a powdered mixture of them. Firstly, thot to make a paste and make a chunk out of it but.. found da powder much interesting to munch on!! ;)Its gritty cuz of clay pot pieces n lil creamy due to white dirt!

munching on now n then.. ;)lol

Eating the chunks feels lyk they can b finished ny moment but munching on the powder fr every few secnds feels lyk I can taste all my fav things in one single munch for a longtym cuz da powder can last long.. ;):D.. rly goin clay crazy!!

Jus thot to share it wid all the crazy Clay loving ladies out here !!

Tat's all!! Also thot to add few pieces of chalk to this mixture but this alone has turned out to b a nice relaxed munching powder!! hahah!!
