Ive been reading your posts about it and what others have said. I'm curious to try it out. But to be honest I think when I have a few chunks of the clay I will be fine. Dont really want a box of 500g of DE and bring more problems on myself when I end up liking it too much lol. How are you finding it? Do you find that it satisfies you just like the Nzu?
it may notbut the fact that its food grade and has no salt makes me more comfortable.you have been off this for a wile,I'm sure it will be easier for you to ease the crave with the DE.I'm not sure yu will be hooked.I have mine here and after I helped myself with it I've not bothered,I would love to have nzu or the gana one but the crave isn't so baddddddd.

@Adaku - So she called and has sent it on special delivery, so I will receive it tomorrow morning as she says. So lets see. I cant believe after so long I will have some. But this will just be it. No more after this...my next challenge will be to go without it for 2 years or more and fight this for good....

Its something about this white powder called cornstarch and this white dirt that is irresistible. I'm sitting at work right now craving both of them. This morning I wanted to put some cornstarch ina plastic sandwich bag to have as a snack at work. I'm working out with Zumba but yet still eating cornstarch. I'm 5' 8 1/2 and I weigh 155. It doesn't look it bcuz I'm slender but I want to gain weight so I keep eating cornstarch but nothing is happening. When I get home I'm going to finish the box. Has anyone ordered any white dirt recently?

If you type in kaolin in the computer you will see a lot of pictures of clay. Clay shown in the mine setting. Also in its natural state

@adaku I am not sure if you sent me an e-mail but please check your mail I sent you one. It is important.

I recently ordered some white dirt and it was expensive but I decided to treat myself. It is creamy,chalky, crumbly and earthy. I have been eating it in moderation.

You are so lucky you don't gain any weight with the cornstrach that's my biggest problem smh if I did not gain weight eating it I would have never stopped lucky you. Wish I could say the same it also made me very short of breath easy just walking up 12 steps I would be so out of breath.

Its raining here in Va and when I went outside this morning the smell of the earth hit me like a ton of bricks. I just kept inhaling....lol! Since I didn't have any white dirt I settled for my cornstarch. I had 2 heaping tablespoons before I headed to work. I'm going to break down and purchase some dirt I've been putting it off but I gotta have it!

@Adaku, it arrived this morning!!! I have about 12 pieces. After not having it for sooooo long, the earthy clay smell literally reminded me of the old days lol! Ive had 3 already. It still tastes great. But its great whilst Im having it, but when Im done...it feels weird, like "woman you are eating clay...earth" lol. Like I said, not having had it for 14 months, after this, I wont be ordering further. I just wanted that taste and funnily enough, after having just 3, my craving has gone. But I know I can finish the rest today if I wanted to lol. Plus im sure the moment it finishes, I will be craving it again. Oh well, as long as I dont buy more, I dont have any to eat.
