I've been drinking my foods for over a year now and I've noticed that I am having a hard time swallowing regular foods. I think I've forgotten how to chew my foods properly and have to really pay attention to what I am doing or I will get choked. Anyone else that has been here for a long time experience this?..

Wow, no, not me. The L&G and bars give you enough to chew on so that shouldn't happen. Perhaps it's a mental thing, are you afraid of coming off MF?..

So you have been on a complete liquid fast, with no L&G, for over a year? Wow.

If that is the case, you should probably post this to Nutrisystem and see what they have to say...

No, I've been eating regular foods and bars but lately I've been having problems swallowing and was wondering if this was something anyone else was experiencing or if it is a medical problem stemming from something else. Just curious before I make an appointment. Any ideas what it could be? I was thinking that maybe my throat muscles weren't getting worked as much and maybe they were weakening or something. I don't know, it's just weird...

Ok, you said you had been drinking your food for over a year, so that is what I was responding to.

I definitely think you should get that looked at by a doctor, regardless. Good luck...

Comment #4

Are you having trouble swallowing because you aren't chewing your food enough or just plain swallowing anything. I'd advise consulting your physician too as Vie mentioned...

Go to your doctor IMMEDIATELY!!!!.

Don't mess around with this..

"trouble swallowing" was one of the first symptoms when my beloved husband had cancer in his esophagus. He put off seeking medical help until it was too late for long-term intervention. He would be alive today if he had seen a doctor when he first noticed it.

*** I do not mean to alarm you, or suggest that you have cancer, but please, go find out for sure! It can't hurt you to be safe and find out it is really nothing..

Good luck to you..

Could also be acid reflux or something that your doc may need to investigate. Hope it is nothing. Ann..

Comment #7

Actually now that I think about it, I did have trouble swallowing a couple months ago. It hurt and I couldn't even swallow water. It turned out I had a stone blocking my sub-mandibular saliva gland (the one under the jawbone).

I hope you find out what it is, please let us know!..

Comment #8

I agree with the other responders - call your Dr. and please, let us know how you are doing.

Best wishes!..
