So, I am chewing on my fingers earlier, taking off skin as I do sometimes and got to thinking...does my own skin have calories? I would guess so...

Yeah but in your case your probably burned more calories chewing on your fingers than you got. You wierdo. You actually chew on your fingers?

Don't swallow any, and it won't matter.
Link Posted: 8/24/2005 8:22:41 AM EDT
Are you eating enough to be genuinely concerned?

Don't know if it has calories, I'd assume so....


I DO know you've got a wicked oral fixation if you are at that level of chewing.

The Donner party survived, so I guess the answer is yes.

I was thinking the same thing. I was burning calories, while eating them which added calories back, which probably caused my body to want to replace those skin cells faster, which was burning more calories. There is obviously some loss there, but I would be curious what the numbers are.

It's a nervous habit, plus I kind of like the pain.

I didn't know if you had to get into the meat to get to the calories or not.

Ok for some weird reason, I clicked and then laughed at most of the posts.

It's not terribly strange, I suppose. My left hand has some nasty calouses from playing the guitar. Once in a while, a hard piece of skin will creep up and get in the way while playing, so I'll trim it back with my teeth. I do spit it back out, however.

It certainly doesn't hurt.

Thats dead skin. No nerve endings. Has nothing to do with the caloric content of the skin itself.
Link Posted: 8/24/2005 8:35:34 AM EDT
Everything that you are has caloric value. Dead skin probably doesnt have much but I am sure it will burn and if it does we can measure how much is in there.

I forwarded a link to this thread to my wife and asked her if her board ever posted weird threads like this. She said no. But then we have about 10 x the number of posters as she does on hers.

You coould add a booger for some flavor. Not sure about the caloric value, are you dieting?

Of course, human skin provides sustenance to millions of creatures

called dust mites.

I am trying to lose weight. That is why I thought it might be a good idea to cut back.

Some information to assist you in your weight loss goals:

"Humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour - about 1.5 pounds a year. By 70 years of age, an average person will have lost 105 pounds of skin." That's a lot of particles...400,000 particles per lb.
Humans shed and re-grow outer skin cells about every 27 days - almost 1,000 new skins in a lifetime. So, if you can eat more than you re-grown....WEIGTH LOSS

The largest human organ is the skin, with a surface area of about 25 square feet. A virtual calories burning machine.
Finally, and slightly off topic:

The average person releases nearly a pint of intestinal gas by flatulence every day. Most is due to swallowed air. The rest is from fermentation of undigested food. (and in your case, SKIN)

Hope this helps.

Autocannibalistic tendencies, eh ??

Good thing you cant reach too many 'other parts' of you to start chewing on..
