I have been known to be on my third helping before the rest are done with ther first. I got this habit from my time at the Bighouse. We had to eat on the run. However I do like to sit alone in a Restaurant with a book or Newspaper and eat in a liesurely manner. I am getting better at eating and talking at the same time.

I tend to do most things (walk, talk, etc.) very fast, but I am a pretty slow eater. For one thing, I usually like my food so hot it blisters my mouth (I don't know why I am like that), so I can't eat too fast. Also, I like to savor the flavors of what I am eating.

Relaxed! My husband always complains that I take forever to eat lol! If we go out I'm still busy with my starter when he gets to pudding!

Wow--you bumped an old thread! I'm a moderately slow eater. I like to taste (and chew) my food. Even if I'm eating alone.

I do that too! I want my hot food "piping hot" and my cold food "ice cold"
My mom says I've got a stainless steel throat

I wouldn't say I was a fast eater, but I probably eat like I drive. I like to get to where I'm going. I relax after dinner, not during. Unless I'm eating out with someone.

If I'm eating alone, I tend to be doing something else at the same time. Reading, online or watching TV.

If I'm eating with SO, I'll always be the last one to finish.

If I'm eating with a group, I tend to be moderate in pace. Usually not the first or last one done.

If I'm really enjoying a meal, I tend to take smaller bites so it will last longer.

My DH and I are complete opposites. He eats like he's never going to be fed again and I eat like I've got till Christmas to finish lol! My Daughter eats slow and my son eats fast. Guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree ;0)
