I eat wayyyyyyy toooo fast. I did not use to eat fast, but rarely have time to eat anything at my job. It is such a hard habit to break.

Used to be a very fast eater. My husband is even faster than I am. When we were young, we'd actually sit down to a special dinner (be it home-prepared or at a special restaurant) and tell each other to s-l-o-w d-o-w-m. Hubby says it is the military background. Nowadays (many many moons after the military) I actually find myself with a pile of food on my plate when we're at a restaurant when everyone else is through ... usually because I've been busy sipping and conversing with friends. Much different lifestyle.

I'm a fast eater, mainly due to my job. I work the nightshift in the ER of our Hospital, and it's hard to eat slow when you never know when the next trauma patient is going to come in. So on my days off when I'm visiting my sister I try to slow down when we go out to eat, but invariably I'm done way before she gets well and truly started. I'll take a bite set down my fork and chew slowly (or at least attempt to chew slowly), but I always finish way ahead of her.
Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.

I'm a slow eater, I like to enjoy the taste and texture of my food.
