I chew my food way too quickly. I practically inhale a plate within 10 seconds of it placed in front of me. I'm not sure when chewing so fast became a habit, but it is one I intend to break.
I remember an episode of "I love Lucy"said you should chew your food 30 plus times before swallowing. Making it to 20 is greatly pushing it for me. Clearly this is why I'm thicker than a snicker. I eat my food so fast until my body doesn't realize it's in there.
I keep saying I'm going to start eating slowly, but as soon as a plate is set in front if me I completely forget. I'm not much better with drinks either be it water and juice or wine and liquor. I slurp a cup down in 10 seconds or less.
