>Meal gets served with Salad
>Have to finish the salad before I touch anything else on the plate
Post your weird eating habits if you have any.
I always get my plate last if I cooked. Taking the first dish after cooking seems selfish to me.
Using the fork in the dominate hand makes perfect sense. It's the most used utensil, especially if there are sauces involved or long pasta.
>go and get a burger with a friend
>he always either eats all the chips and then the burger or eats the burger then all the chips.
For some reason this irritates me, I always eat both together.
I always eat all the chocolate off of a kitkat first before eating the wafers. Start off on the ends where the chocolate is thickest, then the sides, then the top layer. Then I eat the wafers one by one.
>tfw eat my food really fast
>Always finish food when other people are eating with are 40% done
>Have to sit there doing nothing while watching the others eat for another 10 minutes
>People keep asking me why I eat fast and that "you won't enjoy your food"
NIGGA I ENJOY MY FOOD BY EATING IT FAST OTHERWISE I WOULDN'T DO THAT. DON'T TELL ME HOW TO ENJOY MY FOOD.
I used to collect the toppings and put them all on the last slice, so my last slice was always huge and super delicious.
I also always eat my pizza starting from the outside and work my way to the middle so the crust is gone first.
If I get a salad before my meal(or any kind of bread) I'll hit that first. For the main dish I eat my meat first, then the secondary side, then the primary side. Meat, Peas, Potatoes. I think it is because I see the meal as each item with a price tag or even a numbered value. That way if I can't finish it all, it'll be half way through the potatoes, instead of halfway through the meat. Meat is what your body needs, potatoes is what your body can eat. Also I only drink before and after eating, hardly ever between.
>when I ate anything with fries
>HAD to finish fries first completely
>did this because dad always said "it's easier to take the burger or whatever I got home than the fries cause fries became gross when you tried to take them home"
>was always full on fries by the time I would eat the main part
Always portion out my bites so I get a little bit of everything in each bite. For example if im have steak, mashed potatos and brocolli, each little piece of steak I cut will also get some potatos and brocolli with it.
If I'm getting full I'll finish only the meat part of the meal and leave the rest. A habit from when I was young and was told to finish the meat bits if I couldn't finish a meal because meat is expensive.
I do something like this
I sort the food on the plate in order of 'colour' with the most colourful food first, and whenever I finish an item I dim the light on my TV and on my dimmer bulb in the bedroom. I pretend I am 'eating the light' because I am obese and this helps me gradually feel more full and less hungry. My daily treat is a big bag of skittles (174g bag) and as I eat them I throw stones at my light bulb and when it smashes, the 'light' has been eaten and I put the skittles down to stop myself binging.
So you wipe your mouth and throw your disgusting napkin back on the table for everyone to have to look at?
How the fuck can you possibly can anyone else an animal? That's disgusting.
This is a good habit. The salad fills you so you eat less of the heavier foods. And it's better for digestion since salad decomposes faster than meat, so it wont give you bad smelling shits.
I like to suck on fish bones
I put mac and cheese on top of my mashed potatoes if they're ever served together and if there is gravy i will then add it to the top of the mac.
I pull apart buffalo wings and add to pizza, then i like covering it in ranch to eat.
I dip ice cream in hot sauce. I like vanilla hagen daaz with cholula.
I boil chorizo or else i cant eat it
>count chews on each side of my mouth, must be even before i can swallow
>can't switch between meal components without drinking water
>can't eat if i can't see the kitchen/ where it was made (makes eating out a nightmare)
>can't eat by an open window or not being able to see the door/way out of the room/area
>can't eat until i've washed my hands
>can't eat standing up
i have ocd and im recovering from an eating disorder but i'm getting better
i have a few restaurants i trust and im capable of eating with people around who might be watching me now
>Porkchops, dips in applesauce and ketchup.
>Tuna Helper with peas mixed in it
>I bite directly into ice cream and frozen things, (Is that weird? I'm not sure, I've had friends tell me it was weird before)
>(Is that weird? I'm not sure, I've had friends tell me it was weird before)
I've been told that as well. I think it's mostly just people who have teeth that are sensitive to cold that find it weird.
the only weird thing i do, besides being a somewhat picky eater, is maybe put side sauces with things that shouldnt go with sauce, like fries and my meats horseradish sauce.
i also need to cut my pancakes up into still stacked squares before i eat. i cant just cut a piece and eat, i need those bite size pieces ready.
I eat a lot of meals in cheap cafes near my uni. They're good and homemade but the ingredients are not the best to keep costs down. That said, salad for me its one of those things that its either good/ in season or its absolutely foul
When I'm alone, I always eat steak with no utensils...i hold it with my hands and just rip at it with my teeth and when I'm finished I lick my hands clean
Contrary to popular belief i'm really thin, its the worst when people acuse you of not enjoying your food. Do they honestly believe that I never tried eating slowly. I did and like it better this way
It's not that you're not enjoying it at all, it's that you're not enjoying every part of it. You might like the feeling of eating and swallowing large portions of food, but you're only tasting each lump briefly. You can swallow whole pieces and miss out on all of the flavour within, whereas someone who eats slowly and chews thoroughly gets twice the taste experience.
Do it with cheap fast food, whatever, everyone likes to gorge occasionally. But as an extreme example it's a bit like swallowing ravioli whole. People would be well justified in telling you you're not fully enjoying the ravioli.
I can't sit with my back to other people in a restaurant or in public and if I can't sit down with my back against a wall or other such surface were people can't come from behind me I won't eat at the restaurant. I've tried forcing myself to do it but I end up with extreme paranoia and anxiety and end up sitting there a sweating, twitching, nervous wreck until it gets to much and I near enough snap.
The odd thing is I don't really have any anxiety issues or unjustified paranoia in other parts of my life.
now that i am an adult i only ever cook things together if they can be mixed together.
for instance i will not serve potatos with my pork and rice cuz they dont mix on my tongue.
my favorite thing to do is mix like fried chicken, mashed potatos, and corn, and just enjoy that.
That's the proper way to use a knife and fork.
In the States you're supposed to switch the fork back to the right hand before taking a bite, but that's not really followed anymore (unlike putting your napkin in your lap where it belongs).
>>can't eat if i can't see the kitchen/ where it was made (makes eating out a nightmare)
>>not being able to see the door/way out of the room/area
Same, but thats more general paranoia on my part. Always back against the wall facing the door.
>>can't eat until i've washed my hands
Same, but i don't think that is weird at all.
I used to not be able to eat anything i did not cook myself, and i still don't like having other people touch my food if it can be avoided.
>Also I eat with my fork in the right hand and knife in the left
I eat with my fork in my right hand, but whenever I need to cut something I put my fork into my left hand and the knife in my right.
>In the States you're supposed to switch the fork back to the right hand before taking a bite
I always hear this but I've never heard of anyone over the age of 3 doing it who isn't also actually retarded.
When I get burger, I always eat the burger before eating any chips or sipping my drink
I don't really know how to explain this, so excuse me if it turns out to be a word salad. I eat in proportions. Basically, the idea is that every component on the plate is eaten at the same time so that no food item will be left unpaired be the time I'm almost done. It makes me feel very self conscious whenever I eat with other people.
I do this to a small degree, although there are some things I don't mind being left at the end. I think I'm also one of the few people who eats my favourite part first instead of last. I'll enjoy it more if I'm hungry, and if I have to leave anything because I'm full, I can leave the bit I like least.
When I was a kid, I'd eat one thing at a time on my plate, saving whatever I liked most for last. I did that with m&ms and skittles, too, working from one color to next, in order of appeal.
I don't do that anymore as an adult, but that OCD has manifested itself in worse ways now.
I thought it was normal, but I save "the best for last". If my meal has 4 things, I eat them in order of what I like least to best. Usually I'm too full by the time I get up to the piece of meat, and I get to save it for later.
At some kind of restaraunt, usually I fill up on the free bread, my soup and my salad then can't touch my steak and potatoes.
if my Mom doesn't make my mac and cheese just like it says on the box, I won't eat it
god I hate fucking picky eaters and ADD and OCD eaters
what, did your parents drink?
>what, did your parents drink?
why yes they did though my Dad would not touch his drink unless it had exactly 3 ice cubes of the same shape and it was in his favorite glass and my Mom had to stand at attention while he took his first sip and then smack his lips and say, ooh la la, not that's Scottish!
Then my Mother would chug out of the gin bottle, exactly 2 chugs, then stop and twirl and recite the Pledge of Allegiance whilst tapping her left foot exactly 7 times.
>same thing about the salad
>have to eat after doing everything I don't want to do -working out, job, homework, cleaning- no matter how hungry I am
>have to eat in front of the computer watching preferably a 24 minute comedy like archer, bojack, always sunny
>feel guilty if I don't weight every item
>track everything in mfp before eating
>fill myself up with water before a meal
>Like normal people do?
haven't you figured out where you are yet, son?
no because i eat my salad during the meal, ive never understood how people can only eat one thing at a time. like my ex flatmate would just all the sausages then eat the potato then the beans, it drove me nuts
I like to save the best morsel of the meal for last. This is usually just a good bite of steak or perhaps the last bit of seafood. I think a part of me does this to end the meal on a high note?
It pissed my ex off everytime. I eventually reached a point of not caring and doing it on purpose just to make him rage. I was more fascinated with his reaction, than the actual act.
Sausage, potato, and beans is one dish though (sort of). Salad is an entirely different course, aside from being a cold dish.
The only time I've even seen a server ask if you want your salad with the meal is if nobody else at the table ordered an appetizer.
I guess its all just college kids eating cafeteria food itt?
>eating thai style fried chicken
>almost done eating, only chicken and half a cup of soup left
>have to decide whether I finish with soup or chicken
I do this
>eat shitty salad
>enjoy steak, mostly egg white, and fries with bread.
>finish that last piece of steak that's juicy, thick and next to the bone, with perfectly cooked yolk, beautifully golden fry, and a bite of soft bread with just enough crust.
Nobody actually does that
I've tried and it's awkward holding your fork with your right hand and knife in the left
I still do that with M&Ms/Skittles, and I'm still trying to break my lifelong habit of sorting trail mix, granola.... basically anything that's supposed to be eaten together. It's such a stupid, trivial thing, but I couldn't deal with just eating it all mixed up.
I've worked my way up to two things together at the age of 26.
I eat things one at a time. I always save the main dish for last and eat fast so it doesn't get too cold.
I pour hot chocolate power into a cup then cold milk and then eat it with a spoon. Haven't done this since I was a child though. Might do it again.
If I'm being a fat fuck, and eating ice cream out of the container, I can't scoop it. I always start "shaving" it off the top, and when the sides are melting do it there to get the creamy deliciousness.
Yes yes yes! Let us dirty the napkin and throw it back onto the table with all the food and for every one to look at! Because I don't realize even though I folded it and put it on the table, there are people staring because they know it's dirty as fuck and have the ETIQUETTE to not say anything at the time! But you all are the animals! Not me! I was trained right proper! - Farva, Super troopers
In poorer times when we'd order something at a fast food joint we'd always focus on the fries first.
There was a logical system behind that.
The burger is the good stuff. The fries are the shitty filler.
If you eat the burger first you might end up feeling sated before you finish the fries which would leave some food behind.
Now if you eat the fries first you will still finish the burger, because the burger is the good stuff you paid most for.
Can anybody relate? Or at least understand the reasoning behind it?
When i was a kid, I always had to eat the burger before i could eat the fries. My parents argued that the burger was the more proper meal, so if i eat myself full on something, it better be the burger, and i could eat the fries afterward if i was still hungry.
Still can't touch the fries before the burger is finished. Feels good man.
i do this with certain things
typically when i cook for myself i make one dish that's eaten at once, like shaved steak over cheese grits, a hamburger, mexican burritos, fried chicken.
i used to have to lay everything on my plate very symmetrical or organized and cut everything into a multiple of 4 before putting it on the plate, and then eat exactly 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, or all of it
lol yes please
