Lmao this cracked me upread op; skipped to end of thread.
you and i can cuddle when go-time hits. i'll have about 12 weeks before i am struck with a crippling headache and %0 combat effective.
i'll lay there in pain double-fisting prescriptions and you will be hiccuping from dinner and we'll take a JDAM or hellfire right up the poop-chute.
That's kind of what I did today, well sort of, I just focused on mashing the food up. Usually I need a drink to wash the food down, as sometimes, it literally gets "stuck" in my chest and thats when I get insanely painful hiccups and it inhibits my breathing. Eating for me is very systematic and surrounded by a timing structure. Chew swallow chew swallow, drink, chew swallow, chew swallow, drink. It's so bizarre. So much so that my coworkers literally just watch in amazement as I inhale food. SucksOK, so the lutefisk idea didn't work for you then?
How about this. Take a bite, and then savor the taste. While you do this, imagine where the food came from, whether it is beef, potato, salad, or whatever. Picture the color of it as it grows through its life stages. Picture how it was harvested or slaughtered. Picture how it was cooked and prepared. Then take another bite.
That, or have a beer.
I'm Bloomdicks worst nightmare, as I can inhale two or three burgers like it's nobodies business.Move to NYC. They're bound to implement strict, legal guidelines on meal duration sooner rather than later. Let the judicial system deal with it. In the end, it's for the children.
I say don't change a thing. Embrace your gluttony. Make peace with the fact that you're a pig.I'm Bloomdicks worst nightmare, as I can inhale two or three burgers like it's nobodies business.
You need to masticate more.Ok so bear with me, this might sound really goofy at first, but it's a really bothersome issue for me. I eat, insanely fast. I'm talking like, holy shit, where did it go fast. Now normally no big deal, but when I eat it causes extreme bouts of hiccups and sometimes, if I'm super rushing, I almost lose my breath. To give you some perspective, I could eat two or three hamburgers, with fries and a drink, in the time it a average person to eat half of one burger. Thing is, it's not like I do it rudely or disgustingly, as most people don't even notice till I sit back and they see my "plate" is empty. And no, I don't weigh 500lbs
I know, I know, you're probably thinking, really dude?, but it's an issue for me. More often than not, when I'm eating with people, and I finish, their eyes explode out of their heads and cannot believe I ate my food that fast, and thats just normal for me, not even rushing. I'm seriously out of ideas as to what to do. No matter how much I try to focus on eating slower, it's almost like I get faster. I need some serious suggestions on how to slow down my eating habits, because its a pain in the ass. I've even contemplated hypnotherapy, yes, it's that bad.
So does anyone else have this issue, or have some tips on how to curb this?
No not particularly, even stuff I need to cut and use a fork for, I manage to inhale. I've slowly been able to start to curb this bad habit though.So, it sounds like you eat a lot of burgers, or other finger foods?
Switch to plated entrees, something that requires a fork and a knife to eat. Cut small bites (pretend you're a toddler, if that's what it takes) and chew. That should at least offset the speed a little.
This but make that drink water. The hiccups are from your esophagus contracting/overworking. Water in-between bites will help that since the food doesn't have enough saliva to make its way down your pie-hole at mack 3 .Drink more.
Variety of different colors, too, so the odds of him finding one that match his spit-mask and hockey helmet are pretty good.Fork vibrates when you eat too quickly:
