When I was little, I used to believe than my ribs were minced beef that got reconstitued in my body after having eaten it, that's why every times I ate minced beef I touched my ribs to see if they were reconstitued because there were lines llike on mince meat.
Until the day, I learnt in class It was just bones, I felt so silly!
I used to think having an eating disorder meant canceling your food order in a restaurant, before knowing about anorexia and bulimia.
I used to think that you could make wine of any
Colour, like blues or purples, because grapes come
In so many different colours besides the usual red.
I used to think that being anorexic was most common in Asian people, because of religious stuff like fasting and being vegetarian.
I used to believe that women get pregnant because they eat a lot of meat
When i was a child like in kinder garden i used to believe the girls didn't eat like never and i know is very weird but when i was in the break of my school all the boys buy food or eat something but the girls didn´t do that they always play with their toys or play with other girls.
And other thing i used to believe is every country of the world has the same time like in Ecuador we were in the morning so Spain too or United States too.
When I first heard the expression "going right to your thighs", I thought that meant that instead of cellulite, there'd be chewed-up food that didn't even go into your stomach or intestines stuffed between your skin and your muscles. Even to this day, I'm still grossed out by the expression.
Apart from Hindu vegetarians and underfed people in poverty, I used to think all skinny people were anorexic, even when they ate normally like everyone else.
I used to think that having an eating disorder or dietary condition sort of depended on where people lived or originated from, because it would sound strange to say (probably as a teenager) that your parents were Italian, but your diet was free of pizza and pasta, or any other food associated with a certain culture!
I used to believe that if I ate candies in the morning my stomach was going to explode
I used to eat a lots of spinach when I was kid in the hope of becoming stronger because I thought all iron from spinach would go into my muscles, and that was what transformed them into tough muscles...
I no longer think this. But I keep eating spinach however it's not this that is going to help me to get a model body !!
When I almost choked to death one time and when I vomited, I thought people had two holes inside their necks; one for food and one for ‘water’. If you eat too fast and the food goes in the ‘water’ hole, you choke. If you drink too fast and the ‘water’ goes in the food hole, you vomit.
I used to think that if I ate spinach I would have a lot of strength (Popeye)
I used to believe that if I ate a lot of junk food in a week, I'd get so fat that my belly would be too big for my clothes and I'd have to roll around!
When I was 4 -5 years I used to believe that if I drank milk I'll become a cow.
I used to think that I could eat a lot of food at Thanksgiving, but my stomach size would show my limit. I thought that if I got too full, my belly would reach the table and my belly button would pop out!
When I was a little girl, I used to believe that if I swallowed an apple seed, an apple tree would grow in my belly!!!
When I was about 6 I was told you can't go swimming after eating a meal because you'll get a cramp and drown. This didn't scare me. Instead I wondered how anyone could drown when all they had to do was just keep swallowing the water until they could stand again.
When I was about 11 I told my 9 year old step sister at the time that if she ate enough otter pop Popsicles that her vocal chords would freeze and shed lose her voice and not have to go to school the next day. My sister then proceeded to eat a good 15-20 before my mom found out what I had said.
I believed that your stomach must be empty before you go to sleep.
