when I was a little girl I was always told that if you eat standing up the food would go to your feet and you'd be a skinny child. my family always said that. I think alot of people in Puerto Rico say that.

I used to belive that every time you ate, all that food would go straight to your feet until it reached up tp my neck and then we throw it up. And when ever i ate i looked at my foot, just to see if they got fatter. I believed this until i was 10. . . . 10! I then realized that the food goes to my stomach. I was so a creepi kid then. . . . . .

I had to eat to feed the creature inside my belly. If I didn't eat enough or went too long without getting food then he would get mad and start growling and punching my insides. The only way to make him happy was to eat until I felt stuffed.

I used to believe that there were seperate 'channels' for food and drink. When I grew up I realised that was a bit weird, until I discovered my dad used to believe you had a separate channel for every different kind of food...

When I was about 4, I used to love watching myself in a small mirror while I was eating. Untill my aunt told me that if you do that, you would actually eat your brains. I was scared to death for about a year, until i said "what the hey?" and took the risk. I still hate my aunt.

When my sister was little, she would never like to eat so everytime she refused to eat, my mom and i would say "if you don't eat you'll turn invisable! Oh my goodness your turning invisible!!! hurry and eat!!!" She would run and eat every time.

GET 'EM OUT !! i jumped because i thought that way they won't eat me from inside. never put anything beside food in my mouth since.

i used to believe that you needed a certain amount of saliva to eat stuff. like you know how you swallow every few seconds automatically? i thought i was wasting spit that i needed to eat... so i would try not to swallow at all so that i would have enough saliva for my lunch! cos i never saw other people swallowing when i did

When I was little, I used to think that certain foods "lived" in certain spots of my body. So I would talk to my mom and say(as i pointed to my hand, for example) and this is where all the bananas i eat go...

when I was 3 I use to belive when you drank somthing it would go to your right leg, and when you ate somthing it would go to your left leg. But I never thought about how it came out?

When I was little I used to chew all food using only one side of my mouth at a time because I thought if I used both sides I would choke when I swallowed the food.

Once, my mom said that if you would eat like a little tiny peice of paper, a book would grow inside of you. I have believed that for a very long time... but not anymore.

my mum told me that when you choked it was because your food had gone down the drink hole. You also have an air hole too! I was very embarrassed when my firends corrected me !

when I was little my mother dieted a lot and I heared a lot about how bad it was to eat between meals. I thought that some people ate half a meal, snacked on something else, then finished the rest of the meal.

I used to believe that my stomach was like a big food market with shelves filled with food i had eaten and my organs would go there to buy them and my heart was the shopkeeper and sat behind the counter and had an old matress bump under her feet(yes, she was female and had feet.) so she could bump blood. i was sure i had isles full on icecream and starberries and i envied my organs cause they could eat them all of the time.

When I was little, mydad told me 'you are what you eat'. I thought that this meant that eventually, you would turn into the kind of food you eat, and htis was why we ate something different every night for dinner. I guess I thought it would slow the transformation. I also thought that if you were to eat a lot of one thing, then it would quicken the process, and I always wondered why vegetarians weren't all walking vegetables.

When I was like 5 or 6 I used to believe that your tastebuds were like these tiny tiny tiny little buttons/lights in your mouth. Then whenever you would eat say for example, something sweet, then your "sweet" tastebud would flash a small green light which was supposed to let your brain know that the thing you are eating is sweet.
