When I was little, I thought that a giant gummy bear lived in my tummy, and when he got hungry, he would growl (normal tummy noises). And that is when I felt like I had to eat because the bear needed food.

I used to believe that if I ate candy I would shrink because that is what my brother and sister said. They said I started out the same size as them but because I ate candy I had shrunk. Eventually I gave them all my Easter Candy that year.

Up until age 8 or 9, I thought there was a big gear in my tummy that would grind up the food I ate. When my tummy grumbled from hunger, I thought it was because the gear needed food to lube it up. When I was full, I thought it was because too much food would prevent the gear from turning. Once the gear ground up more of my food, then I could eat some more.

i use to believe that when we ate all the food just went to our feet and we would fill up with food and when we threw up that was the way we got rid of it... never occured to me why i was always going to the loo....

I used to think that there was a counter (like the odometer in a car) in my brain that counted the number of time I chewed my food before swallowing.

When I was little I used to believe that when you ate food, it all built up inside. I didn't know about organs so I just thought it all kept piling up. I remember sometimes I would try to think about what level I thought the food was at. I guess I never thought about what happened when you were all filled up!

top belief!

As a child, I used to think you could quench your thirst by repetitively building up spit in your mouth and swallowing it.

when my brother was really little, he somehow learned that cows had more than one stomache, so he naturally assumed that he did too. one night at dinner he informed my mother that he couldn't ea the rest of his dinner cuz he was full. at desert my mother brought this up, and he replied with 'my dinner stomache was full, but my dessert stomach is still emty! he said this like it was the most obvious thing in the world!

when i was little, i used to think i was the loudest chewer ever. i thought this because when you chew somthing it's in your head, and close to your ears and it seems loud, but i didn't know that nobody else heard it like that. i used to get embarrassed when i ate somthing crunchy because i thought i was annoying people, so i would try to chew really quietly. i was jelous of my sister,because she could chew quietly, and i wanted to learn how to do that.

As a child, somehow I got into my brain that if I swallowed the food whole, that I would get all the nutrients I need, because chewing took all the nutrients out.
So for about a month I swallowed beans whole and kernels of corn and such, until my mother told me it was all bloody stupid and I dropped it.

When i was about 6, i used to think that the food you had eaten kept building up inside your body, right up your throat and eventually out your mouth! I thought that was why you were sick! (I didn't understand the digestive system at the time!) So when my mum said, 'don't eat a lot or you'll be sick' i thought that the food piling up was the only explanation! teehee x

Up until iw as about 8 i didnt eat well. I really diddnt eat lots of veggies and meat and stuff. So when My mom told me to eat more healthy stuff, i told her that my veggie compartment was full and i still needed to fill my sweets compartment. Even now when we have something i dont really like i use that excuse. Mymom gets a kick every time!

I always used to think that there was a man inside your stomach and he would cry when you were hungry and sort out your food, I also thought that another man (that looked the same) turned the fridge light off when you closed it!

I genuinely used to believe that your lungs were for your food and drink (one each) - this seemed much more sensible to me than Grandad telling me that when I was particularly hungry I must have hollow legs! Surely food couldn't go down there...

When I was about 9 I thought that I would have to alternate my chewing so that I wouldn't get a cavity. So after I chewed a bite with my left teeth the next bite would have to be chewed up with the teeth on the right side. I'm 10 now and I know better.

I used to believe that the stomach was made of all these tubes, a different tube for a different kind of food. A cake tube, a pasta tube, a brownie tube. Things like these. Then, my sister put me in my place. :(

For so many years, I believed that when your stomach grumbled it was your stomach digesting itself...this courtesy of my dear old dad. I must have been a teenager when I finally figured out that the noise isn't digestion!
