I used to believe that my digestive tract consisted of a log assembly line and that there were tiny factory workers, with hair nets and smocks, carefully pulling out the nutrients from my food. What had no value to my body was the waste... and that is how food became poop.
I used to belive when i was 5 years younger, age 6 that if i didn't eat my vegetables i wouold get eaten up by them.
Mum used to tell me not to drink whild having food in my mouth, so i thaugt that we have one pipe for liquids and one for food, and that you could swallow the food/ liquid into the wrong pipe. I realized when I was 15 that this was wrong!
I used to belive that when I ate, all the food went into the stomach and stayed there. I thought that it was evil to eat food, I thought that the food, like potatoes, had they're own personallities, could talk and stuff like that. So when I ate another potato, I thought that the other potatoes would have a new friend to play with.xD
When i was about 6 i thought that a little bean lived in my stomach and ate all of the food that i swallowed. and when im stomach growled it meant that the bean was mad or hungry, and when i had a stomach ache i thought the bean was mad at me, and when i threw up i thoght i gave the bean something he didnt like and he was so mad he was giving it back to me. i know. i was wierd.
When I was little, I used to think that you didn't really digest food. You just had a certain amount of room in your stomach, and if you filled it up, it would come out of your mouth.

i used to imagine that 2 ants( or some other kind of bug) lived in my stomach ,and ate all the little bits of food. i have no idea why i thought this.
I used to believe I had a two-headed, purple dragon in my tummy that would growl when it got hungry.
I used to believe that there were little workers inside of my stomach that would separate the food into different compartments as it came down from my mouth/throat. Otherwise, how would it know where to go?
I used to believe that there was a hungry creature inside my belly, and that when it started growling it was demanding to be fed. I thought that if I didn't feed it, it would start to eat me from the inside! I was always afraid that I would be stuck outside playing somewhere and wouldn't be able to make it home in time to feed it when it got hungry.
I used to believe that the food we ate stayed in side of us forever.I didn't know about the whole digestive system thing.I would imagine humans as a pile of food covered with skin.
My earliest memory in sitting in preschool at snack time eating, but taking little bites and chewing quickly because I didn't realize you could breath out of your nose if there was something in your mouth. All the sudden it hit me and I felt like I discovered something amazing.
I used to believe that in your stomach there was a huge cauldron. And when you ate the food went into the cauldron. Whenever you ate too much food, the cauldron would overflow and thats why you would throw up.
I used to believe that your body was hollow, so when you ate, the food went all the way down to your feet and filled up your body from your feet all the way up. When it got to your mouth, you were full.

When i was about 4 i believed that we had two holes in our throat, one for drink and one for food, and when i choked i believed that it went down the wrong hole!
until i was about 7, i thought the human body was hollow inside like the whale in pinnochio & that when you ate food, it would tumble down your ribs & pool at the bottom of your body, where it separated into liquid & solid & came out the appropriate "exit".
when i was a little my sister always told me that if i kept eating french fries that my face would explode
i used to believe that when i ate stuff that there was a party going on in my stomach and that if i didnt eat my food the leftover food would be sad cuz they didnt get to go to the party. when i had a stomach ache, there was too much partying, n when i was hungry (aka: stomach growling n stuff) that ment my stomach was angry at me and was yelling at me to start partying again...tums were the cops if there was too much partying.
