When I was about 5, I heard the term, "You Are What You Eat" for the first time. I wouldnt eat any vegtibles, fruits or beef for a week.

I used to think that people could only eat so much before the food would come back out of their mouth's, and that this was the reason that people were overweight, the food had come out and they shoved it back down and made their stomach bigger making them look fatter.

When I was very little, of course, I didn't know much about the inside of the human body so in my imagination, I would picture it. I thought that inside of me there were little sacks for all the different kinds of food and little people on platforms held by ropes that could lower up and down. These little people would catch the food as it came down and sort it into their respective sacks. For instance, if you ate a carrot it would go into the carrot sack. I guess the thought of all that food going down and being mushed together was just too gross a thought to fathom. Little men & little sacks - much more appealing indeed!

When I was little I use to believe there were drawers in my stomach so whatever I ate had its own draw that would open and catch it

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.

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.

I always believed as a child your stomach was a big hand which squeezed your food out through your bum....

When I was very young I thought that as you eat, the food filled your hollow body and stretched it, and that's how people grow.

When I was 4, I thought the expression "eat it up" didn't make sense, because when you eat, the food goes DOWN into your stomach, not UP into your head.

I used to think that you had two seperate throats, one for food, the other for drinks.

Soup confused me as it's sort of both.

I used to quite seriously believe that I had 2 stomachs. One for dinners and one for puddings. The dinner one was far smaller than the other! I remember having quite a serious argument with my mother that my dinner tummy was full but the pudding tummy was completely empty and, in fact, still hungry

When I was a little kid, about 4 or 5, I found out that birds ate gravel for their digestion, so I figured eating tiny pebbles was good for me, too...until I learned people didn't have gizzards (and what gizzards did).

I used to believe that when i ate any kind of food each ingredient would separate in my stomach and fill up its own special column. I used this reasoning to explain why i couldn't finish my dinner but i had room for dessert...the ice-cream column wasn't full yet!

WHEN I WAS LITTLE, I USED TO BELIEVE THAT MY BODY WAS HOLLOW AND WHEN I ATE MY FOOD WOULD FILL UP MY WHOLE BODY, IT DIDN'T HELP THAT WHEN I WOULDN'T EAT ANYMORE, MY DAD TOLD ME TO SHAKE A LEG SO I COULD MAKE MORE ROOM.

My dad always told me when I was five that if I sang while I was eating, I would eventually marry a cross-eyed person. When I saw one walking one day I approached her and said "Are you gonna marry me?" She was puzzled and just walked away.

My dad always told me that food gave me energy, so I always thought that when you ate, it went into your stomach, which was a giant tub that was being stirred up like what you see in the factories on TV. When the factory was done with the process, it would've made energy.

I used to think that when you ate food it would reconnect in ur stomach and dance around. And I'd imagine like hamburgers and corn on the cob dancing in my stomach.

I thought the human body was essentially hollow and when you ate, the food went all the way down to your feet and started taking up space. When it got all the way up to your neck, then you'd throw up.
