When I was little, I thought that when you ate something, it re-formed in your stomach into what it looked like in the first place. Like, if you ate an apple, you would end up with a whole apple in your stomach.

When my brother and I were little, my mom told us that we had to sit up straight when eating at the table, because otherwise the little men in our stomachs would be squished and therefore unable to move the food around...We believed her for many years. I also believed there was a separate little compartment in my stomach just for desserts, and therefore always had room for dessert.

As a very young kid (three or four), I liked putting marbles in my mouth (something about the smoothness) and my mom would always get upset when I did. As expected, I eventually swallowed one on accident. Frantic that my mom would somehow know, I figured out how to remove it. All I needed to do was stand on my head! Brilliant! Five-minutes later, with a face red from blood rushing to my head, I just gave up and told my mom what had happened. She got upset, but then she taught me about the esophagus and told me I would just poop the marble out.

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.

Now they do say that you are what you eat. I remember eating 6 banana's in a row because I really thought it was cool to look like a banana. Then I threw up and my mum hit me and told me not so stupid.

After accidentally buying chunky peanut butter, my 3-year-old son after taking a bite of his sandwich said, "Mom, this peanut butter still has the bones in it."

When I was little, I would sometimes want to take food into the bathroom or I would still be chewing my food when I went to the bathroom. My mom always said not to take food into the bathroom because if I did I was feeding the devil. It wasn't until I was in my early 20's until I could allow myself to chew food while in the bathroom.

I used to think that when you ate food and swalloed it, while it was rolling down a long tube inside you, it would form into a round ball and join all the other round balls inside your stomach until you pooped them out.

I used to believe a man lived in my stomach with a blender. and he would put all the food I ate into the blender. if i threw up it was because he spilt the blender. i would get really mad at him sometimes.

My older brother once explained to me how he thought digestion works. He said that there are little men in our stomachs and when we eat, the men pack up the food in boxes. They stack the boxes really high, and then when the stack reaches our mouths, we burp, and the stack disappears. So the men would start another stack of boxes.

Not only that, but my brother would wiggle his fingers on his tummy, sort of in a tickling motion, to make the men work faster.

He could believe whatever he wanted, but he couldn't convince me!

I used to think that I had to be very careful and eat on each side of my mouth equally or my teeth would grow to be lop-sided.

I used to believe when i was eating food that it was a family. MUMS AND DADS AND KIDS. ALL the different food types on my plate being different members of the family!!! If i did not eat it all I would split the family up and they would be devestated. However IF i ate all the food then they got to go on a trip into my body ( which to them was a theme park with rides etc) My Throat being a slide and other various attractions were my tummy which was s ticky wall they spun around in. I always felt so guilty if I didnt eat ALL my meals. I watched the remainders being binned and wondered if the family were mad at me !!!!!!!!!!!

I used to believe if you ate something greasy & then drank a cold drink, the grease in your stomach would become a solid mass. WHY? Because my Mom used to pour her grease from cooking into old soup cans, put it in the fridge & it would be solid!! Made perfect sense to me!!

When I was little I didnt know anything about the digestive system so I thought when you ate food it would all just fill up from your feet to your head.

I thought that when you threw up it meant that the food was filled up past your head.

I thought that fat people were just people that use to be skinny but they ate so much that they filled up to their heads abnd just expanded.

When I was young, I had a huge appetite, and my grandmother would tell me that I had a hollow leg, so I'd knock on my legs to see if they sounded differently... it still makes me laugh 35yrs. later!

When i was younger, my mom always told me to finish my veggies and said, "You'd better keep eating or else it'll get cold." this made me thik that every time you took a bite, your food would magically re-heat!
