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.

i used to think that bodies were empty, that everyone had only skin, and when you ate, your body started filling inside with food, from your toes to your forehead.

Before I understood the digestive system, I thought that there was a separate stomach for food and liquid that would funnel liquid out as pee and solids would go straight to the rear

When I was little, I used to believe that when you ate anything. It would be divided up into certain little compartments in your stomache. Like the liquids would go to the liquids etc. Now I know that is so very not true.

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 think that the human body was hollow. When you ate food, it began to slowly fill your body. When your body got full of food, you got sick and threw up.

I used to believe that the saliva that we were born with would have to last us our whole lives. I was extremely worried that if I ate something that tasted bad that I would end up being a stinky old lady with vile breath one day!

I used to believe that everytime I ate, the food filled me up from toe to head. I would measure stuff like up to my knees.

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 9 I heard my mom say ice cream goes straight to your thighs. I didn't eat ice cream until high school because I was convinced I'd have these huge legs if I did.

I used to think that having an eating disorder or dietary condition sort of depended on where people lived or originated from, because it would sound strange to say (probably as a teenager) that your parents were Italian, but your diet was free of pizza and pasta, or any other food associated with a certain culture!
