Weird question

Is there any food that you eat in an abnormal way? For example Kit Kats, I eat the chocolate from around the outside then peel off the layers. I peel the layers of Nutty Bars to. Reese's peanut butter cups, I eat the chocolate from all around then eat the peanut butter. Hohos I eat the chocolate coating then unroll it and eat the rest. Baby carrots, I eat around the core almost like on a corn cob, then I eat the sweeter core last.

What odd ways do you eat any food.

I'm absolutely no doctor here, but reading around forums and stuff I've heard people say it can be related to ADD as a food texture problem. Also have heard of it being a sensory problem, which is why I asked. Her feelings on food seem pretty extreme. Sensory is what came to my mind after reading all that.......

Hmmm....... Did she start eating like that after the car accident, or before?

Does she have a disability? Usually thats a sign?

my best friend.

There is a stack of plates in the cabinet. On the bottom, grownup plates. Fullsize, glass..ceramic, plates. Above that...is a stack of toddler plates. You know, the small ones, always plastic, usually they have a few dividers in them. Above that...is a stack of grownup sized plastic plates...with dividers. Those are for my best friend.

She can't stand for her food to touch. What little she WILL eat..can NOT touch each other. She loves blackeyed peas...and she will eat corn. If they touch...she will draw a line and eat up to the touching stuff. There will be a little wall of food left...blackeyed peas down the left side, corn down the right side.

She loves chicken livers (oddly) and she loves Fried Chicken. I made fried chicken for the guys...who don't eat livers and I made a bucket of livers for the two of us. As they finished...I let them rest on the plate...with the fried chicken. She wouldn't eat any that touched the fried chicken. She actually MENTIONED it! They touched the same GREASE...but once they are on the plate...it's different. I'm not sure how...all I was told is, "that's different."

She eats french fries like a squirrel..taking tiny bites. Nobody can get full like THAT! Drives me nuts! Sometimes I shove four in my mouth at once...just to see her cringe. She eats pretzel sticks the same way.

Ketchup is too hot. It makes her sweat..as if it were hot sauce. She's not just SAYING that..I can SEE her skin shine! She's actually GLOWING!

She's also just as picky about meat...bones and fat. It's a waste to feed her a porkchop, she's going to cut a one inch circle out of the center of it..and she's done. I've watched her cut up and throw away an entire ribeye...she couldn't find a bite worth eating.

On a cruise, years ago, we ordered cheesecake covered in strawberries. She started dissecting her plate immediately. She asked for a second plate. She picked the prettiest strawberries off the top of the cake..and set them in a pile on her clean saucer. Then she turned the cheesecake on it's side, cut off every SHRED of strawberry juice..and transferred her dry clean cheesecake to a pile on the OTHER side of her new saucer. THEN she ate the cheesecake...dry....and after every BITE was gone..she ate the strawberries...one after the other.

Usually you'll find her in the kitchen an hour after dinner, boiling spaghetti noodles. It's okay for parmesan cheese to touch noodles.

LOL I haven't said anything behind her back here...we pick at her about this CONSTANTLY. I love to stand over our cart in the grocery store and start "freaking out" because the cans are touching the boxes.

Wow, Elizabeth, those are pretty strange.

The only food I may eat, weird, are ice cream sandwiches. I hate for the icecream to squish out onto my hands, so I lick all around the ice cream sandwhich until the icecream is indented about 1 inch, then I will eat the sandwich like "normal".

Back when I still ate at McDonalds, I would peel the breading off my nuggets, eat the breading, then eat the rest.

I'm glad others are willing to admit eating their food weird.

I remembered another food, waffles. I want them square with an even number of squares on both sides. I have to have a little butter in every square and a little syrup in every square. (homemade brown sugar syrup) Then I eat the waffle in 2 square by 2 square bites. If there is an odd number, I eat the last strip with my fingers. In my defense, I rarely ate waffles when I was a kid unless I was with my great-grandpa and he gave me a lesson on eating waffles every time. I think that he just wanted someone else to be as weird as him.

Yup, I eat the cereal first and then the marshmallows, too!



When I was a kid I would just eat the marshmallows. ;)

My mom refused to buy it for me after that. So I didn't really get marshmallow cereal again until I was a teenager.



My mom also turned into a major health nut. Especially when it came to cereal. We had a limit on how much sugar was allowed in our cereal. So our pantry consisted of plain cheerios and shreddies, muslix and frosted mini wheats. :P

I do that same thing with kit kkats and nutty bars!!1 And with PB M&M's i eat the coating, then the chocolate then the PB. I eat the choc of a swiss cake roll then lick the cream off then eat the cake part. If I eat toast i split the piece in 4 and eat all the soft part firs then eat the crust. I eat my pizza backwards. in cereal with marshmallows i always eat the cereal first and the marshmallows last. I only eat the top part of broccoli. milk has to be iced or ice cold for me to drink it. I STILL don't like my foods to touch. those are the only ones i can think of at the moment. lol

I won't eat any meat still on the bone. My husband has to de-bone and de-vein any meat before he cooks it. I also won't touch raw meat.

Before a few months ago I would honestly never eat 2 different foods in one mouthful. Now I mix things on the fork but my whole life I'd eat carrot by itself, meat by iself, pasta by itself,mince and sauce by itself.

I only eat the top of broccoli too! I eat all the chocolate at nougat off a mars bar and leave the caramel to last. When I am by myself if I eat chips I suck of the seasoning before I eat the chip. When I eat meat I have to remove every single piece of skin, fat and bone before I can eat it (even from mince). I like to break off small pieces of cheese slices and swallow them without chewing them, I don't like the texture of it chewed up. If I have to eat carrots that are cooked I have to swallow them whole without chewing, otherwise they make me vomit. I like to pull my food apart. There are more, but I sound strange enough as it is.....



I am better than I used to be, once upon a time I would never eat at someone else's house because I was too picky, I couldn't eat onion or mushrooms and I would dry reach trying too.



I think it's weird that you don't break the kit kat up too Gillian! But then I can't really talk can I, look at my enormous strange list!

Odd indeed lady! :P :P

I eat ice cream upside down from a spoon.. can't help it. I think I got that quirk from my dad.

Other than that? I don't think so. My boyfriend shovels food down his throat then when eating meat on a bone pecks at it for whatever reason.

My dad bites a sandwhich then makes the whole thing 'even' by taking a few more bites.

Weird indeed.......

Any cholate bar that I can eat the coating off first, I do, then eat the middle. Pizza and pies, I eat the crust first

Yeah... I eat Reese's the same way as you. ;)

What about those Puffs cookies? You know, the kind with the marshmellow and covered in chocolate?
I think everyone eats those weird. You crack the chocolate coating. Eat all the little pieces. Then pull off and eat eat the marshmellow. And last you eat the wafer cookie at the bottom. Tada!

Pickle spears. I scrape off the top (seeded) part with my teeth as I suck the juices. I have been told numerous times that it looks like I'm giving a blow job. I honestly don't mean for it to look that way.
