I can eat slow if I'm in the mood, and I can also eat REALLY REALLY FAST. I can't eat much though, compared to my peers. I get hungry a lot more than they do, but when I get to the food I wolf it down and I can never finish anything. x_x

I just wolf food down, which isn't always a good thing because I just guesstimate how much food I need and then go at it. Thus, my weight fluctuates to starting to not need a belt, to OMG eat a sandwich syndrome. I went from 140 to 160 to 138 lbs in the span of four months. It's all in my medical record at the clinic
I love food, but am a pretty slow eater. I don't drink a lot between meals, but I need plenty to drink with meals because I have a hard time choking the food down if I get thirsty.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Oh mang, when I read the thread title I thought folks were discussing taking methemphetamines and other drugs like Fen/Phen to lose weight!!!
I cook slow and eat fast. I wish I ate slower so I could enjoy my food, but I think I enjoy it too much to slow down. And I feel like I could be doing so much other stuff instead of eating -- like wasting time. I talk a lot as well while eating, so if I'm with friends, it takes forever for me to eat so I accept the fact I may leave hungry!
When I'm serious about eating, I shut up and focus entirely on the meal. I barely follow conversations around me. My aunt said when I eat at family functions it's the only time I get very quiet and ladylike. LOL.

I don't see eating as social-time. It is fuel-up time. No sooner do I get my plate before I clean it. All of it. Leaving excess food on my plate would indicate poor prior planning (punishable by death?...for me at least). I could sum up my eating habits in one word: efficient.
I wolf food down. I also enjoy eating. So I end up eating a lot. Good thing I generally hit the right balance between amount of food consumed and amount of exercise done. Every now and then when I'm eating something particularly good I try to slow down and savour it but as soon as I stop concentrating on that (i.e. within a minute) I eat quickly again.
I'm a moderate to fast eater. I hate it when people try to talk to me while I'm eating. There's plenty of time before and after the actual chewing "zone". When I'm eating, I'm eating... don't be all asking me about stuff.
