Chomp chomp.

Eating can be a real headache sometimes. You stare uneasily at the mound on your plate. Painfully aware of every action, you lift your spoon to your mouth. Insert. REmove empty spoon. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chewchewchewchewchewchew.........Swallow. And so it follows, bite after seemingly unending bite, and yet the food on your plate doesn't seem to be getting much less, and you're very aware of how horrendously slowly you're eating.
Ah, the tragedies of being a frequently distracted slow eater. Must buckup.

Other times, however, you don't even realise you're eating, either you're immersed in something else or you're really savouring the taste, exploring each layer and nuance. At those times, the quick snack you rustled up, a muffin on the go, a hunger-driven pit-stop at a street vendor's cart, all you recall is a vague texture in the mouth, egg/chocolate/whatever, oozing over your throat, and instant satisfaction.
I'm off to lunch now....

Just enjoy your food with the speed you're comfortable with yea.. I'm the slowest eater within my family/friends but I'd never let it bother me at all. Savour every bit yea.. though your post doesn't sound like you find the food delicious.

I have never actually spent time analysing my food habits but since I just did that, I realise I am very much a hogger but then I am too busy to concentrate on what I am eating these days. I am too busy talking or talking. but then thats means I talk when I eat. Thats bad
