Well, I avoid eating with my hands in most situations possible. Things that are "mostly" dry like chips or fries I'm willing to handle though. If a drumstick has been served to me, it takes me about 10 minutes to figure out how I'm going to eat it. Popcorn is an important example of crossing boundaries, it is not dry enough for me to use hands. I use chopsticks when eating popcorn.

Soup I don't mind sipping directly. It is important to note that I consume [ramen] with chopsticks. I have grown so accustomed to doing so that I've kinda forgotten how to do it with a spoon, which is now awkward to try.

I rarely ever use a knife. If I want to slice something up, even steak, I use a fork. However my reluctance to use a knife sometimes leads to me just sticking something large on my fork and slowly eating it off of there.

I prefer drinking straight from cups, cups with large volume. If I am provided a straw, I tend to use it. My primary drink is chocolate milk, mixed from Hershey's syrup. Chocolate is vital to my survival. If my syrup bottle is very low, I pour milk into the container itself, shake not stir, and drink right from it. I don't consume any container-based drinks to judge beyond that (including plain milk). I drink canned soda at times. (I like your oreo-spoon approach)

Relevant to my preference of no-hands is that I am an extremely clean eater. Even things that are somewhat crumby rarely have any evidence left behind. Only things that practically explode into crumbs when touched will leave any evidence. The only times I've spilt drinks have required elaborate setups similar to that of the Final Destination movies or like a Rube Goldberg machine. Consequently I also care nothing for my posture while eating, since I won't be getting any debris anywhere.

When in the actual act of consumption, I give delicate attention to the "technique" with which I consume. I find there to be an optimal way to taste, crush, and distribute everything. A higher percentage of flavor exposed to an ideal percentage of the tongue. Each act takes into account the next as well, planning ahead if you will.

Food time is inseparable from anime time, if the option is available. I plan both before enacting either. If I cannot find an unwatched show, I must look further before I can decide on food. If I am indecisive about which show to choose, cooking gets delayed. Same goes for food delaying anime. Therefor I watch as many episodes of anime in a year as I have meals a year. I do try to find more excuses to watch anime, but it rarely happens.

I eat vegetables by setting them on fire.
...Oh wait...

I eat slowly with a knife and fork, depending on what the food is and if cutlery is necessary. I eat small amounts at a time because my stomach got messed up in an accident, so some of it was removed and they just sowed it up. If I eat a normal meal I will be very sick. Still eat normal food, except the portion is cut down considerably. It sucks but I have to live with it.


You're always making me weep. I don't mean to get noisy and it's probably none of my business but do you have a favorite position

With my teeth? And I chew slowly.

Intriguing. How do you drink?

I like your answers. Me too I'm so focused on eating and mixing different mouthfuls of food to get yummy flavours, I am never able to recall what I did during those times.]


(in response to my quoted post) Man up. No I don't.

Hmm... Eating habits? lol I'm unladylike XD

Very hungry:
Spoon, food's plate (nope, not mine. Mine is cleeeean and shiny). The spoon attacks the main dish, taking a huge portion from it, and then heads to Godzilla's mouth. After that, it heads to the rice, you can't eat a mouthful without rice! (And again with my weird common sense lol). I do this before anyone sits on the table, eat 'till I'm full,and leave the table. BTW, I forgot to mention that the way I sit is funny. Then eat 'till I feel like throwing up.

Not Very Hungry:
Sit normally, put food in my dish, c'mon fork and knife, it's your job's time, and sorry spoon, your out of business this time.

Full Yet Forced To Sit And Eat:
Take tiny portions of every dish that looks good, put some rice, ok just do your best Godzilla and eat everything, your the man! Drop dead after winning and eating everything, lay on the stomach so that you can't feel the pain in your stomach, but careful, you might throw up if you move too much.

Yup I'd say those habits make me seem like a guy huh? Re-reading this brings tears to my eyes, I never knew my case was this bad.

when at home or even a friends house i prefer to eat from a mug.... no plates or bowls. Whether it's soup, pasta, cereal, chili, chicken adobo, etc. i'm almost always eating it from a mug. If there's a mug with a spoon or fork in it lying around then you can bet i'm the culprit


Yours is the most strangest so far. It made me chortle. Mug, no disrespect but I would giggle and say oh look it's Nelley eating out of her mug again. Everyone look.



haha, if im sitting at the table i'll most likely use a plate or bowl, but if im anywhere else (car, couch, bed, etc) then I'll eat out of a mug maybe you can try it too!

I prefer to sit. On a chair, floor, cushion, it doesn't matter. And I also use whatever I feel like at the moment. I'll use whatever, spoon, fork, knife, hands, chopsticks, toothpicks, whatever.

I almost eat everything with a bowl and spoon. I never use a plate. I use the same bowl to scoop my rice.

With noodle soups, I use a fork. I like my eggs basted.

When I feel like it I use chopsticks.

When I'm too lazy, I don't use anything but a hand. I literally eat the food straight from the pots and pans on the stove.

I prefer eating in a position likened to a royal member of a family, destined to rule. I chew chocolate.

Here's a technique of eating bread: slice it into small pieces then swallow them all up and eat a lump of cheese, and drink 100 mL of water.

I like Oishi pillows frozen cold served.

I use my hands, and utensils if needed.
Posted 4/14/11
If its cereal I like to lean my head down so I can get all of the milk(Wow that sounds strange).

I always drink whatever left after a meal(Soup, Milk etc.), I am a teenage guy so I like to wolf down down and not waste too much time chewing, I like to play with oranges and grapefruit(Which is gross), before I like them(Tossing em' up and catching them), When I eat things on a bone, I hold it with one hand and only use the other hand if I have to pull to get some meat loose,

Whenver I eat an ice cream cone, I always sucked the ice cream and press it down so it doesn't fall off the cone, Whenver the cone(Or anything solid for that matter), is small enough to fit in my mouth, I shove it in to fill my mouth(Also sounded weird).

I often lift bowls and plates up to my mouth to rake in the food(Rice, corn off the cob, peas)if I'm really hungry, I also sometimes result to fingers for things like nachos and steak(I never cut steak), I use my hands most often, so to some of the guys and most females with no sense of humor, I look like a savage wolf who haven't eaten in a week.

well.. i noticed a while ago i tend to choke whenever i eat bread or rice (or go in that stage where the foods half-way down your throat and youre just left there with that uncomfortable feeling = =).. anyway, i think its because ive developed a habit of eating too fast or something. as in, for me when its time to eat, ill just eat. ill still listen in on the conversations but i think i just focus on eating my food.. so i usually somehow end up finishing before others.

but that doesnt necessarily mean that im a messy eater, in fact i prefer to eat as neatly as possible. like, when i need to use my hands to eat something, ill only use my thumb, forefinger and middle finger. ill also try to eat it with one hand if possible, but sometimes i end up dropping the food > <.. i also dont use spoons to eat, except for like cereal and noodles where i want the soup as well. i think its more convenient to have just a fork because you can pick up 90% of whatever youre eating (that was a random estimate - the rest is like liquid substances).. it also slows me down when im eating food because im trying to fit it all onto my fork ahaha =v=;;

ah, i also dont like to use knives.. i usually just dump whatever im eating onto my fork and try to eat it in small bites. if that doesnt work, ill use all my strength to cut it up with my fork.
