I often eat in a hurry. I never thought about how it affected me until I read your question. I don't pay attention to what I'm eating, I just eat as fast as I can to get it over with. It leaves me feeling unsatisfied later in the day and I want to eat again. If I do eat again, it's one more rushed snack. I'll consider your words the next time I eat. How often do you eat a quick meal? Are you talking about eating fast food?

No I am not specifically talking about only Fast Food,but about Food in general.We don't pay attention to what we eat because we have taken Food for granted and have got busier with the other 'important' things in Life.I myself have rushed after taking a few quick bites.I think it is because of time crunch in our day to day activities that this happens.But nowadays whenever I feel that I can't have a leisurely snack or lunch or dinner,I eat only a small quantity.I later compensate for this by eating between meals.

I understand now. Sorry I got confused there for a minute. It's not about fast food, it's about eating food fast. I think the best way to eat is six small meals every day. That's what the 'experts' tell us. The six small meals have to be healthy. I ate a chocolate bar earlier today because I was out and didn't have time to stop and eat. I didn't feel so good after that. But, we went out for dinner later and I had crab cakes, so I feel much better now.

i am fast eater, but pushing me more just to save time for my work will just make a tummy ache. yes, it is very hard to eat fast when its like you're just swallowing your foods than chewing it first. it isnt healthy and it wont help you either in your busy day.

yes, this happens to me several times that i have to eat in a hurry because i need to be somewhere and i am running late. usually its about eating faster when i have a meeting in about 30 minutes. hehe it affects my taste, cause i dont get to enjoy the food i am eating.

I think for a young person, it would be normal to eat in a hurry and proceed immediately to what you want to do. As you get older, you appreciate food much better so you eat in a less hurried state. This is what happened to me, although I'm only in my late twenties. I learned to enjoy eating especially during lunchtime at work and have small talks with my officemates. Funny thing is, when I was younger, I don't think I was affected by eating a quick meal. But now, its common that I get constipation every now and then. I guess it depends on the lifestyle that you have.

if there is something i like to do is enjoy a meal. specially if i have the company of someone to talk while eating. when I have to eat in a hurry because of work, any special task I might have that day, I just eat snacks. For me it's impossible to push food down just to say I have it there. it's uncomfortable to eat in a hurry you get too full or at least the feeling of it.
