    I have my own issues with horking down my food. Wish I could help but I'm a woofer too. :P

    I'm the same. I find the kiddo tries to mimic my big bites which usually leaves him with a messy face/table area. So, that 'sometimes' helps.


    Sadly, I just enjoy the taste of food too dang much!

    Even if you fall flat on your face, at least you're moving forward!

    Have a good cup of coffee with your meal.


    Take a bite. Have some coffee. Take a bite. Have some more coffee. Talking a lot helps, too.

    after every mouthful put the fork on the table.

    Use a dessert fork.

    @dragonmamma I always find that food ruins the taste of coffee, especially anything salty or acidic. Balsamic vinegar salad dressing is also terrible for coffee, so that rules out one of my daily meals.


    I recommend a small glass of red wine, save the coffee until after.

    Apparently I suck at life, so I'm crowd-sourcing my decisions, and sharing what I learn.

    That works, too. Bite of food, sip of wine. Repeat.


    I agree about the coffee and vinegar combo. Blegh!

    What used to work for me was reading or doing something like a crossword or internet surfing. I'd have a bite, then go back to using my fingers on the puzzle or keyboard for a while. This worked better with salad type meals (if my fingers are getting dirty from picking up meat or stuff, I tend to want to just eat until I'm done - instead of cleaning my fingers a few dozen times!) Trying to do nothing while eating used to make me eat faster because I was bored.


    Now I'm finding it easier to slow down by doing nothing else while eating.


    So what I learned is that the same thing doesn't have to work all the time :-)
