Anyway, I have a co-worker who is very thin. She doesn’t look anorexic or anything like that, she just happens to have a very small frame and carries almost no extra fat on her body. Yes, I don’t want to admit there are people like this either but there are.
One day at lunch we were in the kitchen together. I was heating up my leftovers as I do almost every day and she pulled her lunch out of the fridge.
Two slices of meat-lovers Pizza Hut pizza.
Yeah… I know. All of a sudden my frozen pasta meal didn’t seem quite as appetizing.
I’m only kidding. I actually really enjoy my leftovers but the pizza did look good. I rarely get meat topped pizza anymore.
We walked back to the lunch room to meet the others and started eating.
I had quite a portion. To be honest I can’t remember exactly what I had but I just remember it being a lot. Like a double plate.
We all started eating and chatting. Before I knew it my meal was gone.
I glanced over at super thin co-worker and to my surprise she didn’t even finish her first slice yet!
I only say “to my surprise” because I would have literally scoffed down that pizza in about 2.2 seconds. I do have a pizza addiction after all. ;) But it’s about more then the pizza, I eat everything fast. I always have. Even the little guy notices at dinner and says things like “Mommy, you won the food race!”
yeah.. there’s a trophy I want. I win the prize for fastest dinner eater. Yay!
Anyway, I can’t help but notice that naturally-thin-girl is also naturally-slow-eater-girl. Coincidence? I’m not sure but I thought it made a good question to ponder.
So…. how fast do YOU eat? Do you think it has an effect on your weight?
