For me I have to peel the skin off almost any fruit I eat.

I also eat my food in proportions, IE: If it is a 3 course meal, the last 3 bites are one of each serving.

OMG....I thought I was the only one who did this! LOL I do exactly the same thing with all my meals!!!!!

Did it today w/ lunch, for example...I have my sandwich, chips, pickle and potato salad. Everything is eaten evenly and when I'm done, I'm down to the last bite of everything! Too funny!

Same here, but I only peel the skin of fuzzy fruits; peach, apricots, grapes (nut fuzzy but still) they all make my teeth hurt and gives me goose bumps

And yes the last 3 bites, must be one of each serving... I make sure while I eat to balance the bites.

My husband is so much wierd... he eats one serving at a time IE: salad first, mashed potatoes second and he finish with the meat he never mix them together.

I don't peel it if I don't have to. I do peel such as an oranges or grapefruit. I don't take much more that the zest off of an orange. I like to eat skin and all of Irish type potatoes. I do wash thoroughly and remove bad spots but the peel is more flavor. Can't stand cooked bell pepper but give me them raw any day. I eat hot peppers raw, cooked, pickled, in sauces, etc. I'm only picky about a few foods and those I'm ultra picky over. I like beef stew but have not much use for vegetable beef soup with the same veggies only cut up smaller. Go figure. I eat in what ever order that strikes my fancy on any given day. The one thing I do is if there are food on my plate that I like less I eat them first and save the best for last. I've done that since grade school lunches.

OK, just don't be calling any shrinks on me, alright? I admit, when I have potato chips, I set aside the ones that are whole, then eat the broken ones first, followed by the whole ones, starting with the smallest first, going up to the largest. If they happen to be kettle chips, I also sort by crunchiness. For example, those that are folded over or brown are crunchier than the others, so those get eaten last.

I guess I save my favorite of any meal for last because we were taught to clean our plates, so I ate the stuff I didn't like first to make it easier on me.

I feel so much better now!

I'm not laughing at you but it was so funny the way you wrote it.

I say, you take 2 hours to select what you can eat in 5 minutes and they all go in the same place, crunched, hihihi
