*cut you food into little peices--oldest trick in the book!
*move your food around on your plate, act like your trying to get the right peice or something
*talk. ALOT. because if your talking, you cant really eat!;)
*lean more over your food, rather than sloching back in your seat, because if you sit back in your seat, it looks like your done, and gives your family a chance to really look at whats left on your plate, while if you kinda lean over your food they cant get a good look at your food.
* keep eye contact to who ever is talking, because then thry have to look you in the eye which means they are not watching your plate,
*always have something in your hand, like a glass of water, or a pretsel--carrots are the best! they are crunchy(person can hear you chewing) and they are alot to swallow(there is always some more in your mouth to eat).
*NEVER finish first. ever. it seens like you ate little.
*if there is desert, get excited/happy("yay! candy!"<like that), and then, eat it when/if someone is watching, then when they look away stuff 1/2 in you pocket. <while your doing that, look at someone whos taking/moving, it will/might get everyone else to look over too, while you hide the food.
*if someone asks you why your not eating/eating little, here are some exuses:
- dont feel very well/stomche is upset
- ate a big bf/lunch
- not 'in the mood' for whatever is serving
- ate before
- meds screw w/ appitite
good luck! ~E
