Not that I am aware of. Is that your only symptom or behavior? Do you have fears about food, or are you anxious around food? Why do YOU think you eat fast, and what is ‘fast’ to you? Please feel free to share more. Thanks!

Eating Fast? Like Speed

Eating fast? Like speed wise?? Elaborate… I have a friend that does that, like compulsively.
Its very Freudian, apparently, subconsciously it goes back to the guilt and shame part associated with food. But internally she knows she needs to eat, so she does, but gets through it fast.
I don’t know if you can relate to that or maybe you are just a fast eater. Military folks eat rather fast also.
