    There’s nothing peculiar about a person walking along a Manhattan street or any other street for that matter, eating an ice cream cone. It’s the approach that’s sometimes a little strange — ice-cream-cone-eating, is not a cut-and-dried, standardized, routine matter. It is an accomplishment with infinite variety, ranging from *methodical and workmanlike procedures to methods that are visions of delicacy and grace. The infinite variety displayed in eating ice cream isn’t by any means unique; it applies to all kinds of food. The fact is that although a lot of research has been done on what people eat and where they eat it, serious studies on the way food is eaten have been sadly neglected. Back to ice cream, as an example. If five people leave an ice cream store with cones, five different methods of eating will likely be on view. There are people who stick out their tongues on top of a scoop, but don’t actually eat the ice cream. They push it down into the cone — push, push, push — then take an intermission to circle the perimeter, lapping up possible drips. After this, it’s again back to pushing the ice cream farther into the cone. When the ice cream has virtually disappeared into the crackly cone, they begin eating. These people obviously don’t live for the moment; they plan for the future, even if the future is only two minutes away. Gobble up all the ice cream on top and be left with a hollow cone? Forget it. Better to *forgo immediate temptation and then enjoy the cone right to the end. On the other hand, there are the “now” types who take great gobby bites of the ice cream. Eventually, of course, they get down to an empty cone, which they might eat, and then again, they might throw away (if the latter, one wonders why they don’t buy cups rather than cones, but no point in asking). The most irritating of all ice cream eaters are the elegant creatures who manage to devour a whole cone with delicate little nibbles and no dribble. The thermometer might soar, the pavement might melt, but their ice cream stays as firm and as rounded as it was in the scoop. No drips, no minor calamities — and it’s absolutely not fair, but what can you do about it? Some of the strangest ice cream fans can be seen devouring sundaes and banana splits. They are known as “layer by layer” types. First they eat the nuts and coconut and whatever else is sprinkled on top. Then they eat the sauce, then the banana, and finally the ice cream, flavor by flavor. Some might feel that they are eating ingredients and not a sundae or a split, but what do they care? As for chocolate eaters, there are three main varieties, at least among those who like the small individual chocolates. A certain percentage pop the whole chocolate into their mouths, crunch once or twice and down it goes. Others pop the whole chocolate into their mouths and let it slowly melt. A smaller number hold the chocolate in hand while taking dainty little bites. Peanuts and popcorn are a completely different matter. Of course, there are always one or two souls who actually pick up single peanuts and popcorn kernels, but the usual procedure is to scoop up a handful. But even these can be subdivided into those who feed them in one at a time and those who sort of throw the handful into the open mouth, then keep on throwing in handfuls until the plate, bag, or box is empty. The feeders-in-one-at a-time are, needless to say, a rare breed with such iron discipline that they probably exercise every morning and love it. Candies like M & M’s are treated by most people in much the same way as peanuts or popcorn. But there are no exceptions, among them those who don’t start eating until they have separated the colors. Then they eat one color at a time, or one of each color in rotation. Honestly. A sandwich cookie is a sandwich cookie, and you take bits of it, and so what? So what if you’re the kind who doesn’t take bites until it’s pulled apart into two sections. And if you’re this kind of person, and an amazing number are, the likelihood is that the plain part will be eaten first, and the one with icing saved for last. Watch Oreo eaters. A woman who seems quite normal in other aspects said that although she considers her eating habits quite run-of-the-mill, she has been told that they are, in fact, peculiar. “If I have meat or chicken and a couple of vegetables on a plate, I go absolutely crazy if they don’t come out even,” she said. “I like to take piece of meat and a little bit of each vegetable together. If, as I’m eating I end up with no meat and a lot of broccoli, or no potatoes and a piece of chicken, it drives me mad.” A man listening to all this rolled his eyes in disbelief. Peculiar is putting it mildly, he said. He would never neat like that. How does he eat? “One thing at a time,” he said. “First I eat the meat, then one of the vegetables, then the other. How else would you eat?”

    Well, from what I can see here, you can go with this idea: depending on how you eat something, you can be named what you eat. Ex: Banana Split. Someone who eats the banana split layer by layer could be classified as an analytic, extremely careful person.

    AND here: “If I have meat or chicken and a couple of vegetables on a plate, I go absolutely crazy if they don’t come out even,” she said. “I like to take piece of meat and a little bit of each vegetable together. If, as I’m eating I end up with no meat and a lot of broccoli, or no potatoes and a piece of chicken, it drives me mad.” This person could be classified as someone who is very controlling; perhaps someone who has anxiety or OCD.

    the title " you are how you eat" has several meanings. depending on how you eat something, you can be named what you eat. Ex: Banana Split.

    the title " you are how you eat" has several meanings. depending on how you eat something, you can be named what you eat. FOR EXAMPLE THE NAME "Banana Split." Someone who eats the banana split layer by layer could be classified as an analytic, extremely careful person. “If I have meat or chicken and a couple of vegetables on a plate, I go absolutely crazy if they don’t come out even,” she said. “I like to take piece of meat and a little bit of each vegetable together. If, as I’m eating I end up with no meat and a lot of broccoli, or no potatoes and a piece of chicken, it drives me mad.”This person could be classified as someone who is very controlling; perhaps someone who has anxiety or OCD.

    The title "You Are How You Eat" has several meanings. Depending on how you eat something, you can be named what you eat. FOR INSTANCE, WE CAN CONSIDER THE banana split FOUND IN THE ESSAY. Someone who eats the banana split layer by layer could be classified as an analytic, extremely careful person. BECAUSE THIS PERSON EATS IN LAYERS, WE CAN ASSUME THAT HE OR SHE EATS FOOD IN PARTS SO AS TO IDENTIFY EACH FLAVOR. ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF FOOD DEFINING HOW SOMEONE EATS IS (ALSO IN THE ESSAY) THE WOMAN WHO PAIRS EACH BITE OF CHICKEN WITH A VEGETABLE: “If I have meat or chicken and a couple of vegetables on a plate, I go absolutely crazy if they don’t come out even…I like to take piece of meat and a little bit of each vegetable together. If, as I’m eating I end up with no meat and a lot of broccoli, or no potatoes and a piece of chicken, it drives me mad.” This person could be classified as someone who is very controlling; perhaps someone who has anxiety or OCD. THESE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES OF what is meant by the tile "You are How You Eat"
