I am most definitely a xertzer. I always have been and likely I always will be. I have tried my entire life to slow my eating roll.. but to no avail. I did ok for awhile when i first started using chopsticks, but once I mastered that, I was right back at full speed. I think it is because I eat to live, have been a terrible cook, and I don’t often eat until I feel like I’m starving.
