Let's be real, no one really knows how to eat ramen-without looking like a mess, that is. We enlisted Cooking Channel's Eden Grinshpan and her sister Renny Grinshpan to break down the science of it all. (ICYMI, there's a right way to eat sushi too!)

According to Grinshpan, here's how it's done. First up: Take less than you think you want. Then put in your mouth and slurp-don't bite! Suck in air along with the noodles to cool them down so you don't end up with a burnt mouth. Fun fact: The process of eating a whole ramen should only take six to eight minutes. (Looking for creative twists on ramen to whip up yourself? See 9 Bone Broth-Based Soup Recipes.)

As you might know, though, all that slurping can send extra air into your stomach and chowing down on a delicious bowl ramen can leave you with a not-so-nice side effect: bloating. And all the sodium in the broth doesn't help; it's another culprit that can leave you with food baby-level bloat. But we know that's not going to stop you from eating it. So load up your ramen with fiber-filled veggies (which help food move through your intestines) and follow your noodles with a fruity dessert (especially pineapple berries or kiwi).
