    What is the exact nature of the speed being slower? Is it comfort, heartburn, fear, embarassment, physical impairment, or something else? That answer will change the responses you get to be more helpful, I think. Nov 29, 2018 at 21:04

Just change your eating strategy and don't be embarassed.

  1. Eating slowly is actually a very good and healthy thing. Your friends are the ones in the wrong way, don't feel the need to change because of bad social ideology.

  2. Eat what you can, and save the rest for later.

  3. If you feel embarassed, eat what you can and abandon the rest. Its not unusual to not finish your food where i come from. Eat a small amount from each dish. You will seem really posh and people will think you have really high taste to not be desperate and rush to finish food.
