Eat slowly and keep the weight off


In this work heavy time light working life we all have today, sometimes we all feel encouraged to wolf down our food at breakneck speed. It saves time and allows us to get back to work quicker, but is it really doing us any good?

Well the answer that has come back is a resounding no, it’s not good for us at all. Remember the old sayings your mother told you. Eat slowly, eat nicely and chew your food, well in this case this ‘old wives tale’ is absolutely correct and has statistical data to back it up following a recent survey of 60,000 people.


Researchers in the study found that 42 percent of those people who took part in the study who ate their food slower than the others were likely to be overweight than fast eaters. Meaning the 58 percent who ate slowly and chewed their food properly savouring each mouthful were more likely to be able to control their weight better.

Each time we eat it takes around 20 minutes for the brain to realise that the stomach is full. Fast eaters keep eating whilst the brain is calculating whereas the slow eaters eat at the speed of the brain process meaning they actually eat less and are just as full.


The research was carried out at Kyushu University in Japan also discovered that eating an evening meal at least two hours before going to sleep cuts the risk of being overweight by up to 10 percent. The research was carried out over a six year period.
