A new research study confirms that eating more slowly and taking extra time to chew your food leads to an overall lower caloric intake.
By doubling the number of chews, caloric intake was reduced by 15%. Normal weight individuals were shown to eat more slowly than obese/overweight eaters. If you want to lose weight, take time to chew your food! Eating slowly also improves digestion and absorption of nutrients. A few deep breaths before eating coupled with a less-hurried, more mindful approach toward food goes a long way to improve health!
