The Easiest Technique for So Slim: Eat Slower

Posted by Rifki Hakim Saturday, 3 December 2011

You're trying to try a variety of diet programs but still hard to lose weight? Then there is no harm in trying this new method. It is very easy, namely eating more slowly. 

Recent research found that people who are overweight eat faster than lean people, and men faster than women chew. Researchers from the also see that the refined grains consumed faster than the healthy grains. 

The Obesity Society's annual meeting in Orlando, Florida, researchers presented findings that people who ate fast food consumed about 3.1 ounces per minute, people who ate 2.5 ounces with a meal medium per minute, and slow eaters consume 2 ounces of food per minute . 

Men eat about 80 calories per minute, while a woman about 52 calories per minute. Interestingly, men who call themselves the slow eaters eat at the same level as the woman who claims to be a fast eater. 

"Gender differences obviously affected. Maybe he has a bigger mouth, but also may be associated with higher energy needs. Another possibility may relate to social norms, women may feel compelled to eat more slowly," said the study's authors, Kathleen Melanson, director of the Energy Balance Laboratory at the University of Rhode Island. 

A second study found a strong relationship between speed of eating and body mass index (BMI). People with high BMI usually eat much more quickly than with a lower BMI. BMI is a calculation based on height and weight. The researchers also observed that participants who ate food from cereal grains such as wheat and rye bread to eat more slowly than those eating the same foods made from refined grains. 

"Whole grains require more time for chewing and digestion begins in the mouth. So if you eat something that has been processed, do not take much time to digest. The seeds require more time to split," said Lona Sandon, assistant professor of nutrition health at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas. 

But, can the people who eat fast train himself to slow down her eating?
"I think changing the feeding speed will not be easy because it is an innate characteristic, but worth a try. Allow extra food in the mouth. Let food to the stomach before taking the next bite," said Melanson as reported HealthDay.com, Friday (11/25/2011).
