Weight Loss Tips: Can Eating Slowly Help Lose Weight?
Eating quickly might certainly help keep you on schedule but it won’t do much to prevent bulking on those extra pounds. Many studies have linked eating slowly to weight loss and finally there was one study that proved how eating slowly meant eating lesser.
Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow too have approved of this slow chewing method of eating. Eating slowly makes one take small bites and increases the time you take to eat which thus gives your body time to register fullness. The longer and continuous period of chewing releases a chemical in the brain which makes a person feel more satiated. Apart from that, eating slowly also aids in better digestion which curbs any kind of unwanted bloating.
Eating slowly can also help restrict mindless eating as your brain has more time to concentrate on the food and reason out the ill effects of unhealthy or binge eating.
One does not particularly pay attention to the speed at what they eat but this habit of eating slowly may actually aid in weight loss and helps you enjoy your meals better too.
