Studies Show Eating More Slowly Benefits Your Health and Waistline

Eating Slowly

Story at-a-glance -

  • A new scientific study shows that eating more slowly can decrease your food consumption and prevent overeating
  • Prior studies have found that eating more slowly and chewing your food more completely lead to decreased intake, better absorption of nutrients, better appetite regulation, and improved satiety
  • When you eat too quickly, your body doesn’t have time to go through its natural appetite signaling process or proper digestion
  • Most people do not chew their food sufficiently; you should chew each bite until it liquefies, or loses all of its texture, before swallowing
  • Consciously chewing food longer and eating mindfully are ways to slow down your eating, enrich your food experience, and improve your overall health and nutrition
