A research a Japan suggests that a meal should be taking with a medium speed rather than pouring everything into your stomach what you find on your table. A dinner done hastily without giving required time to chewing may cause a problem for your stomach in future. Summing up almost 23 studies the researchers have found that fast eater is likely to face the risk of obesity than the one who eat slower.
According to Kathleen Melanson, Ph.D., of the University of Rhode Island who has also studied eating speed and weight the reason of this slight carelessness of attitude resulting in a big fat obesity is that the longer the food stay in your mouth it will trigger the sensors in your tongue and oral cavity to send satiety signals to your brain.
Besides, the physical demonstration of biting sparks the influx of histamine in your neurons that strengthens the “I’m full” message, she says. What’s more, if your cerebrum perceives that you’re full, you’ll more averse to go after seconds, which eliminates additional calories.
She further elaborates that doctors have yet now reached to the conclusion of how long a person should chew on his/her food. The primary reason for eating your food proper is that if you don’t do it properly, it will take more effort for your stomach to digest it and will have a wrecking effect on your metabolism. It’s ideal you chew enough until your food breaks down into chunks.
At that point, hold up until you feel the sustenance go down your throat and hit your stomach before topping off your fork once more.
“Take a deep breath or two and then go for the next bite,” she says.
