Research has shown that people who chew food more slowly end up losing more weight. Just by chewing each sip of food for 30 seconds, you can lose 5 pounds in 6 months. The control group, which normally ate, gained about 8 pounds. There was no exercise or major dietary changes in the diet.
A slower approach to eating gives you more time for the feeling of satiety to pass from the stomach to the brain. According to researchers, you can use this approach to slow eating for the rest of your life. Once you learn this, you will be able to teach your children and they will also be able to teach their children.
In the study, 54 children between the ages of 6 and 17 were asked to chew each throat for 30 seconds, with a small hourglass to help them keep track of time. The hourglass made it more like a game, and the kids reminded each other when they forgot.
The only thing mentioned in the study was not to snack between meals and drink a glass of water before meals. The results showed that a group of children who ate slowly during the year lost 3% to 5% of their body weight. Children in the control group received 7% -8%.
Slow eating allows your stomach to tell your brain that you are full. The “satiety reflex” signal takes about 15 minutes to reach the brain, but many people eat all food before it happens. Prevention is much more effective than treatment, so the method aims to prevent weight gain. It’s inexpensive and easy to make!
