【Eat Slower, To Lose Weight？】The pace of life in Hong Kong is hectic, same with our eating speed. In fact, eating too fast will increase the risk of obesity and metabolic syndrome. The reasons are:
1. It takes about 20 minutes for the brain to receive the message of fullness after we start eating. Eating slowly can let our body receive the sense of fullness, so to stop eating, eventually avoid excessive calories intake.
2. Eating slowly lets the food be fully chewed to increase surface area, so that starch can be broken down by amylase in saliva into finer molecules to help digestion. Therefore, if you eat too fast, it will increase the gastrointestinal burden, causing indigestion and other gastrointestinal problems.
3. The process of chewing promotes blood circulation in the stomach and intestines. Assume 300 calories of food is eaten, people who eat fast will consume only 7 calories within 90 minutes after eating, and those who chew slowly will consume 180 calories.
4. When we eat fast, blood glucose will rise rapidly, large amounts of insulin will be secreted, and the food will eventually be converted into fat and stored in our body.
