in #CASE you missed it… Eating Slower Could Boost Weight Loss
Researchers say slowing down while you eat could help you keep trim.
Forget winning the race, it turns out “slow and steady slims the waist.” According to a new study, eating mindfully could help you lose weight and those who scarf down their food are more likely to end up obese.
The study of 60,000 Japanese people found that their slow-eating group had a smaller average waist size, a mean body-mass index of 22.3 and fewer obese folks. In the fast-eating group, 44% were obese and the average BMI was 25. According to the World Health Organization, having a BMI of 25 means you’re overweight and 30 or higher is obese.
So researchers say that slowing down while you eat could lead to lower BMI and a more trim waist. They say other good ways to shed pounds are cutting out after-dinner snacks and not eating at least two hours before bed. But chewing slower is easier!
