In a society where we eat on the go, and eat quickly because we’re rushing to get to our next to-do, it’s no wonder that many of us are overweight. We rarely stop to think about our food, taste every bite and enjoy it.
Turns out, new research now says that eating quickly can really pack on the pounds. In fact, according to at study in the The Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, eating a meal quickly, as compared to slowly, curtails the release of hormones in the stomach that makes you feel full. This decreased release of hormones can then lead to overeating. That’s reason enough to slow down, right?
