How many times as a child have you heard your parents saying:”do not eat fast!” or “do not swallow your food without chewing it!!”Is one of the most classic recommendations!Have you ever wonder why? Well the two most important reasons are:
1)Is bad for the digestion:in fact digestion starts in your mouth not in the tummy;so the better you chew your food the less you will have to do in your stomach!This can help you feel healthy and unbloated.
2)is bad for your weight:Eating too fast doubles the chances of becoming overweight!
You will discover that chewing your food properly is one of the easiest ways to lose weight!How is that? Well the reason is that it takes approximately 20 minutes for our brain to register that we are full; so the faster we eat the less we notice we are getting full but if we eat slowly we have time to notice that we have had enough food and we will not overeat.
One of the problems in our lives is that we all seem to rush but when it comes to food one of the worst things you can do is to rush!! In fact how do you expect to lose weight if you eat at the speed of light? By eating slow you will consume less calories,enough to lose around 20 pounds a year! Yes! Can you believe it? You could shed 20 pounds without eating anything different! So stop stuffing yourself and start enjoying your food!
I know that habits are hard to die, but I’m sure you can learn to eating slow! The rule is to pay attention on what you are doing at the moment;try to concentrate on the food and its taste.Avoid reading newpapers or watching tv while eating (you will not pay enough attention on what is on your plate!). Drink some water between bites,it will help you not only to eat slower but even to feel you full faster! Chew your food 20 times before swallowing,chewing it takes time and remember the longer you take to eat,the less likely you are to overeat!
Give it a try! Apply some of these changes to your lifestyle and you will be amazed with the results you will achieve!
