Avoid Eating So Fast: Savor, Chew, and Limit Obesity


Sometimes it's exceptionally hard to eat slow and really chew and savor your food. Instead of taking the time to get the full satisfaction from your meal, you eat and eat and eat until there's absolutely nothing left, scarfing down your food and barely giving it any time in your mouth. A few hours later, you still feel hungry, but you know that you're not "physically hungry" but you need to eat to take the edge off. You probably scarfed down some sugars, carbohydrates, proteins, or fats to get that fix you were looking for- but you could have avoided it all together if you had just eaten a little slower.
 
 
There are several reasons why you shouldn't eat too fast:
 
First, part of the processes that make eating great are associated with taking your time to eat
 
All throughout our childhood, we're taught that the tongue is the most important taste organ, but this might not be the case. Have you ever felt like you just can't taste a meal the same way when you have a cold?
It's because you can't.
 
The human body employs several different tactics to help you salivate and break food down better. Yes, the tongue does taste several different tastes (6 or 7 to be exact), but the mouth also plays a contributing factor in accumulating flavors and aromas. Studies suggest that as you eat, microscopic particulates of your meal form in your mouth and throat, and create a sort of invisible coat against the back of your throat that helps you taste what you're eating.
 
When you're eating fast, you don't develop these tastes, and your meal just doesn't taste as fulfilling or "good." When you don't get this feeling, you eat more to gain the same satisfaction from the larger amount that you've eaten.
 
Second, your body operates better when it feels fuller, you burn more calories and your metabolism works harder
 
When you eat, your body is doing several things, other than just putting food in your mouth. When you chew, saliva helps break down food particles before it travels down the throat and into your stomach. The processes aren't autonomous, however, otherwise you'd never feel the need to eat. After 20 minutes, your stomach sends a signal to your body that it's full, gives the body the go ahead to fulfill several tasks (like maintaining heat, twitching, and thinking) that it needs to work at the highest levels possible.
 
When you eat fast, your body isn't breaking down the food as well. This equates to less broken-down nutrients that your body needs to sustain itself, thus causing your body to be less effective, making you eat more. You're tired, more lethargic and "slow" because you've overeaten.
 
 
Third, you stay full longer, and feel more fulfilled.
 
One of the biggest pieces of the puzzle that scientists have discovered is that the body actually operates better when you eat slower, because enzymes that the body releases (like ghrelin) when your stomach is empty are ended when your stomach is full. After you digest your food, your body is spurred into action in your guts.
 
A huge portion of the "nutrition diet" revolves around the consumption of leptin and other hormones that are triggered when you're full. What you'll find is that you'll eat smaller, more proportionally sound and healthy portions and have the same amounts of energy that you had before. 
 
You shouldn't eat to fast- to help you lose weight, get more satisfaction from the food you eat, and more. Your digestion will improve, your health will improve, and you're likely to even lose weight from your decreased appetite alone.
