Linger over lunch to lose weight

Slow Eating May Reduce Obesity Risk, Study Says

They continue that "eating slowly may help to increase feelings of satiety before an excessive amount of food is ingested" - that is, it gives your body time to register that you've eaten something.

As part of the health checkup, participants were asked seven questions about their lifestyle, including whether their eating speed was fast, normal or slow, whether they snacked after dinner three times or more a week, and whether they skipped breakfast three times or more a week.

The team also noted changes in eating speed over the six years, with more than half the trial group reporting an adjustment in one direction or the other. Eating quickly has previously been linked to impaired glucose tolerance and insulin resistance, which can affect metabolism and fat-burning.

After taking into account other potential factors, the researchers found that those who said they ate at normal speed were 29 percent less likely to be obese than those who said they were fast eaters. In the study, obesity was defined as having a BMI score of over 25 - in the United Kingdom (UK) people are deemed to be overweight with a BMI score of over 25 and obese if they have a score of over 30.

Simon Cork, of Imperial College London, told Agence France-Presse that the study "confirms what we already believe: that eating slowly is associated with less weight gain than eating quickly".

Skipping breakfast did not seem to have any effect.

Metabolic physiology professor, Ian MacDonald from the University of Nottingham described the findings obtained in the research as a few people changed their eating speed while being followed in research, but such changes didn't support so much to the change in their BMI.

Their weight was then assessed from their BMI (body mass index) and their waist circumference. Compared to people who ate dinner within 2 hours of sleeping (at least 3 times a week), those who didn't were 10% less likely to be obese (OR 0.90, 95% CI 0.86 to 0.94). If you are like most people, it's a hard journey to lose the excess pounds gained, but a new study has yielded that there are three small habits that can help. People who say they eat "slowly" (7% of those surveyed) had a lower waist circumference on average. Therefore fast eaters would have gobbled down their food well after they have had enough. "Interventions aimed at reducing eating speed may be effective in preventing obesity and lowering the associated health risks".

"What stands out to me about this study is the positive thought that eating speed is a modifiable risk factor in a world where people feel many health risk factors are beyond their control", she said in an email.

When eating too quickly, there's more chance that these hormones won't get the chance to work properly, Rebecca, who is a Nutritional Therapist, said.
