This in from the January issue of “Health” magazine, which I like a lot:
Women who rush through meals are twice as likely to be overweight, regardless of what they eat., according to a Japanese study in the “British Journal of Medicine.”
The problem: wolfing down food may not give your brain enough time to realize you’re full, researchers say, so you keep eating and stuff yourself. Eating in front of the TV may have similar drawbacks.
And some meals – think fast food – offer a double whammy because they’re leaded with calories and easy to gobble fast.
The key is to try to chew more and just S L O W D O W N.
Look, this is an issue for me. I remember by grandfather tells me to “chew my food” when I was a little, pudgy, boy.
Give it a try.
