Eat Slowly and Enjoy your Food

Your mother always told you not to wolf down your food and enjoy every bite. Well...It turns out she was right! A University in Rhode Island study found that women who ate slowly consumed 70 fewer calories and enjoyed their meals more than those who ate fast. Researchers instructed 30 young women to eat a pasta meal as quickly as possible or slowly chew small bites of food 15 to 20 times. Fast eaters consumed 646 calories in 9 minutes!, while slow eaters took in only 579 calories in 29 minutes. Slow eaters were much more satisfied immediately after the meal and 1 hour later.

Lose weight and enjoy your food by eating a little slower!!!
