Your weapon to avoid putting on unwanted weight while still enjoying your food could be as simple as chewing longer.
In an experiment conducted on TV show How to Lose Weight Well, it was found that women who chewed 35 times ate 30per cent less than women chewing 15 times. The experiment was participated by 20 women who were asked to eat a large plate of pasta. Half of them were instructed to chew each mouthful 15 times and the other half 35 times. They were also instructed to stop when they felt full.
Oxford and Harvard-educated expert Dr Xand van Tulleken, who carried out the study, said: ‘Scientists have long known that the chewing process helps break food down into smaller particles, exposing it to saliva which allows for efficient digestion.
‘But they now believe chewing could help trigger the release of hormones which signal appetite and fullness to us as well.’
‘This difference of 126 calories in just one meal is astounding,’
‘It proves that chewing really is a safe, free, and proven diet tool with absolutely no side effects.’
