Eating slowly helps us to think about what we are eating so that we can concentrate on tastes, textures and temperatures of food and start to recognise when we are full. The faster we move the more calories we burn and the better value we get from our fitness minutes.
Eating slowly can also help when you are trying to lose weight because it can make you fuller faster. When people eat to fast they consume too much and therefore expand their stomachs. Eating slowly can also look more appealing to the eye than gorging down your food at a table. 306
