Eating slowly may cut meal size
By Shereen Jegtvig NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – People may consume fewer calories over the course of a meal when they eat slowly, a new study suggests. Past studies have come to mixed conclusions on whether how fast people eat affects how much they end up eating, Meena Shah said. She led the new research at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. “In addition most of the previous studies have not compared the effect of eating speed on energy intake in normal weight or overweight and obese subjects,” Shah told Reuters Health in an email.
