Health Tips: There are several health hacks available online, however, did you know that controlling your eating speed can drastically affect your health? Find out how.

Health Tips: Do you eat your food while leisurely taking your time or are you a quick eater? You may be wondering, “What difference does it make? Food has to be consumed one way or another to gain energy, isn’t it?” Sorry to burst your bubble, but you are only partially right. While it is correct that you need food to gain energy, a major factor that keeps you healthy depends on the speed with which you consume your food. Let’s find out which is healthier.

Health Tips: How eating speed affects health?

You must have heard from elders since your childhood to chew your food properly. Back then it seemed like just another table etiquette you had to learn. However, Anatomical studies also back this up. Chewing your food properly promotes better digestion, thereby keeping your overall health in check. It takes no expert to tell you that you have to eat your food slowly to chew it properly. Eating slowly also allows your stomach to produce enzymes adequately which promotes better absorption of energy from consumed food. You will be surprised to know that eating your food slowly will also help regulate your blood sugar. Thus, diabetics must keep tabs on their eating speed.

On the other hand, fast eaters are prone to many stomach-related issues. Eating your food quickly impacts the body in the exact opposite manner of eating slowly. It obstructs the work of digestive enzymes causing issues like indigestion, bloating, etc. Eating quickly is also responsible for obesity in several individuals. It also makes you prone to catching Type II diabetes since eating quickly promotes rapid production of glucose in the body.

Eating slowly vs quickly, which is better?

Since all the evidence points toward eating food slowly, you must be thinking we already have a clear winner here. However, you must know there are downsides to eating your food too slowly as well. For instance, you may suffer from more gaseous issues. So, the bottom line is that you don’t have one side to pick. Rather, a balance must be maintained when it comes to eating speed.
