Most of us eat WAY faster than that and so we take in WAY more calories than we need before our brains tell us we're full. The takeaway? Eat slower, eat less! And that's not the only way that scarfing down food hurts your health. Eating fast makes you gulp in a lot of air with your food, leading to indigestion, burping, heartburn and even acid reflux. All that extra air makes your belly bloat more, too. When you eat fast, you chew less thoroughly, which delivers bigger pieces ... more >>
