Nothing Tastes As Good As Thin Feels
Here’s something that you maybe didn’t realise about weight gain.
JAPANESE RESEARCH HAS FOUND OUT . . .
Japanese research has found that people who eat slowly are less likely to gain weight or develop metabolic syndrome, dangerous health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
People who gobble down their food are 5 times more likely to develop symptoms which raise their risk of a heart attack than those who savour each mouthful.
WHAT DID THE RESEARCHES DO ?
The Japanese researches followed 1000 middle-aged men and women for five years, monitoring their eating speed and health.
WHAT DID THEY FIND OUT FROM THIS RESEARCH ?
They found that just 2.3% of the slow eaters developed the problems stated earlier, compared with 6.5% of medium-speed eaters, and 11.6% of the fast eaters.
The researches believe that eating too quickly prevents the brain from noticing when the body has taken in too many calories. Unused calories are stored as fat, placing pressure on the heart. Eating too fast also appears to cause spikes of blood sugar, which can stop insulin working effectively leading to diabetes.

Eating more slowly may be a crucial lifestyle to help prevent the above diseases according to Dr Takayuki Yamaji, the study author and a cardiologist at Hiroshima University. When people eat fast they tend not to feel full and are more likely to over-eat. Eating fast causes bigger glucose fluctuation, which can lead to insulin resistance.
PROF. JEREMY PEARSON – British Heart Foundation
Metabolic syndrome affects one in four adults in Britain. On their own diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity can damage blood vessels, but having all three is particularly dangerous. Professor Jeremy Pearson of the British Heart Foundation said, “It’s a reminder that many of us have hectic lifestyles which may include eating quickly at the desk over lunchtime, or in a rush commuting home. It’s important that people take the time to choose healthy, balanced options rather than just reaching for ready meals or takeaways.”
ESMEE RUSSELL – British Stroke Association
Esmee Russell, of the Stroke Association, added: “Being overweight increases your risk of ischemic stroke by 22%, and if you are obese, the risk increases by 64% so tackling obesity is crucial. There are a number of steps we can all take to lower our risk of stroke, including a) eating a balanced diet, b) taking regular exercise and c) having a regular blood pressure check.”
The research was presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2017.
