It was known that slow diet had a positive effect on weight control. The work of Japanese scientists who are studying diabetes is also evidence of this effect. The research once again showed that eating slow and regular meals reduces the risk of obesity.
According to a report in the Guardian newspaper, a study of diabetes in Japan showed that people who eat slow and regular meals have less waistline weight and a lower overall body mass index.
The survey asked about the eating habits of 59 thousand 700 adults living with type 2 diabetes who regularly under the health insurance scheme between 2008 and 2013 in Japan. Participants answered 7 questions about how many meals a day, how fast they ate, whether they had breakfast or not and how to eat and eat before going to bed.
"FOOD EATING RATE RAPID OBESITY RISK INCREASE"
The results showed that obesity increased as eating speed increased. Only 21.5 percent of slow-eating participants were obese, 30 percent of those eating at normal speed and 45 percent of fast-eating were obese.
The average body mass index was slightly higher than 22 for slow-eating, while it was 23.5 for normal eaters and 25 for fast eaters.
"RELEASING FROM BELLS RELEASED LIKE EATING FOOD"
It has also been observed that the weight of the waist increases with the speed of eating.
Findings indicate that people who eat with slow and regular meals do not miss breakfast, and that people who avoid eating before bedtime are less likely to be obese.
On the other hand, participants who changed their eating habits in the second controls were found to have decreased body mass indexes.
The results of the study were published in the "BMJ Open" science journal.
