How to Reduce 100 calories : For every meal time.

The Quote, “Slow and steady wins the race” explains in detail how the things manifest when done slowly and with steady pace.  This quote when applied to eating habits, the results were simply amazing!!.   Lets get into research details, Texas Christian University researchers have found that eating slowly and having in smaller pie makes us feel less hungry an hour afterwards than if we had fastly.

They looked at how eating speed affects the number of calories consumed during a meal and also asked volunteers about their feelings of hunger or fullness after their meals.

During the slow-paced meal, people were told to imagine they had no time constraints, take small bites, chew thoroughly, and pause and put the cutlery down between bites.
For the hastily-eaten meal, they were told to imagine they were in a rush, take large bites, chew quickly, and not to pause and put the cutlery down.

When eating slowly, the participants chowed down an average 88 fewer calories than during the fast meal.
Slow eaters also tended to drink more water with their meal, which aids feelings of fullness.

"The higher water intake during the slow eating condition probably caused stomach distension and may have affected food consumption," Professor Meena Shah said.

"Slowing the speed of eating may help to lower energy intake and suppress hunger levels and may even enhance the enjoyment of a meal."
