Here’s an easy way to put the brakes on weight gain: Sl-o-o-o-w down at the dinner table.
In a recent Japanese study of 59,717 women and men with type 2 diabetes, the slowest eaters were 42% less likely to become obese over five years compared with the food gobblers.
One reason that taking your time while eating may help keep you slim is that it gives your mind and body time to realize that you feel full, so you can put down your fork before you overdo it.
In this study, two other strategies-skipping after-dinner snacks and not eating within 2 hours of going to sleep-also reduce the likelihood of obesity.
