By eating fast, you consume more calories than required by the body. When we eat fast, we always tend to overeat because our brain does not get time to realise when it is full. Eating slowly helps our brain to process and function properly. Your stomach sends a signal to the brain when it is full and thus, you stop eating.
2. You gain weight
Overeating often leads to weight gain, which gives way to other health issues. Your body stores all the extra calories in the cells, leading to weight gain. To maintain a healthy weight, eat slowly and try to be present at the moment. This helps you absorb maximum nutrients from the food you eat and prevents you from gaining unnecessary weight.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
