Fight Weight and Hunger by Thoroughly Chewing Your Food!

An age old saying about eating your food slower and chewing 32 times to attain and maintain healthy weight was recently shown to be correct. More studies are needed to show how it will impact diabetics and people diagnosed with borderline diabetes. For the time being what can be said is Chewing your food more might just be the right think for your waistline, pocket and help fight that urge for the goodies!

(Lisbon, Portugal) Thorough chewing of food stimulates the release of 2 intestinal peptides that reduce appetite and food intake in obese individuals, according to the results of a study presented here at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) 47th Annual Meeting.

Research was done in Japan, led by M. Saito from the Department of Clinical Pharmacology and Medicine at Ohu University in Fukushima, Japan. They reported that their study is the first to show that thorough chewing stimulates postprandial increases of glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 and peptide YY (PYY), both of which are secreted by intestinal L cells.

Chew more thoroughly, Eat slower and Savour the Flavour! and Watch your Weight twice daily to see Positive Results.
