Eating slower may help trim your waistline

Posted: 03 Jan 2014 03:10 AM PST

A new US study finds that eating slower may help you cut calories and feel fuller longer.

ONE way to eat less is to simply slow down, a new US study suggests. Eating your meals more slowly may help you consume fewer calories while also feeling fuller longer afterwards.

Published online Jan 2 in the Journal Of The Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics, the research looked at two groups of 30 people – one group of people were at a normal weight while the second group were overweight or obese.

In the study, both groups were given the same meal and told to eat it as if they had plenty of time, taking small bites and chewing well. On a separate occasion, they were given the same meal but told to eat it as if they were short on time, to take larger bites and swallow quickly. At both occasions, participants were told to eat as much of the given meal as they wanted.

The Texas Christian University researchers found that both groups ate less food and fewer calories when they slowed down, although the normal weight group ate fewer calories, around 88 fewer calories compared to 57 fewer calories for the overweight group. Both groups also reported feeling fuller for longer after eating slowly and were less tempted to snack an hour after eating.

While the study was small, WebMD reports that "there are some useful messages here for anyone struggling to keep to a healthy weight." They add: "It can be hard to find time to eat properly during a busy day, but snatching a sandwich and eating it quickly at your desk may not be the best way to keep your weight under control." – AFP Relaxnews

Study links marriage with weight gain

Posted: 02 Jan 2014 05:45 PM PST

Some put on almost 3kg a year.

SAYING "I do" could have an impact on your waistline, according to a survey conducted in Britain by Forza Supplements and reported by the Daily Mail.

Of the 1,000 people polled for the study, a majority admitted to growing heavier since tying the knot. For 40% of respondents, weight gain occurred at a rate of 1.8kg per year on average.

While 22% of those surveyed reported gaining 0.9kg annually since entering marriage, nearly as many respondents said they gained almost 3kg per year.

Somewhat reassuringly, almost a fifth of those surveyed (18%) indicated that they had not seen a change on the scales.

When asked to explain the reasons behind their sudden weight gain, over 50% of respondents who had become heavier since their wedding day confessed that they spent more time snacking together in front of the TV. A majority of respondents also indicated feeling less pressure to maintain a slim figure once they had settled into the commitment of marriage. – AFP Relaxnews
