Study Finds The Faster You Eat, The Faster You Gain Weight

eating fast means gaining weigh fast

It may be time to SLOW DOWN when you're busy stuffing your face with food. At least if you're a woman.

In a study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, researchers found that women who ate faster were more likely to be obese than those who ate slower.

Researchers determined the results after studying 1,600 New Zealand women between the ages of 40 and 50.

Based on a five-step eating speed scale, participant's body mass index rose 2.8% or 4.3 pounds per speed or "step" increase.

This isn't the first study on the matter that suggested the same association between weight gain and eating speed, nor will it be the last. The same research team plans on doing a two-year check up on these women to see if their eating speed is a predictor of how much weight they'll gain in the future.

In the meantime, we don't think it could hurt to take a couple more minutes to enjoy our food!
