Slow eating might help curb calories
As people look for fresh strategies to cut back on calories and shed pounds, a new study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests that simply eating more slowly can significantly reduce how much people eat in a single sitting.
Slow eating seemed to increase water intake and stomach swelling, researchers said, while also affecting the biological process that determines how much food people consume.

British researchers said their findings could help shape public health policies, including campaigns to promote healthy eating.
