Taking your time over meals cuts danger of heart disease

Lead researcher Dr Takayuki Yamaji, from Hiroshima University in Japan, said: "Eating more slowly may be a crucial lifestyle change to help prevent metabolic syndrome".

Yamaji and colleagues evaluated 642 men and 441 women whose average age was 51 at the start of the study in 2008.

According to a release, people who ate slowly were less likely to be obese or develop metabolic syndrome, which are among a variety of factors that increase your risk of health problems like diabetes or heart disease.

At the end of the study, the fast eaters had also put on more weight and had larger waistlines - perhaps because their speedy meals didn't give their bodies a chance to register how much they'd eaten.

Fast eaters were nearly twice as likely to develop metabolic syndrome compared with their normal eating counterparts.More specifically, fast eaters had an 11.6 percent higher chance of developing the risk factors, compared with a 6.5 percent chance in normal eaters. Lots of research, she says, has shown that eating fast is associated with weight gain and other health issues.

The participants, who were all healthy at that point, were asked to describe their usual eating speed as slow, normal or fast and divided into these three groups.

The study authors conclude, "Eating speed was associated with obesity and future prevalence of metabolic syndrome".

Those who scoffed their food were five times as likely to be at high risk of diabetes, stroke and heart disease compared to slow chewers.

The research was presented on November 13, at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2017. These include abdominal obesity, high fasting blood sugar, high blood pressure, high triglycerides and low ‘good' HDL cholesterol.

Munching on "snack" foods while standing up leads people to forget what they've eaten - and they're more likely to gorge again later.

Also, Obesity is often attributed to a simple equation: People are eating too much and exercising too little.

The study focused on the relationship between eating speed and the incidence of metabolic syndrome, which is the collective name given to five risk factors for serious cardiometabolic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
