Chew More Eat Less

"You already know it's good for your waistline to take your
time to eat. Now new research finds that chewing each bite
40 times (instead of the typical 15) may help you eat 12 percent
fewer calories per meal. The extra munching doesn't just slow
you down- it may actually help fight hunger by lowering levels
of an appetite-stimulating hormone called ghrelin and increasing
an appetite-reducing hormone called cholecystokinin."
