Eating too fast makes you gain more weight - and it gets worse

Research by Japanese scientists has found that people who eat slowly and mindfully are less likely to pile on the pounds or develop metabolic syndrome - the name for a cluster of unsafe health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity which can damage the heart. Well, you may have thought that it's only problematic when you go out to eat with your friends or partner who can't keep up with your pace, but now a recent research shows that eating your food too fast can be harmful to your body. The faster eaters were also more than three times more likely to have gained three stone in weight. It can increase the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. But little was known about the relationship between eating speed and the risk of developing metabolic syndrome, he said.

The study was conducted on more than 1,000 middle-aged people in Japan with an average age of 51.

The result showed that fast eaters were five-and-a-half times more likely to develop metabolic syndrome than slow eaters. These factors include: excess stomach fat, typically seen in apple-shaped bodies; elevated blood sugar; high blood pressure; high triglycerides; and low HDL cholesterol, also what people usually refer to as "the good kind". They asked them to characterize their eating speed - slow, normal or fast - and tracked their health for the next five years.

A link between the injury and the allegation is not confirmed, added Taniguchi, as officials are still investigating the matter. A stable master who struck the teen with a beer bottle was sentenced to five years in jail for negligence resulting in death.

Metabolic syndrome is a big predictor of heart disease, diabetes and stroke, but it can be avoided by adjusting your lifestyle and your daily habits - including how fast you eat.

About 6 percent of participants reported they were slow eaters, 32 percent said they were fast eaters, and the rest rated themselves as "medium" eaters, which was considered a normal eating speed in the study, Yamaji told Live Science. The team determined that eating quickly was linked to being heavier, having more stomach fat and having higher blood glucose.

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