Does eating slowly have any impact on weightloss?

Does eating slowly have any impact on weightloss?

eat_slowI have already covered this topic in my previous post Eat slow to prevent weight gain , and I just cant stress enough on the fact that this technique really does help you to lose weight.

The speed at which you eat can also have an influence on your body shape. If  you eat quickly, you are likely to eat more. the stomach has stretch sensors that send the ‘STOP SIGNAL” to your brain after you have eaten enough. But it takes time for the brain to register fullness,  so if  you eat quickly you end up eating more kilojoules because your brain wont register fullness before you’ve eaten more than you need. whole diet books have been written on this topic alone. It does help to eat slowly, so take your time and really savour your food.

Chewing your food more has three benefits: The speed you eat is slowed down, your chances of over indulgence are reduced, and your digestion will be improved.

Here are a few tips to slow down your eating.

  • Sip water between mouthfuls.
  • Chew your food a little more, and really savour every mouthful.
  • Eat healthy foods early in your meal, so there is less room for the higher-fat foods later.
  • Dont listen to fast paced music while eating.
  • let your meal settle for a few minutes before having a secod serving.

If you have tried this technique earlier or will try in the future. Please share your experiences.

Calorie level in a diet program

Calorie level in a diet program

Most weight loss diets provide 1,000 to 1,500 calories per day. However, the number of calories that is right for you depends on your weight and activity level. At these calorie levels, diets are referred to as low-calorie diets. Self-help diet books and clinical and non-clinical weight loss programs often include low-calorie diet plans.

The calorie level of your diet should allow for a weight loss of no more than 1 pound per week (after the first week or two when weight loss may be more rapid because of initial water loss). If you can estimate how many calories you eat in a day, you can design a diet plan that will help you lose no more than 1 pound per week. You may need to work with a trained health professional, such as a registered dietitian. Or, you can use a standardized low-calorie diet plan with a fixed calorie level.

The selected calorie level, however, may not produce the recommended rate of weight loss, and you may need to eat more or less.
