Eat Slowly and You Won't Overeat
It takes food between 15 and 20 minutes to pass from your esophagus into your stomach. It takes that long between your first bite and the moment your brain gets the signal from your stomach that it's being fed. If you eat fast like in five minutes, you still have ten minutes before your brain gets the signal that it's stuffed. That gap is costly because it allows you to put on unwanted pounds easily and unexpected.
