Training your kids to chew food slowly

1

The study monitored the eating habits of 54 children between ages six to 17 years in the city of Durango, Mexico for a year.

The students were compared to a control group with similar demographics.

The students were divided into two groups: those who ate slowly as instructed by researchers, called the compliant group, and those who did not, called the non-compliant group. These two groups were compared to a control group.

The results were striking. The weight of the students in the compliant group decreased anywhere from two to 5.7 percent after six months and 3.4 to 4.8 percent after one year.

By contrast, the weight of the students in the non-compliant group increased by 4.4 to 5.8 percent after six months and 8.3 to 12.6 percent after a year.

The weight of the control group increased by 6.5 to 8.2 percent after one year.

The slow eating approach has the advantage of being sustainable over the long term, unlike most diets because it doesn’t require you to change what you eat on a daily basis, study co-author Geert Schmid-Schonbein from the University of California, San Diego said.
