Is weight loss helped by slow eating?

27th October 2011

New research from scientists at the University Hospital Coventry and the University of Warwick is hoping to offer a better understanding of how food, exercise, medicines and sleep affect weight.

One of their first experiments is into the speed of eating, the way it changes appetite, and the rate at which energy is burned up. Provisional Japanese research suggested that eating more slowly may help suppress the appetite and lower the risk of developing diabetes and now the UK team wants to see whether they reach the same conclusion in a more carefully controlled trial.
