Hiroshima University conducted a research study in Japan. Yamaji and her colleagues followed 642 men and 441 women over 5 years none of whom had metabolic syndrome. They were divided into three groups fast, normal and slow eaters.

They found that fast eaters were 11.6% more likely to develop metabolic syndrome including three risk factors obesity, high blood sugar and high blood pressure compared with 6.5% of normal eaters and 2.3% of slower eaters.

When you eat too fast, cannot feel full and are more likely to overeat. East fast can lead to insulin resistance due to glucose fluctuation.

“Eating more slowly help prevent metabolic syndrome,” said by Takayuki Yamaji, Cardiologist from Hiroshima University in Japan.


The American Heart Association recommends eating more fruits, whole grains and vegetables, chewing more time and exercising more reduce the risk of developing metabolic syndrome.

Chewing more helps to digest food, the enzymes in saliva lubricate and digest the food and allows your taste buds to notice the meal.
