Are you usually the fastest eater on the table? You might want to slow down because the quicker you eat, the wider your waist will be. An experiment by the University of Rhode Island proved that eating food over a time period of 29 minutes made participants eat lesser calories than those who wolfed down their plate of food within nine minutes. The women who ate their food quicker also felt hungrier after the meal, which means they had more calories throughout the day. Sounds familiar? Whittling that waistline can be as simple as setting your utensils down between bites and chewing your food fully before swallowing.
