The theory of 'eat slow and you won't eat as much' has now been proven in a new study conducted by University of Rhode Island researchers. Generally speaking, researchers found women who were instructed to eat slower ended up consuming significantly fewer calories. Additionally, immediately and within an hour of consuming their meals, women who ate slowly felt fuller and reported feeling more satisfied. Researchers stated that individuals could expect to consume around 200 calories less per day simply by eating slower.
