Eat more slowly to lose weight – not a new thing

Recently a study out of Japan hit the news reminding us that eating more slowly might help you lose weight. 

Some experts believe when people eat faster there's less time for the "I'm full" signal to reach the brain, increasing the risk of overeating.

This isn’t new information, moms have been telling their kids this for decades. Okay, some of it was just a table manners thing, but since at least the 1980s, there’s been a connection between how fast you eat and weight gain. 

The study's statistical analysis also found cutting down on snacks after dinner and not eating within two hours of bedtime were linked to weight loss; skipping breakfast was not. (Check out the importance of eating breakfast here.)

Successful weight loss strategies are as individual as you are. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to successful and long-term weight loss. Sure, there are strategies that get included for everyone such as eating less calories, increasing your exercise, but how you go about that is unique to you.
