Today we wanted to talk about how to eat slower.
Eating slowly is extremely important as our digestion begins in the mouth with chewing. According to the macrobiotic diet, the Zen Buddhist diet, you should chew every bite at least 30 times for optimal health and digestion. I know 30 times might be a lot but you can start with 10 and work your way up.
Another way to slow down your eating habits is to put down the cutlery between bites. This would make sure you take the time to chew your food properly too.
The last and definitely most common way to eat slowly is to use chopsticks.
Almost one third of the world population uses chopsticks every day – about as many people use a knife and fork – and this population tends to be slimmer than the average person.
Using chopsticks involves over 30 joints and 50 muscles in the fingers, wrist, arm, shoulder, as well as thousands of nerves and will allow you to savour your food properly and don’t overeat.
