Perhaps more than one occasion you have wondered: is it possible to lose weight without reducing the amount of food consumption? It seems that it is and how to do it is only through the practice of exercise, but eating more slowly. Yes, as well as hear it.
The mandometer, a small device designed by Swedish Professor Per Sodersten (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm), calculates the speed at which you eat and transmits this information to a computer. In this way one can discover if you eat too fast or not. The aim of this unit is to solve the problems caused by poor eating habits. Efforts are made to be eaten in small amounts and more slowly.
In fact, a study based on a group of 106 overweight youth (9 to 17 years) published by the British Medical Journal, shows that eating more slowly can be an effective weapon to fight obesity.
The researchers responsible for this study, conducted by British professor Julian Hamilton-Shield, said that initially the teenagers ate too fast. After a year of using mandometer began to eat less and reduced speed by 11%. Thanks to its new way of eating these adolescents lost weight. Your BMI (body mass index) declined an average rate of 2.1%.
Through this example you will notice the importance of being aware of your bad eating habits and how important it is to eradicate (mandometer in between or not).
