16 May Update – Some Good changes and results – Calories and Slow Eating
This post is also available in: Hindi
For the past few days I have searching online about what food can be eaten during the weight loss program, which helps in achieving the necessary nutrients which our body requires and also which does not cross the calorie count. And the most important thing, it should be tasty.
To know what calorie count is, you can read it here. In a short way, calories can be explained as the energy required for our body to function and that is measured in calories.
To lose weight, we must consume food which contains fewer amounts of calories. This will tend our body to consume energy from burning fat and it will lead to losing of fat from our body.
I have added one more thing in my diet which is really important. But I did not consider it earlier. You should chew your food properly and eat it slowly. We have heard that food and Bhajan shouldn’t be completed at an early pace. This is a very important thing in the weight loss program. It has 2 advantages:
- When you chew your food properly, it helps to improve your digestion, which ultimately helps to eliminate extra fat.
- Eating food slowly helps in killing hunger with only a small amount of food.
The Science Behind Eating Slowly
I will explain you the scientific reason behind eating food at a slow pace. When we eat food, the hormones present in our stomach send signals to our brain. The signal about being full takes 20 mins to reach the brain. If we eat at a faster rate, we would end up eating more food than required. Till the time the signal reaches the brain, we would have eaten extra. This extra food is totally unnecessary because it will accumulate more and more fat in our body which will result in weight gain. This point implies to almost everyone.
A recent Japanese research found out that eating much slowly rather slowly will help in easy weight loss. We know the exact reason behind it. Eating less will give you a feeling of completeness and we will consume less calories, which will tend to burn fat.
Japanese study involving 1,700 young women concluded that eating more slowly resulted in feeling full sooner, and thus eating fewer calories at mealtime. WebMD.com Here
