Do You Eat Your Food Quickly or Slowly?

Are you a fast or slow eater?

It may not be something you’ve considered, but the speed at which you chew your food has a lot to do with your digestion.

Fast eaters may have more digestive discomfort than those who chew their food well.  When you chew your food thoroughly, breaking it down before you swallow, it leaves less for your digestive system to break down, thus making it easier and quicker to digest.

It can be awkward to get in the routine of it, but chew your food 20-30x per bite and see what a week of this practice does for your digestion.
