The Fast Track To Obesity

Slow down when chowing down. Research in the International Journal of Obesity shows a correlation between how fast you eat and your risk of obesity.

 

Study participants who scoffed like contestants in a hot-dog-eating contest recorded BMI scores that were an average 1.78 points higher than those who ate at a normal speed.
