Eating Slowly Is Good For You, According To Experts, So Savor Each Bite

Elite Daily – April 5, 2018

Dr. Robert Graham, M.D., of FRESH Med at Physio Logic NYC, tells Elite Daily that some ancient medicinal belief systems, such as traditional Chinese medicine, and the Ayurvedic way of living, suggest “you should chew your food 25 times” per bite. Now, that might sound a little excessive, and maybe even tedious, but when you consider the physical benefits you’ll reap by slowing down and actually eating, rather than inhaling your food, it’s not a bad idea. That, and 25 chews per each and every bite will force you to actually take in the meal.
