More Susceptible To Obesity & Metabolic Syndrome
People who eat too quickly are at a greater risk for obesity and metabolic syndrome according to preliminary research research presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2017. Metabolic syndrome is when an individual has any or all of the main risk factors: high blood pressure, abdominal obesity, high triglycerides and/or low HDL cholesterol, and high-fasting blood sugar. Researchers divided participants with an average age of 51.2 who did not have metabolic syndrome into three groups based on their eating speeds: slow, normal, or fast.
The study started in 2008 with none of the participants having metabolic syndrome. Five years later, the fast eaters were 11.6 percent more likely to develop the syndrome than their normal or slow-eating counterparts. Faster eating speed was also linked to weight gain, including a larger waistline, and higher blood glucose.
A “Crucial Lifestyle Change”
“Eating more slowly may be a crucial lifestyle change to help prevent metabolic syndrome,” said Takayuki Yamaji, M.D., study author and cardiologist at Hiroshima University in Japan. “When people eat fast they tend not to feel full and are more likely to overeat. Eating fast causes bigger glucose fluctuation, which can lead to insulin resistance. We also believe our research would apply to a U.S. population.”
