Eating until full and eating quickly triple obesity risk

A combination of eating until full and eating quickly may increase the risk for becoming overweight by three-fold. 3287 Japanese adults aged 30 to 69 years participated in surveys on cardiovascular risk. Factors surveyed included overweight status and dietary habits of eating until full and speed of eating as measured with questionnaires. Both men and women who reported eating until full and eating quickly had the highest values for height, weight, body mass index, and total energy intake vs participants who did not report these eating behaviours. Eating quickly and eating until full had an additive effect on the chances of being overweight, increasing the risk three-fold.
