Do we eat more than required?I have read that generally people eat much more than actually required. Many people have become habituated of continuing to eat even after intake of their actual requirement without realising that they are overeating.
It is said that if your are finishing your food in less than 20 minutes by gobbling up food, then there are chances that you are overeating. Ideally the food should be chewed properly and each morsel should be savoured. Many overeat just because either they are bored or have nothing interesting to do e.g. they continue to munch while sitting in front of television.
Habitually eating more than required stretches the size of stomach and the individual feel like eating more daily to fill the stretched stomach. However, intake of only required amount of food for few months restores the original size of the stomach again and after eating only required amount of food one starts feeling satiated.
What are your observations in this regard?
