How much time you take in having your meals?Today, we are living in a modern age where people have no time to spare even for important things in life. Everyone is running with hectic pace in the race of life. As per Ayurveda and even otherwise it is believed that we should eat our food slowly chewing it as much as possible. It is also said that the process of eating should be slow enough so that mind can register it in its entirety. There is definitely a relation of eating time to our health due to various medical reasons.
Now, many people, whatever their compulsions are, taking their food in a hurry and many of them are finishing it quickly in hardly less than 6-7 minutes. This is too high a speed if to be seen from medical point of view. This is not eating, it is in fact gulping down which is not accepted by body as per its rhythm.
