FOCUS ON FOOD TO GET FULL: New research claims that clearing your mind while you eat and focusing on your food will help keep you from over-eating. Studies found that ‘mindful eating’ ensures that the mind is in tune with the body, enabling it to ‘hear’ the chemical messages that tell it that we are full. The researchers say that digestion involves a complex series of hormonal signals between the gut and the nervous system and it takes about 20 minutes for the brain to register that the body has eaten enough. This means that if someone eats too quickly, the signals will lag behind, leading to over-eating. Distractions also play a role, with a recent study concluding that eating at your desk could make you fat. (Family Health Corner)
