Everyone has read or been told countless times;
“eat slowly, chew your food well; it takes twenty minutes for your brain to get the feeling full message to your stomach”
But there is another far more powerful benefit in keeping the food in your mouth, which is even more important to those wishing to find the ‘secret’ to permanent weight loss, as detailed in this article in the Daily Mail.
A vital part of the digestion process of food starts in the mouth. Saliva contains the enzyme Amylase, which can break down starch, additionally salivary Lipase in the mouth commences the breakdown of fats, but of course, only if you don’t swallow the food too quickly!

Over eighty per cent of new clients confirm that they are fast eaters. A recent client came up with the ‘Mantra’ Thin girls don’t swallow…..or Thin Women Eat Slowly.”
