London: Want to get rid of your flab? Just chew each mouthful for 30 seconds!Fighting the flab might not be down to what you eat, but how you eat it, according to new research.Scientists say the secret to beating a bulging seasonal waistline is to chew your food for 30 seconds before swallowing.Research shows this has a powerful effect on appetite, as it curbs the desire for the chocolates, sweets and snacks that can pile on the pounds.Volunteers who chewed their lunch in this way during a study carried out by psychologists at the University of Birmingham, ate half as many snacks in the afternoon as those who ate normally.Although previous studies have shown chewing for longer curbs calorie intake during a meal, researchers wanted to assess how chewing for longer at lunchtime affected "grazing" habits later in the day.
