Women who eat faster more likely to be obese
New Delhi: Middle-aged women who are quick in downing their meals are much more likely to be overweight or obese than women who eat slower, a new research has found.
Otago University researchers analyzed the relationship between self-reported speed of eating and body mass index (BMI) in more than 1,500 New Zealand women aged 40 to 50, an age group known to be at high risk of weight gain.
Study principal investigator Dr Caroline Horwath said that after adjusting for factors such as age, ethnicity, smoking, physical activity and menopause status, the researchers found that the faster women reported eating, the higher their BMI, reported English.news.cn.
The study by the university`s department of human nutrition could lead to new and more successful methods of treating obesity, the researchers say.
