At the start of the study nearly 22070 people routinely wolfed down their food,33,455 ate at normal speed, and 4192 lingered over every mouthful. The slow eaters tended to be healthier and have a healthier lifestyle than either the fast or normal speed eaters. After taking account of potentially influential factors, the results showed that compared with those who tended to gobble up their food, those who ate at a normal speed were 29 % less likely to be obese rising further to almost 42% for those who ate slowly.
