What Actually Happens In The Body When We Eat (too) Fast


People who eat (too) fast, taking big bites and quickly swallow saliva and enzymes, so they don’t get to ‘lubricate’ the food and broke it into smaller pieces before it enters the stomach. When we eat too quickly we swallow a lot of air, which can cause gas and bloating.


However, primarily the result of rapid eating can be a great discomfort, problems with digestion and the emergence of reflux symptoms during which there is a kind of return of food and stomach juices from the stomach back into the esophagus.

“Digestion begins in the mouth when we eat too fast-paced food arrives that broke it into small pieces and correctly warns, however, often eating quickly can cause reflux. The food before swallowing it takes a good chew, and how many times we chew a mouthful depends on you the food we eat and the size of a mouthful. So, it can be 3, 5, 7, 10 times, “says professor Dr. Marko Duvnjak, a specialist in internal medicine and sub-specializations in gastroenterology and hematology.

Another problem that eating too quickly can cause the cultivation is that we eat more than we actually need in order to be fed. When food enters the mouth, the body signals the digestive tract that food is on the way, and when you eat enough, the stomach signals the brain that it’s time to stop eating.

However, if you eat too fast, you’ll miss these signals, or if you slow down, your brain will have enough time to receive signals and stop eating when you realize that you are full. Studies have also found that people who eat slower consume fewer calories and feel fuller for longer.
