Are you a fast eater? According to Laiko General Hospital in Athens, Greece, all you have to do is slow down to help reduce overeating--which, in return, could see you a few pounds lighter.

The hospital's research has shown that when a person eats a meal fast, it halts the hormones in the stomach from feeling full. And, because those hormones have been restricted from the speed you devour food, people can tend to overeat due to the fact your body isn't telling you to stop.

Personally, I am a fast eater, and I have to agree with this study. Because I eat at lightning-fast speeds, I tend to eat more because it takes longer to feel full.

How about you? Do you eat fast? Do you see it affecting your waistline?
