How many times should you chew your food?

If you’re trying to lose weight and suffer with acid reflux here’s a study to chew on:

The more your choppers mash up each bite of food, the less food you’re likely to eat at a meal, Chinese researchers reported recently in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

In other words, Mom was right, although her advice on this subject might have stemmed more from an exaggerated fear of choking than of having to buy clothes for you in the chubby department. The new study confirms: Don’t wolf down your food. Chew it, at least 32 times before swallowing. If after 32 chews if it isn't thoroughly broken down chew it some more.
