Eating should be done with full concentration if you do not want to feel hungry quickly come again. Television and computer screens can cause distraction and should be avoided so that food eaten can give the sensation of fullness for longer.
This conclusion was drawn from the results of research conducted by experts from the University of Bristol recently. A total of 44 participants involved in a series of experiments to uncover the relationship between concentration when eating with obesity risk.
The participants were divided into 2 groups, each given a lunch with 9 different kinds of foods that are combined at random for a few days. There were no differences in portions and lunch schedules, only condition is that deliberately distinguish.
One group was conditioned to eat without interruption, while another group ate lunch in front of the computer while playing games. Games are played Solitaire, the classic game but pretty fun so that it can divert attention.
Approximately 1.5 hours after lunch researchers serve snacks such as biscuits, and then calculate how many biscuits are eaten. It turned out that participants who ate lunch while playing games eating biscuits 2 times more than those who ate in the condition without interference.
The researchers also revealed a brain memory impairment in participants who ate lunch in front of the computer. When asked for the variation of a lunch menu that deliberately combined at random, most of them can not remember correctly.
Disruption of memory or the ability to remember is believed to trigger the hunger that comes more quickly. As a result, the portion of a meal on the occasion of the next meal to be larger and high-risk causes of obesity.
“The concentration and memory can help a person to control the appetite, even without ever realized by the respective” said one researcher, Dr Jeff Brunstrom ,Friday (12/17/2010).
This conclusion as well as strengthen some results of studies that have been done before. One previous study says, eating while watching television can also make the hunger comes more quickly.
