When you thoroughly chew your food you stand to gain a lot of benefits. Chewing slowly allows you to control intake and it ensures that you absorb most of the nutrients from your food. Also, chewing properly aids in digestion; gas and bloating tend to result from food that is chewed too little and swallowed too quickly.*
Try chewing more; swallow only when your food is completely broken down. Not only will you reap the benefits of conscious chewing, but you will also be able to enjoy your meals more by savoring them.
