Chewing sound can reduce how much you eat
A study published in the academic journal Food Quality and Preference shows that listening to the sound of mastication is related to a greater perception of chewing. food, and therefore less food consumed. Therefore, hearing plays an important role in weight loss.
Researchers have called this relationship between listening and paying attention to chewing and eating less of a "crunch effect." So they recommend: if you want to eat less and lose weight, pay attention to the noises of your chewing while you eat the food, turn off the music, take off the headphones and do not turn on the television.
According to them, the sound is typically understood as a forgotten food sense, but if people focused more on the sound produced when they chewed, this could reduce food consumption.
To clarify, they are not talking about the bite of biting a crispy bacon or potato chips , or a popcorn, for example. The effect is derived from the sound of full mastication, such as chewing and grinding.
How it was performed
The authors did three separate experiments to arrive at this conclusion. One of the most significant, according to them, was that it showed that the more easily perceived the sound of chewing the less people ate. In this experiment participants used headphones that made loud or low noise while they ate appetizers. They noticed that the more the chewing sound was masked by the noise of the headphones, the more people ate - on average four salty snacks versus 2.75 salty snacks from the group that ate in silence. made during feeding, such as when watching TV during meals, you take one of your eating senses and it can cause you to consume more than you normally would. At first glance the effects may not look huge, just like a little extra salt, but over the course of weeks, months or years they may appear as weight gain.
To conclude, we analyzed 2,651 women of the Women's Healthy Eating and Living Dietary Intervention Trial, a sampling that involved something around 3,088 breast cancer survivors. The researchers studied the recurrence of this type of cancer and followed study participants by, on average, seven years.
