I'm new to the forum, I've done a bit of lurking and searching on this matter and haven't found much.
My question is this. Does the way you chew your food affect your weight? I ask because I'm currently overweight. I'm 26 years old 6'2 and I weigh 330 lbs. at about 18-20% total body fat. My goal is to look better then I was when I was working out profusely a few years ago. I don't have pics but I was at 275 lbs. at 13 % body fat. I'd like to be at 260 @ 9% or better. It won't be easy for me because I have an Endomorphic body type, but that's why I'm here.
I typically eat my food very, quickly (those close to me say I shovel food into my mouth as if I think someone will come by and steal it, lol). I know what I eat has a huge impact on your metabolism, and weight gain/loss.
I've been told that the way I chew also contributes to my weight gain. Is there truth to this?
Thanks in advance guys.
