    Chewing food

    Are there any additional benefits to chewing our food more finely into small pieces creating a mush like texture versus swallowing chunks of food that may not be as well chewed? Example chunks of steaks versus finely chewed steaks.

    I'm assuming the answer would be less energy used towards the breakdown of food and our bodies working more optimally and less 'acid' is needed to be released from our 'insert organ name here' to breakdown the food?

    Reason why I ask, I'm a fast eater and I have a tendency to swallow my food quickly rather than chew, breakdown, enjoy the flavor and swallow. I figured if I read or saw some benefits of chewing my food better, it would help me break my habbit.

    food has taste. enjoy it via chewing.


    that being said, chewing food thoroughly gives no additional benefits.

    Most doctors / nutritionists agree it's important to chew your food well. The harder it is to break down the food in the stomach, the more "unhealthy" it will be for your digestive system. I started chewing my food better a couple months ago and now I feel uncomfortable not having chewed it all before i swallow, and it's alot easier on the digestion. Chew your food brah.

    Chewing the food increases the surface area of it and makes it much easier to absorb nutrients and so forth.
    Greatness from small beginnings.
