Eating slowly may encourage weight loss in type 2 diabetes with obesity

Participants were divided into three categories based on eating speed: fast (n = 22,070; 27.3% women; mean age, 46.6 years; 44.8% with obesity); normal (n = 33,455; 36.5% women; mean age, 48.1 years; 29.6% with obesity); or slow (n = 4,192; 44.4% women; mean age, 46.5 years; 21.5% with obesity).

Adults with type 2 diabetes who reported “fast” eating speeds had a higher risk for obesity than those who reported eating at “normal” or “slow” speeds.
