    Optimising your food uptake

    How are your eating habits? Some assume that its all about the
    composition of food followed by good table manners. There's another
    aspect. I heard from a sports exercise professional that to gain
    maximum benefits from what you eat, chew the food thoroughly. This
    requires patience and results in negligible wastage during digestion
    by increasing the surface area dr digestion. Good luck

    Well, that has some sense to it, because chewed food is easier to digest than big chunks of ingested food so it's quite logical that chewing your food would make it easier for our digestive track hence it would be digested faster.

    Re: Optimising your food uptake

    Chewing the food thoroughly has been my weakness since I was young. I was the fastest to eat in our home especially when the food is one of my favorites. My habit is to concentrate on what I am eating as if someone was chasing me. If I would eat slowly, I would lose my appetite halfway in the meal hence I couldn't do that. And I admit that indigestion is usually the result when I had eaten more than my quota. But when I am not feeling well, I have noticed that I eat slower than my normal pace.

    The smaller the food particles you swallow, the more the small intestine can absorb nutrients. Also saliva contains important digestive enzymes, so when you chew longer, it gives these enzymes more time to do their job.
