Why People Who Eat Too Quickly Get Fat

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

It has been widely reported in the press recently that people who eat quickly are more likely to put on weight than people who eat slowly.

Some expert commentators seem surprised and bewildered by this discovery.

They shouldn’t be surprised at all.

In my book Bodypower (which was first published in 1983 and has been a bestseller all around the world) I described how we all have an `appetite control centre’ which tells us when we have had enough to eat – and when we should stop eating.

If you eat too quickly then your appetite control centre doesn’t have chance to function properly. And so there is a danger that you will eat too much.

Bodypower (which was listed by readers of the Good Book Guide as one of the most important 100 books of all time) is still as up-to-date as it was when it was published. Subtitled The Secret of Self-Healing, it is now available as an ebook on Amazon.

There is a small selection of reviews of Bodypower in the bookshop on this website.
