Studies have revealed that eating too quickly can lead to several health problems. According to a study conducted by Hiroshima University cardiologist Dr. Takayuki Yamaji, chowing down food too fast can lead to problems like putting on weight and an increased risk of developing heart disease and diabetes.

A study with around 1,000 healthy adults carried out by Dr. Yamajishowed that those eating too quickly were diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes, according to The adults were asked to characterize their eating speed — slow, normal or fast, and then asked to track their health for the next five years.

Likewise, the study showed that chowing down food too fast can increase the risk of acid reflux, as the digestive tract is filled with larger pieces of food. According to the study, such a habit would lead to the organ being overloaded and to excess stomach acid leading to acid refluxes giving people an experience of a burning sensation in the chest, a sour taste, regurgitation, and even sore throat.

Meanwhile, the study found out that when people eat fast, they tend not to feel full and are more likely to overeat since eating fast causes bigger glucose fluctuation leading to insulin resistance.
