Does the speed at which you eat effect your metabolism/weight?

Forgive me if this seems a bit of a daft question but bare with me.....For as long as ive been able to feed myself ive been a quick eater, i.e. i dont chew my food as thoroughly as i probably should (an observation my parents made for years) and just gobble it down.

As a little experiment this week, i have conciously eaten very slowly so much so that i am the last to finish my meals. Subsequently i have noticed that im not anywhere as hungry as I usually am (especially between meals) nor do i get really bad carb cravings- my poor will power is enough to fight what small ones i do get away. Bonus!

Would it be a coincidence that ive also upped my water intake from 3 litres a day to 6 where possible and is helping me to feel fuller or a combination of my new eating habits and the3 increase in water?

Would it also be a coincidence that ive lost 3lbs and an inch off my waist!!!???

Your thoughts please.....................

    Hi mate, yeah I tend to wolf food down. It takes your body (so I've read) around 15-20 mins to realise you have eaten, so the slower you eat the less you are likley to eat.> this is also Paul Mckenna's main tip in his weight loss book. Also states to chew the food thouroghly as you digest it easier, and hunger or mostly cravings are usually a sign of thirst, in other words when your craving something to eat, sometimes it's mistaken and all you need is water.

    Think I'll give this a whirl for a few weeks, BTW water helps speed up the fat burning process so I've read, and helps you feel full.

    I've got a belly that need cremating so I'll do as you have done see if I'm as lucky
