The Chopsticks Diet: lose weight by eating with chopsticks

The London-based Japanese writer Kimiko Barber has just introduced a new book entitled The Chopsticks Diet, in which she explains that eating with chopsticks will help you lose weight. According to Barber, “Eating with chopsticks slows you down, and so you eat less.”

Eating fast will make the person overeat because it takes 20 minutes for the brain to register what the stomach contains. It’s harder for Westerners to eat with chopsticks; Therefore, when eating with chopsticks, it means taking smaller mouthfuls, which tend to get chewed better, slowing down the meal, and making it easier to digest.

This brings up to my mind a brilliant money making idea! I should introduce to the Japanese a new book entitled “The Knife and Fork Diet”, claiming that eating with a knife and fork will help people lose weight.
