In an editorial that accompanied the study, Australian researchers Elizabeth Denney-Wilson and Karen Campbell said the results were an example of how eating trends nowadays have a part in today's obesity epidemic. They advised that parents should encourage their children to eat slowly and allow them to stop if they're full. Another scientist, Ian McDonald from the University of Nottingham in England, told the BBC that your gastric feedback doesn't have a chance to start developing in time, if you fill your stomach up by eating fast. In other words, downing your food hinders the signals your body creates telling your brain enough is enough. It just goes to show that the old days—when super-size meals didn't exist and people took the time to eat—could teach us a lesson or two at the dinner table.
