whowants to

build muscle

gain quality weight or

burn body fat

andis always looking for new techniques which can be used to obtain theabove mentioned, more efficiently and faster. It also aims to pointout the flaws of any previously used methods that such a person mayhave used in hope to obtain the same goals, since, sadly – theysometimes tend to be misleading or even, worse still,counterproductive.

Oneof the examples of such advice would be one provided in an issue ofFlexmagazine – which is a fitness and health magazine. Namely, thestudy claimed that the faster a person eats, the more body fat he orshe will gain due to the speed.

So,according to that very study, a person looking to build mass shouldeat the very same calorie-rich diet, but slower. While this is trueto a certain extent, there are critical flawsto the advice while taking into account the bigger picture. Namely,the problem isn't in the hastiness of one's downing of the calories,but much rather in its amount. What this means is that a person whoeats faster will gain more weight because he or she will eatmore food faster,instead of what is implied in the above mentioned: merely dueto the speed of intake.

It'spretty obvious that if a person eats more food, he or she will bedowning more calories, and, pretty obviously gaining more weight. Buttruth be told, that has no real connection to whether the personis eating fast or slow.

Certainly,most people could thing of at least one king-size person who is, onthe other hand, and ironically, a super-slow eater. So this would bejust another con-point down the mentioned advice's list.

Soto conclude, if a person is a fast eater, he or she may feel the urgeto eat bigger portions. And even if this may seem true for a number of people,the speed itself has nothing to do with the extra fat the person'sbody is suffering, but rather the fact that the impulses of no longerfeeling hunger reach the brain only after a certain time a body nolonger ought to feel hungry. Ultimately, it is not only how much andhow fast someone eats, but also what.
