According to Mark S. Gold, M.D., of the McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida, "It can take 12 minutes or longer for the signal that you've started to eat to make its way to your brain." Because of this you can end up eating more than you should before you actually register "fullness." Chew slowly, or go out to eat with friends - you'll be too busy talking to scarf your food.
