The Chopsticks Diet

Forget diet pills, long walks and starving yourself, just grab your shoes and head towards the supermarket to buy chopsticks, for the tapered sticks can help you lose weight.

That’s the conclusion of a new book. In The Chopsticks Diet by Kimiko Barber, she says that part of the reason for their elegant figures is their practice of using chopsticks. According to Barber, "Eating with chopsticks slows you down, and so you eat less."

Gobbling food makes a person overeat because it takes their brain 20 minutes to register what their stomach contains, reports the Telegraph.

When it comes to proper meals, eating with chopsticks also means taking smaller mouthfuls, which tend to get chewed better, slowing down the meal, and making it easier to digest.
