A myth is an 'old wives' tale,' unsubstantiated, accepted beliefs.
Some studies proclaim to chew your food slowly and more then 27 times. True or false?
When people emerged from the shadows they hunted and gathered their food. There was never food in abundance. As faster they chewed and swallowed as more they could eat, because they did not know when their next food would be available. This means we have not been programmed by nature to eat slowly. We are programmed to gobble down our food. Civilisation has brought forward more refined table manners which means to eat slowly and savour the food we are eating.
Imagine the family sitting around the table eating dinner; everyone counts how many chews, no time for an interesting talk, or how was your day, no, everybody is busy chewing and counting; Who ever had this ridiculous idea?
Our ancestors would happily curl up, rest and sleep after their meal. Animals do not go for a walk after they have eaten; they rest.
It is programmed in us, once we have hunted, caught and eaten our food, we were tired and it was not necessary to go and hunt again, as our tummies were full.
Civilisation has changed our lifestyle, but after a good meal we still feel pleasantly tired to have a nap if possible.
