Ok here is one I have thought about alot lately. It is now known that foods with high GI (Glycemic Index) are not good. They digest too fast and spike your systems, causing highs and lows. it seems foods with low GI’s are less processed than foods with high GI. Whole grains have more of the fiber in tact so they digest slower than processed grains with all the outer good stuff gone or milled up. I consider chewing food as another proccesing station before it hits your stomach. The old thing my parents taught me was to Chew Your Food! this was probably so I didn’t choke on it while inhaling it but wouldn’t it make sense to not chew your food? The bigger the chunks I put in my belly should digest slower as there is less surface area (what a scientific breakthrough). like for example granular sugar will dizzolve slower in water that powdered sugar, and sugar cubes even slower. So by not milling my food into a sticky mush before swallowing it am I making the effect on GI better? … Just a thought.
maybee in 20 years parents will tell their kids, Don’t Chew Your Food!
