Did you know that your fast-eating friend can also influence your own eating habits? A study published in the journal PLoS ONE found that diners who eat fast can influence their dining partner’s eating pace, to the point where they even take bites at the same time as them.

The worst part about scarfing down food is that it also leads to weight
gain. It takes about 20 minutes for your body to register hunger, meaning
you risk overeating whenever by eating faster. To avoid this, take a sip of water after every bite as it'll help you feel fuller, faster.
