The “recommended” amount of chewing each bite of food should be around 30 times BEFORE you swallow. The resultant mush in your mouth now has lots of pre-digestion enzymes (ptyalin) which in turn will allow the regular digestion in your stomach to do its job without pain and/or bloating. Try it, you will be surprised at how full you will feel as well. You will be eating so much less because you are now taking the time to slow down your eating. Two benefits in one!
