Weightology Weekly Classics: Eating Speed Edition

It's commonly recommended that people should eat more slowly if they want to eat less.  The idea is that, if you eat more slowly, you'll give your digestive system more time to signal your brain that you're full.  To accomplish this, people will say that you should chew food more slowly, take more chews per bite, and put down your fork between bites.  But does this really work?  In this series of Weightology Weekly Classics, I look at some of the research in this area, and provide some guidelines as to whether eating more slowly can really help you eat less.
