The Doctors: Counting Bites To Lose Weight
The Doctors medical team is always on top of the latest diet and wellness trends, and this time they tackled something we do each day: chewing. Could counting the number of bites you eat help you in your weight loss goals?
The Drs TV: Bite Counter Watch Review
Dr. Travis Stork discussed the Bite Counter Watch, a wristwatch you can wear to track your consumption at meals. Just turn it on before you start your meal, and when you are finished, the watch will total up how many bites you took, as well as how many calories you took in.
The Bite Counter Watch from Bite Technologies may be a helpful weight loss tool, but it comes at a price. According to the company’s website, the cost of one watch is $799, and that could be too much for many dieters. I would not pay that much; I think I’d rather spent that kind of money on a gym membership, exercise classes, or fresh, healthy food to cook at home.
The Doctors: How Many Bites Do You Take Per Day?
According to research, the average bite contains about 15 calories. Further data suggests that humans only need 100 bites per day to get the food they need. But The Doctors team wanted to know more before sharing their own evaluations of the gadget.
Dr. Jennifer Ashton suggested a feature: maybe the watch should shock you when you have eaten too much. But could there be another way of looking at this? Dr. Stork wanted to know how many times we need to be chewing each bite.
The Drs TV: How Many Times Do You Chew Each Bite?
The reason behind this is that the more you chew each bite, the fewer bites you will take. In his own experiment, Dr. Travis said that he averages about 25 chews for each bite he takes. But that number is going to vary from person to person.
At your next meal, try counting how many times you chew each bite. If nothing else, it should help you see your eating habits in a new way.
