Do You Chew Or Swallow Your ‘swallow’ Meals? by ibkayee(f): 12:34pm On Jun 10
I used to chew it until I found out you’re supposed to just swallow it

Edit:
Didn’t phrase my question clearly.
I mean ‘swallows’ like pounded yam, amala, semolina etc.

I still chew it, especially pounded yam and white soup with plenty goat meat. But i eat with a spoon, never my hand.

I chew but I eat fast. I try to remind myself when I eat to slow down, take my time and not eat like a goat. You're supposed to chew food an average of 32 times before swallowing - b|c it takes that many times to break them down. Of course, soft, water-filled, non-solid food can require less chews, like watermelon, while others can require up to 40 chews, like nuts and hard meat.

Sure, if it's food you swallow: poundo, amala, etc. But other than that you're supposed to chew food. Who told you this, Ib? smiley

Wow I didn’t know there were technicalities to chewing. Asides my swallow meals, I’ll definitely bear it in mind for everything else. I’m also a fast eater embarassed cheesy

Haha sorry I’ve confused you, I meant only foods categorised as ‘swallow’ e.g poundo, amala etc. I chew everything else e.g. the meat etc lol

Well, yes, there are. But lol, who's counting while chewing, tho? Most of us don't, however, it's def. good to keep in mind b|c it aids digestion and prevents overeating - you feel fuller longer when you eat slowly than fast. French people eat slowly, which is one of the reasons not many of them are obese, compared to America's colossal 34%. They live longer and have lower death rates too. While there are definitely other factors behind these, I think their eating habits play a huge role.

Lol, that makes sense. I was thinking, 'Ahhnn ahnn, how can I just be swallowing anything w/o chewing?'. shocked grin
Just imagine how many people would be flooding the ER if that were the case.

How is it even possible to swallow food directly without grinding it properly first?

I chew in order to avoid swallowing stones in meals like Garri.
Re: Do You Chew Or Swallow Your ‘swallow’ Meals? by InspireWealthB: 11:04pm On Jun 11
I can't remember ever chewing such meals. I have always swallowed them directly.

It would have been different though if I ate them with spoons

Hmm..The thought or picture of one chewing swallows (garri, pounded yam, semo ,wheat, ) etc looks like you watching a dog eat swallows... Disgusting Huh? Swallows are to be swallowed without fear nor favour.. That can only be decent enough.
