When you are eating a meal, you should eat each bite slowly and chew it thoroughly. The reason for this is simple. The smaller the pieces of food are that enter the body, the easier it will be for the body to digest the food. Cramming large pieces of food down your throat will take longer for the digestion process to finish, often leading to stomach pain. Eating too quickly can also be just as detrimental as not chewing properly. Again, the body needs time for digestion, so a fast, steady flow of incoming food is a lot harder to digest than occasional, small pieces at regular intervals.
