Engelberg explains that fast eating is a major cause of obesity because it takes the digestive system about 20 minutes to transmit a feeling of "fullness" to the brain. Nobesity, he says, has developed devices that attach between the teeth to keep reminding people to take smaller bites and chew at a slower rate.

It's a reason that I have always battled weight problems, even though I'm not that calorically challenged. If they offer trials I might sign up.

According to an Israeli company, the key to shedding the excess baggage is simple -- just eat less.

This scientific breakthru is earthshattering.:)

Interesting tact on attacking obesity for those who don't want to change what they eat no matter what. And great name for company in Nobesity.
