Mastication of almonds: effects of lipid bioaccessibility, appetite, and hormone response
Gosh I love this one. Can you imagine a room full of researchers just watching people chew?? But seriously, the implications of this one are huge. The mere act of chewing more, no change in the food or quantity you’re eating, increases the production of GLP-1, which is one of the newest and greatest diabetic drugs out (Byetta–the hila monster spit drug…). They stayed fuller longer and had better serum lipid responses. Talk about a very, very simple adjunct to everything else!
