The latest regulation PPKM (Enforcement of Restrictions on Community Activities) level 4 allows stalls to open and servedine in‘, but with strict health protocols and a maximum of only 20 minutes. Wow, you have to hurry, right?
It’s best not to rush. If it feels too short, then just reduce the portion to eat on the spot. The rest, take it home or eat elsewhere.
The most ideal is to take home alias ‘take away‘, but not everyone can do it for various reasons, such as job demands. The thing to remember is that interacting with many people while in public places can increase the risk of contracting COVID-19, especially when masks are not possible to wear while eating.
Whatever the condition, you should stay calm while eating. Stay focused, not while doing other activities including chatting, so you can use your time more efficiently. Experts warn that eating in a hurry can have a detrimental effect.
These include the following, as quoted from Livestrong.
1. Stomach ache
Eating too fast can trigger indigestion or indigestion, among others, marked by feeling bloated and uncomfortable in the stomach. Not impossible, can trigger gastric acid reflux or GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease).
2. Weight gain
It’s not necessarily, but in the long run, hasty eating habits are associated with the risk of weight gain. People who are more relaxed while eating tend to have lower levels of ghrelin, the hunger hormone.
3. Loss of hunger-full signal
Hunger and satiety are basically controlled by the brain. The connection between the stomach and the brain is susceptible to interference if you eat too often in a hurry.
4. Chronic disease
Various studies have linked the habit of eating too fast with the risk of high blood pressure or hypertension. A study by Dr. Takayuki Yamaji, a cardiologist from Hiroshima University, concluded that people who eat too fast are more prone to metabolic syndrome.
