Eating slowly equals eating less

Experiment: 30 women
Eating quickly 646 calories consumed
Eating slowly 579 calories consumed
646/579= 1.11 (11% more calories consumed when eating quickly); read details in link below:

It is kind of funny, in real life If I eat quickly I usually ask for "a little bit more" and I am served 50 t0 70 % more food (At my mother's house I was served 80 to 100% more) and guess what? once the food was on the plate it disappeared.

We are simply not trained to eat slowly or to leave food on the plate.
