Study 4 – Research Linking Rate of Intake to Excess Weight

Rei Otsuka, et al (2006) Eating Fast Leads to Obesity: Findings Based on Self-administrated Questionnaires among Middle-aged Japanese Men and Women. This paper presented eating rate data, based on a survey of 4,742 Japanese men and women spanning several years. The authors measured self-reported categorical rate of eating, current BMI, BMI at age 20, and BMI-change from age 20. Energy intake was assessed over a 1-month period with a brief diet history questionnaire. Results showed rapid intake of food was tied to obesity. J Epidemiology, 16 (3), 117-124.
