The relationship of eating until 80% full with types and energy values of food consumed.
Sommaire de l'article
Eating until one is 80% full is considered a healthy dietary practice in Japan. This study examined the relationship between this behavior and energy intake and types and quantities of foods consumed to examine its beneficial effects.
This study relied on dietary records and self-administered questionnaires completed by 330 users of a health-management website in November 2012. ANOVA was performed to examine the relationship between eating until one is 80% full and intake.
Men who always ate until they were 80% full consumed less energy than those who did not (mean [SD]; always: 1997.3 [356.7] kcal; rarely/never: 2448.9 [637.1] kcal; p<0.05). Moreover, men who ate until they were 80% full consumed fewer servings of grain dishes (always: 3.7 [0.9] servings; rarely/never: 5.1 [1.9] servings; p<0.05) and more servings of vegetable dishes (always: 5.9 [2.2] servings; rarely/never: 4.0 [2.3] servings, p<0.05) than those who did not.
Men who ate until they were 80% full consumed less energy and more vegetable dishes than those who did not, suggesting that eating until one is 80% full is associated with healthy dietary habits among men.
