Table 2 Meal duration, ad libitum meal intake, and eating rate in the two experimental conditions (fast and slow)

From: Does eating slowly influence appetite and energy intake when water intake is controlled?

  Experimental condition 1 Number of subjects
Fast Slow Fast > Slow 2 Slow > Fast 3
Mean SEM Mean SEM n n
Duration of the meal (min) 8.4 0.6 26.1 1.8 * 0 30

  1. n = 30 females.
  2. 1 Statistical differences between conditions were determined by paired t-tests: * p < 0.05.
  3. 2 Number of subjects in which meal duration and intakes were higher in the fast condition than the slow.
  4. 3 Number of subjects in which meal duration and intakes were higher in the slow condition than the fast.
