One of these studies, conducted in Japan, even covers a population of 56,865 participants. Eating speed is significantly and positively correlated with the risk of metabolic syndrome.

In 2017, another publication looked at the evolution of populations of 1,083 individuals over 5 years. At the age of 50, at the end of their studies, the participants were 50 years old.

• Fast eater: 11.6% were at risk of metabolic syndrome
• Moderately fast eaters: 6.5% were at risk of metabolic syndrome
• Slow Eaters: 2.3% were at Risk of Metabolic Syndrome

In 5 years, from 50 years to 55 years, proportion of people who are at risk of metabolic syndrome.
