Eat fast, live large

posted by Jason Kottke   May 06, 2009

This chart plots time spent eating per day vs. the national obesity rate for several developed nations. If you’d asked me what the chart might look like before I viewed it, I would not have guessed that higher obesity rates correlate with shorter eating times. The US has the highest national obesity rate on the chart and are the third fastest eaters.
