More than a third of middle-aged Kiwi women are speedy eaters, and that tendency to scoff could be leading to increased weight gain, Otago University researchers say.

The advice "eat slowly, eat less" has been around for decades but, unlike many dieting myths, this one seems to hold water.

Researchers led by Caroline Horwath have studied the relationship between speedy eating and body mass index in more than 1500 New Zealand women aged between 40 and 50.

"I often encourage both women and men to eat away from distractions like the TV or computer, and put down your knife and fork between mouthfuls."

Other tips for slow eating included concentrating on the flavour and texture of food, eating with chopsticks, eating spicy foods, and having a conversation over the meal.

The Otago researchers have been following up the women in the study to see if the speed-eaters have been gaining more weight over time.

Phil Goff says he will lead the Labour Party into the election and anyone suggesting otherwise is flogging a dead horse.

Mr Goff is facing renewed speculation about his position, following recent poor polls and reports that a meeting of Labour's front bench discussed the leadership.

直近の調査でも、党の代表がゴフ氏である限り労働党は支持率を上げることがないこ とが明白になっても、彼が今回の選挙をリーダーとして戦うことを明言しています。彼の、(目が一切笑っていない)物腰やわらかな話し方に飽きてきた有権者 も少なくないので、もしかするといま交代すると、と思わずにはいられません。ただ、現在の労働党には、彼以外に政治的センスに長けた人物がいないのも事実 で、若い世代の登用など、良い意味での改革が必要かもしれません。
