Wanna eat fast? Try eating while standing

Students from the Henan Shangqiu County High School in China have to eat their lunch while standing — there are no chairs in the cafeteria. This new rule has been enforced by the school to shorten the students’ eating time so that they have more time to study.

One of the students said that it normally would take him 20 minutes to finish lunch, but now it only takes him 10 minutes.

Some health officials said that quick eating is not good for digestion, stressing the importance of having time to chew food while eating.
