Did you know that the Filipino tradition known as “pagkakamay” or eating using bare hands instead of utensils benefits your whole body?
Here are some of the health benefits you can have if you adopt “pagkakamay”:
– Makes You Stay Lean
Researchers concluded that eating with your hand will encourage a sense of fullness and satiety as compared to eating with utensils.
– Improves Your Digestion
The body has a bacteria called normal flora, and it is found on the palm and fingers of the hand. When you eat with your hands, the flora in the fingers is swallowed, making it beneficial for health and for various body parts such as the mouth, throat, and intestine, and it promotes healthy digestion in the gut.
– Prevents Overeating At Restaurants
The researchers discovered that middle-aged women who ate out and used their hands to pick on appetizers and dry food entrees at least three times a week appear to be more aware of their eating habits.
