I'm a fast eater. I've tried to become one of those people that takes more than ten seconds to eat a slice of pizza, but I’m still usually done before my friends have even made a dent. I need to slow down, though, and not just for my own peace of mind. A 2010 study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that people who were given identical meals released more hormones that made them feel full when they ate the meal in 30 minutes rather than five. That was enough to make me at least want to try to slow down, and maybe appreciate one or two of my daily meals.

But it's annoying to be so conscious of how you eat all the time. There are gadgets that passively monitor everything that happens when you exercise, but there aren't many that do the same with food. Apps like MyFitnessPal and LoseIt! rule dieting, but tracking everything you eat is just as much a burden as it is a perk. Unlike fitness tracking, which the FitBit Force and other devices do passively, inputting food data isn't mindless enough to be convenient or enjoyable.
