The authors reflect on research which looked at whether eating quickly and eating until full lead to weight gain. They suggest that the research indicates that the two eating behaviors increase the risk of becoming overweight. They argue that clinicians should recognize that behavioral counseling or using cognitive therapy can help in the management of the eat until full and eat fast environment with both children and adults.
