Do I need to chew slowly?

Chewing slowly and well in a relaxed way is the ideal method. But rather concentrate on chewing WELL even if you have a problem in chewing slowly. We do not recommend the general advice of counting the number of chews for every mouthful. This can be tiring, tedious and stressful rather than relaxing and, besides all that, every mouthful, type of food and amount of food may require a different number of chews, which is also very dependent on the condition of your teeth. So forget all that – chew in a relaxed way until each mouthful is chewed to the last and then allow the tongue to send it on its way.
