I have generally noticed that most of the people who eat slowly are (relatively) skinny. There is a scientific reason behind that: It takes upto 20 minutes for the stomach to realize its full and send a signal to the brain telling you to stop shoving your pie hole.
On a side note, (most of) the Asians are skinny.
I wonder if that is because culturally they always have (culturally) eaten with chopsticks, which only allows them to eat in small servings at a time. The amount of rice or meat you can eat with each iteration of a chopstick trip to your mouth is usually lesser than what you can shove with a fork or a spoon.
Did the Chopstick culture morph how a whole race looks as a whole?
