If you have "no place to go," come here!

Don't wolf your food!

It's healthier to eat slowly.

Also, more pleasurable (assuming the food is good to taste).

"For ages, mothers have admonished children at the dinner table to slow down and chew their food. Apparently, they’re onto something." There's a phrase for that: Teach your grandmother to suck eggs.

Also, the classic "experts say" at the end.

Re your "more pleasurable": Pleasure is a good guide to whether we're doing something right. It's a crying shame that it's confused with hedonism and decadence.

The typical Chinese phrase maan6 maan6*2 sik6 in Cantonese, which means idiomatically "Enjoy your meal," translates literally as "Eat slowly."

Not bad advice, really.
