Chopsticks are cutlery for grasping food, they are mainly used in Asia and are traditionally used. They are also a decorative element. There are many different designs and you can easily find the right pair for you.
There are several advantages to eating with chopsticks :
Eating more slowly, for example, makes you feel full more quickly, which leads to eating less and therefore to a reduction in weight gain.
Eating with chopsticks would lead us to eat in small bites that we would chew less. This would reduce the rise in blood sugar levels and thus prevent chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes or obesity.
Chopsticks are also very practical, as you can grasp, turn, prick, untangle, mix, fish in hot water without burning yourself and remove food with great precision.
Eating with chopsticks is easier than you think:
1- Slide a first chopstick into the hollow between your thumb and forefinger and then place the front of the chopstick on the ring finger. This stick remains immobile.
2- Grasp the second stick between the index, middle and thumb, as if you were holding a pen. This stick is mobile.
3- Practise moving the upper stick to make a pinch movement with the lower stick, which is still immobile. Once you have captured the movement, try to grasp food and hold it long enough to bring it gently to your mouth.
And while there are indeed several things not to do when eating with chopsticks, (e.g. sticking chopsticks into food, pushing dishes or food with them, pointing at something or someone with the chopsticks...) they are specific to Japanese culture and it is up to each person to respect them or not.
