The same habit can also look at the quantity of food we have eaten.
Eating food with hands is way more hygienic than we eat from spoon due to two reasons. Firstly, we thoroughly wash our hands before eating which removes the germs and dirt. Secondly, we can sense the quality of food served before eating which is not possible when we use spoons or forks.
The food you eat has stored energy in it. Hence, when you eat with your hand, your body’s energy comes in direct contact with the food you are eating. Thereby, boosting the existing energy level in your body. While you are eating with fork or spoon, the level of energy which attracts the body become less.
