Chew Gum to Lose Weight

Who knew that blowing bubbles could help you shed pounds? Research has proven that people who chew sugar-free gum prior to lunch consume 68 fewer calories than those who don’t. Not to mention, opting for a low calorie stick of gum can satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping you away from calorie-packed desserts. Another bonus: studies have proven that people who chew gum burn 5% more calories than people who do not.[1]

Pick up a pack of sugar-free gum and pop in a piece before meals or anytime you feel a craving coming on. Try chewing only a half a stick at a time; over consumption of any artificial sweetener may cause stomach cramping or diarrhea.
