Gum….

Did you know that if you chew 2 pieces of sugarless gum, a total of 11 calories, for 1 hour you’ve used up those 11 calories. This means I can chew all the gum I want because I keep gum so long it’s a tire before I spit it out. Cool, it works so well when I’m hungry. And since hungry is just my fat getting lonely I’ll trick it into thinking it’s getting something good. Every little bit helps when it’s 10:00 pm and almost time to go to bed but at 9:00 pm my tummy says it’s hungry. Water in, gum chewing and soon I’ll be in bed and it won’t matter.

Just thought you might like to know this. Chew gum for an hour, counts as zero.

A new week, new challenges, new victories, new friends. Here’s hoping it’s the great week possible.

Take care my friends and God Bless!!!

Somewhere, some Chunky monkey will read your gum chewing theory, stick a 36 pack of dentyne in their mouth, chew for 30 minutes, and repeat the process. With that 72 calories of exercise they will have half a donut !!
Awesome

I love this! I am always sticking a piece of sugarless gum into my mouth when I've got the munchies.
It's all I ever have in the house and my kids don't even know it's not the "real" stuff. They just recently got "Extra" here in my part of the world, and though it's more expensive than other brands, it will last hours!

I always think its funny on Biggest Loser when they say:

"Hey Bob, what do I do when I am at work and someone brings donuts in?"

Bob says "just keep gum in your pocket and you won't be tempted by the donuts!"

I still want the donuts :D

Have a great day!

I did not know this. The only concern I would have is that it seems gum sometimes makes me hungry.
