Wrigley and the Biggest Loser believe that Chewing Gum is more than just a breath freshener…. and I agree!
I don’t know about all the scientific reasons listed in the article…. but for me I find that if my mouth is busy doing something then it isn’t going to be shoveling unhealthy and extra amounts of food into it. I find it most helpful when I am cooking. I am super guilty of being a ‘taste everything as you go along’ baker and cooker. Often times when I am done cooking a meal I am no longer hungry because I have snacked on so much of the meal while I was preparing it. So I find it super beneficial to grab a stick of gum while I am cooking.. that way I am not tempted to stick other food in. (I also have heard that taping your mouth shut during cooking has the same affect.. .haha).
