Chewing Gum To Lose Weight? featured image

On January 15, 2007 Fox News reported that British scientists had been given funding to develop a treatment to help clinically obese patients eat less. They are working on an appetite-suppressing chewing gum that would continuously release a hormone, pancreatic polypeptide, which is naturally released from the small intestine as food is consumed, signaling to the brain that the body has had enough food.

In addition, last year, results published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that people chewing sugar-free gum could burn off a considerable amount of weight each year. I’m sure if you are chewing gum all day long, you’ll be doing less eating. Despite the potential for getting close to your ideal bikini weight, my advice is to evaluate carefully the pros and cons of chewing gum all day. You need to consider the potential damage chewing gum all day may do to your teeth and muscles of mastication. So be sure to ask your dentist for advice before embarking upon this possible new fad to reduce weight.
