Chewing Gum & Fork

Chew sugarless gum! 

British researchers did an experiment in which some subjects chomped on sugarless gum for 15 minutes per hour, and some didn't. The gum smackers consumed 36 fewer calories, on average, when working their way through a snack table three hours later. Chew gum at the stove, too. You'll be less likely to taste-test along the way. So let's get gum and loose some weight!

you need it most.
