Losing weight with chewing gum does not work

  1. Losing kilos by chewing a chewing gum. According to some, the only correct way to slim down. Many people have tried this method. Because who doesn't want to be slim and sleek? Overweight people in particular have often tried everything. To what extent does chewing gum help you lose weight?

Sugar-free chewing gum

  1. It has been sold well for years: sugar-free chewing gum. According to some, the only way to lose weight permanently. Women in particular pass this method on to each other: you lose weight from sugar-free chewing gum. Sugar-free gum is sweetened with a sweetener such as sorbitol or xylitol. Chewing gum with sugar is still very little for sale: only the so-called children's chewing gum (bubble gum, gumballs) contains sugar. The sugar-free gum is used for weight loss.

The idea behind losing weight with chewing gum

  1. Chewing gum for weight loss is used in various ways. First, there are those who want to suppress the feeling of hunger by chewing gum. Attempts are made to postpone a meal or not to reach for snacks, pretzels or sweets. Whoever has gum in his mouth will not put other things in his mouth. Because you don't swallow chewing gum. In addition, it is thought that the body is fooled with the help of chewing gum. By chewing, the body would think it is ingesting food while nothing is being swallowed.

Chewing gum makes you more hungry

  1. However, the opposite is true. Chewing gum actually makes you feel more hungry. People who chew gum a lot may eat less often, but eat larger portions. Ultimately, the gum user will consume more calories than people who do not use gum. Postponing meals also makes you more hungry. As a result of which much more is eaten.

Burn calories with chewing

  1. However, chewing gum also has an advantage: you burn calories with it. On average 11 calories per hour. Then vigorous chewing movements must be made. Who chews gum daily for 10 hours, therefore burns more than 110 extra calories per day. It is not much and you have to chew a lot every day, but you would think that every little bit helps. It is easier to eat 110 calories less every day. That saves tired and sore jaws.

Be careful with sweeteners

  1. Sugar-free chewing gum is sweetened with sweeteners. On the one hand, this has a useful effect: the sweeteners give a bad taste to other foods. People who chew gum do not find the food they eat afterwards attractive and will therefore hardly want to eat it. However, the unpleasant taste has quickly disappeared and you cannot ignore hunger. The sweeteners in the sugar-free chewing gum also have another effect: it has a laxative effect. Especially the sweetener sorbitol is known for this. Xylitol also has this effect. In addition, the sweeteners cause the production of gases when broken down in the intestines, resulting in flatulence.

Some tips

  1. If you want to use chewing gum, it is therefore better to choose sugar-free chewing gum. Do not eat too much of this: the sweeteners have a laxative effect and cause flatulence and intestinal cramps. Chewing gum does not work to lose weight, so do not use it specifically as a waste product. Eating less and exercising more has a much more beneficial effect. Be careful when chewing gum in public or at work / school. Not everyone likes to look into an open mouth or hear the sounds. Chewing gum is often seen as anti-social: it comes across as cheeky. Especially in the business world, chewing is not done. In addition, it often also stands out: chewing movements attract the attention of others. The comparison with a ruminating cow is sometimes made quickly. If you want to chew a lot of gum, do it in your spare time or unnoticed in public. Do not spit gum on the street: this is very difficult to remove and can leave ugly spots in public. In addition, others suffer from this when it gets stuck under the shoe or on a dog's paw.
