Does Chewing Mint Gum Help You Lose Weight?
Sad news from the world of “If I do this, I’ll lose weight immediately!”
I’ve always heard chewing gum can help curb your appetite….and if it’s peppermint, even better, as it also has been touted as an appetite suppressant.
Enter: A study from the University at Buffalo.
Apparently, those who chewed mint-flavored gum experienced some kind of distaste for fruits and veggies, and wanted to reach for chips and candy instead.
On the plus side, we’ve all had minty-fresh breath all these years!
(Always trying to find the silver lining, ya see…)
