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...)

Happy Friday!
