Is it ok to have an endless amount of chewing gum while on a diet?Really takes care of the cravings.

Depends which way you look at it


Am, I did this once, for months I ate chewing gum in between meals, I was only 15 and actually not trying to lose weight, just trying to stop eating sweets. I ended up doing it so much that I couldn't eat full meals any more and had to be brought to the doctor. He said I had basically suppressed my appetite so much that the capacity of it had shrunk, you swallow a lot of air chewing it and keeps your digestive acids working and this had made me eat a lot less, couldn't stomach a full dinner by the end of it.
