Can chewing a sugar-free gum help you lose weight? Sugar detox can help you lose weight, but I have never heard that a sugar-free gum is a legitimate weight loss aid. Can any sugar-free gum help you drop the pounds or do you need to use a particular brand? I guess any sugar-free gum will do, assuming you believe the claims. Personally, I am not convinced, far from it. But a sugar-free gum is a sugar-free gum, right? The ad above, for example, claims that “chewing Extra sugar-free gum can help you reduce snack cravings. So to help reach your goals, start by reaching for a stick,” the ad says.
And, as you can see, the ad also seems to suggest that chewing a sugar-free gum can help you look better in a bikini. “Here’s one piece that’ll help get you in your two-piece,” the ad says. So what do we make of this? Well, thus far we have seen the Dole Banana Diet and the Drive-Thru Diet to nowhere make similar claims. What is next? Drink corn syrup and lose weight? Let’s hope not.
