Swallowing Gum for Weight Loss

Some people email a little while ago and asked me if they swallowed gum would it help them limit their appetite to achieve weight loss.

This was a very interesting question so I thought I would research on this topic a little and learned some very interesting things.

Gum while it may stay in your stomach for a longer time does not affect your appetite as many people thought it would if you swallowed a large amount. It could lead to problems with your digestive system though as it will slow it down and can lead to malnutrition.

Slowing the digestive process will only slow down your metabolism and have you gain weight instead of losing weight.

Most likely the gum will just be pasted through your stool and won't affect your body the least bit.

Swallowing gum does not work on controlling your appetite but chewing gum can help keep your mind off food and curve your hunger cravings a bit.

If you would like to learn more than go to my website top weight loss site where the information just keeps getting better.

Have a great day and God bless!

Here are 3 kick-butt bodyweight exercises you can do to burn fat,
stay energized, and avoid overeating.

Bodyweight exercises help you burn fat shockingly fast, without any
fancy equipment.

1) Any Single-Leg Exercise
The pistol (single-leg squat to the floor) is the most advanced
1-leg exercise. But you can also do assisted single-leg squats with
a band, or onto a bench, or even with a Stability Ball between your
back and the wall.

If you aren't ready for single-leg squats, you can use Bulgarian
Split Squats, Reverse Lunges, regular split squats, or lying 1-leg
hip bridges if you are a beginner.

2) Decline Push-ups
These are harder than normal pushups, thanks to your elevated feet.
And in this position, you can still use a close-grip to fatigue
your triceps, a "piked-hip position" to build your shoulders, or
even the Spiderman leg motion to work on your abs.

3) Bodyweight Inverted Rows
I choose these over chinups and pullups because bodyweight rows let
your chest rest, while your back is strengthened. It's the perfect
compliment to a pushup.

Do 8-12 repetitions per exercise. Don't rest between exercises. Go
through the circuit up to 3 times, resting 1 minute after each
circuit.

For a once-per-month challenge, do each exercise to failure in your
final round through the circuit.
