Sugar Cravings? Confessions of a Gum Addict

May 30, 2013 1 min read

Everyone goes through sugar cravings, especially those trying to diet and a lot of people turn to gum to cure their sugar cravings. Craving a cinnamon bun? Have a piece of gum. Apple pie? Gum. Chocolate cake? Perhaps some more gum? Too many of us are closet gum addicts. We use this chewy treat to try to curb appetite and control sugar cravings and nicotine cravings. Short term solution, long term problem. Chewing the cud is one of the number one causes of digestive distress. That’s right. If you’re an avid gum smacker whose suffering the bloated blues, look no further than your Trident. Chewing gum causes you to swallow air, and swallowing air makes you gassy. Don't even think, sugarless gum will save your stomach. According to gastroenterologist Seth Sweetser, M.D., "The artificial sweeteners mannitol, sorbitol and xylitol are not digested, which can lead to bloating as well as stomach upset and diarrhea." Gross.

Instead of gum...
