Chew Gum To Avoid Snacking


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Whenever I go to the grocery store, I always put a piece of chewing gum in my mouth first. That way you have an excuse to avoid all those free samples that the store clerks are giving out. Food does not taste good after you have chewed peppermint gum. But make sure it is sugarless gum!

    I guess this would be useful for those who like to chew gum. Every since I was a child, I disliked chewing gum and never encouraged my girls to chew some too.
