If You Are Craving Something Sweet...

Equal gum makes three flavors, Key Lime Pie, Strawberry Shortcake and Mint chocolate chip and they are great. If you want dessert, pop a piece of one of these flavors in your mouth and the craving will disappear. My fave is the key lime pie, yummy! And it lasts a long time too, by the time the flavor goes away you will be not feeling hungry anymore.

    I haven't tries these yet, but I will. I do agree that chewing gum takes away the craving for something to eat or just that feeling of wants to chew/snack on something. Great tip!

    I've tried this before (chewing sugar free gum to beat cravings), but I have to admit sometimes chewing gum just makes me want to chew more!

    This sounds like a good idea to help curb cravings.

    Any sugarless gum works for me. I also like to have a piece of gum going when I run to prevent my mouth from drying out. emoticon

    I also like Strides Uber Bubble gum. long lasting flavor. I was surprised I liked the Mint choco chip but hated the strawberry shortcake . The key lime was not too bad

    I did not like the taste of any of them, but I do chew sugar free bubble gum to help beat cravings.

    The strawberry shortcake has a funny after taste and I did NOT like the mint chocolate chip one. Don't like Key Lime Pie regularly so haven't tried the gum.
