  • Don't worry most people burn more than 1 calorie a minute- more if you are standing and walking slowly. So you'll likely have burnned off the calories by time you have spit it out. Studies have shown that sugar-free gum can reduce calorie intake so 5 calories may save you 100. - by SNOBUNNYCAROL
