Secrets of Success

Chew Gum



A friend recommended that I chew sugar-free gum while cooking to keep from snacking during meal preparation. I have used that idea then and also when cleaning up after the meal and putting food away. I also chew gum when I am having a sweet craving after dinner. It cuts out the calories that I don't really want.

  • Such a great tip! I always 'test' dinner whilst cooking which does go a little too far sometimes. I am off to buy some gum! emoticon - by HAYZ_C
