Open a pack of gum
University of Rhode Island researchers found that when adults chewed gum for a total of one hour in the morning, they felt significantly less hungry and ate 67 fewer calories at lunch. That number may seem small, but it makes a difference if you chew gum regularly. Choose fragrant peppermint gum, and you may quell hunger pangs even more. Always hungry? Here’s why you can’t stop eating.
