Chewing gum cuts calorie intake, cravings for sweetsApril 20th, 2009 - 3:24 pm ICT by IANS
Washington, April 20 (IANS) A sugar-free chewing gum can potentially control appetite, cut calorie intake and reduce cravings for sweets, according to new research.
In a study conducted by the Pennington Biomedical Research Centre (PBRS) and Louisiana State University (LSU), chewing gum helped participants suppress hunger and their craving for sweets between lunch and an afternoon snack.
Participants reported that their energy levels were maintained between lunch and an afternoon snack, and were significantly less drowsy as compared to when they did not chew gum during this same time.
Nutritionists report that even small changes in caloric intake can have a significant impact in the long term. This research study supports the role of chewing sugar-free gum as an easy, practical tool for helping to manage snack intake and reduce cravings for sweet snacks.
