Don’t miss these painless ways to add more fibre to your diet.
Yep, gum can be good for you! One study found that that chewing gum for at least 45 minutes can reduce appetite, increase fullness, and make you feel less hungry for snacks. Next time a craving strikes, whip out a stick of gum instead and see if it passes.
