Chewing gum as a weight loss tool

Chewing gum has been suggested as a simple tool to help us reduce food cravings and eat less, ultimately helping with weight loss. More so, one may think there is no harm in chewing a piece of sugar-free gum, since there is no sugar to damage our teeth. However, a label of "sugar free" should not automatically be taken to mean "safe for our teeth". I wonder if you agree with this opinion...any reasons?

while yes it can be use to stop food cravings I do not think it is good for your teeth at all as they use the same garbage like the stuff you use in tea or coffee that they say can lead to cancer so yes as they say at your own risk

Yes its true. In fact there is a company, I think it is called Wriggles or some like that, that wants their chewing gums kept and classified with energy drinks...all because they have added caffeine...If you like it, then there you are.
