The act of chewing gum burns 11 calories per hour, and since one stick of gum provides about 10 calories, I guess it’s a wash. But you might be thinking about a study published in Appetite in 2007, which found that chewing gum before a mid-afternoon snack helped people to eat less. Both regular and sugar-free chewing gum had the same effect.
