    Is that assuming you eat the gum?

    I think you intake sugar when you chew it, dont you?

    Or how long do you have to chew it to get to five calories? Dude, you just blew my mind, man.

    Yeah, I'm sure you do. But I'm wondering if 5 calories is what I'm getting out of chewing gum, or if I'd have to swallow it. And who does that?

    You know celerys a negative calorie food. It takes more energy to digest it then you get out of eating celery. If you were locked in a room with celery you'd starve. :eek:

    You don't digest the gum if you do swallow it...it just has a vacation through your digestive system...

    The 5 calories are probably spent by the time the gum tastes like a piece of plastic.

    They need to make a gum that tastes like food. Then I could chew it all day and not gain weight.
