When I had just come off of my medications the one thing I had to work at was losing some of the weight I'd gained. It wasn't a great deal but it was enough to make me feel as though I should do a little about it in order to feel good about myself.
One of the things that I had heard people suggesting was Green Tea so when I was in Wal-Mart one day I saw a display for Green Tea gum. Well, I'm always willing to give gum a try. This gum is said to provide antioxidants which the body can always use and is a dietary supplement which I figured could be used as a weight reduction helper - in my mind if I was chewing gum I couldn't be soaking back cinammon buns or muffins which is what I'd suddenly found myself craving for.
I purchased a box - there are 12 pieces per box. Can I just say that the flava-flava is sort of not really there? It states it is a "delicious fresh mint flavor" and for the first 10 minutes or so yes, there is a pretty good taste but I found that the flavor left pretty quickly and I'm one who has to have a flavorful gum otherwise I will lose interest pretty quickly.
This gum is given the Good Housekeeping seal of approval and I am sure that as an antioxidant it may work just fine, however I lost interest in it after the 6th piece of gum in almost as many hours.
The package I had was also a little "stale" if gum can be classed as such. The "chicklets" were a little harder to chew than I would have liked - I don't mind my gum having some resistance but I don't think it should actually crumble before it becomes workable should it?
Overall, this was a product that I tried because I simply wanted to do something good for my body but it was one that I didn't stick with because for me, the flavor is important and this gum just didn't have the staying power I expected. For those who don't like a lot of flavor in their gum, it may be quite suitable but I'm a Cinnamon gum type individual and if it doesn't stay with me for awhile, it doesn't stay with me at all.
