    Pretty sure it doesn't burn calories. However, I find if I'm tempted to go eat a cookie because I'm bored or want something sweet, popping a piece of gum can curb that craving.

    The chewing gum = burning calories thing, is a load of rubbish.

    Chewing gum actually signals to your body you are expecting food, so can make you hungry as it starts the salivation process.

    Don't agree with chewing gum making you hungry - i don't think it burns calories but it takes your mind off of eating IMO.
