If you want to prevent belly bloating, spit your gum out. When you chew gum you are swallowing air, which in turn causes bloating. Instead, try sucking on a piece of hard candy, or take the healthy approach and drink green tea; it helps with weight loss, lowers risk of type 2 diabetes, can prevent the signs of aging and may also help improve brain function.
