As a professional ballroom dancer, the blonde beauty is expected to have a super fit and stunning body. And we are sure, that her dancing work-out routine is responsible for giving her back a slender physique and flat tummy.
But even Julianne Hough gets sugar cravings, and we all know where that obsession can lead-----The facts show that the more sugar you eat, the more you want. So true!
So, how does the gorgeous gal-pal of American Idol's Ryan Seacrest put a halt to the cravings and hunger pangs??
With a stick of gum. Yep, that's right. Julianne Hough told Life & Style magazine this little dietary nugget:
"I can eat candy like Starburst and Skittles for days," she says. ""To conquer those cravings, I chew gum and drink water to fill me up."
Okay, we're not suggesting you go on a chewing gum and water diet to melt away the pounds, but Julianne makes an interesting and scientific point here.
You CAN lose weight by chewing gum:
Wrigley's gum has a group of researchers that look into the merits of chewing gum. The organization is called WSI, or the Wrigley Science Institute. Yeah, for real. And they conducted a study in 2007, that revealed some amazing things:
"Chewing gum significantly reduced caloric intake by 25 calories and specifically reduced sweet snack intake by 39 calories; salty snacks were decreased by 11 calories. Hunger and desire to eat were significantly suppressed by chewing gum at one, two and three hour intervals after lunch. Participants reported that chewing gum improved their mood by reducing anxiety and stress, and increasing contentment and relaxation."
Hey, we believe that chewing gum DOES cut cravings and helps you lose weight. We chew gum at night, to keep away the desire to indulge in a bad way.
