lol yes odd title. So I am in decent physical condition, 5’ 11’’ 160 mostly muscle. Well I have been chewing a lot of gum, like a pack a day everyday for a few months now to ween off smoking (now I just smoke and chew gum lol).
A couple girls I knew have told me my face is looking somewhat round. I never thought of myself to have a round face, I have the cheekbones of that Twillight vampire character, however I feel my face may be getting rounder after staring in the mirror like a bulimic girl. Okay so yea, think it has anything to due with the extreme amounts of gum I chew? Is this why baseball players faces are somewhat round due to chewing gum?
Unique question. I don’t think its due to chewing gum. Actually chewing gums helps to increase the strength of your teeth and I have heard that it also helps in digestion. But seek some professional advice about this.
Ah damn I knew it was true and bound to happen! Well hmm so it makes my teeth (i think you mean muscles) strong, so that means the muscles in in my jaw and near the back of my teeth are getting bigger. Hence making my face rounder? Guys, I think were onto something here. Something big…
My thoughts on chewing gum are generally pretty negative. It’s a nasty habit, it just looks unpleasant to me (and I think people look stupid doing it, like ruminants). This is not to mention the noises some people make. The worst thing by far, though, is what so many “people” do with it afterwards - stick it to something or spit it onto the street, where it leaves a horrible blotch.
The only way chewing gum might help with digestion is if you’re constipated, as it has a laxative effect.
Ruminatnts immediately made me think of cud-chewing hoofed mammals and blonde girls who make bubbles with their gum. I am nice though, I don’t stick it to anything, I always dispose of it in a proper way, unless I’m driving down the road at night then I totally hawk it out my window going 60mph.
Gum increases blood flow to the brain and make your “teeth” strong as another user pointed out. Apparently there might be a downside and make your face round, so it has it’s pros and cons.
Well I chew gum pretty much around the clock. Sometimes I even fall asleep with gum in my mouth. Here’s an analogy, chewing gum around the clock would be like body building where repetition makes your muscles big and only somewhat strong, but if you had something tough to chew where it required a lot more biting power then it’d make your muscles strong but not as big. Think this holds true with jaw muscles?
I’m decently addicted to gum at this point and based on research I believe it has small health benefits, although I am not a total health freak. I’m wondering if it’s the gum because it seems most plausible, I wonder if my jaw muscles can get that big without me knowing it.
Hmmm I’m thinking of posting pictures of myself dated 4 months ago, however I would need to take a photo of myself as of recent, gotta find my camera today or buy one real soon.
If I knew for sure it’s the gum, then I will perhaps cut back but I don’t want to stop chewing gum only to find out it’s related to something else, such as the increase of wine I drink (1 bottle a day, hell I’m drinking wine right now and it’s 9:41am).
If I could compare chewing gum to body building vs. strength training, lifting small amounts of weight lots of time makes your muscles big, as opposed to heavy weights lesser times make your muscles tone and not as big. Therefore I can draw the assumption if I found a type of gum that is tougher to chew or something of the sort it would make my jawbones even sexier, wouldn’t you think?
edit: it’s not really a big deal to me, but I’d like to find out why so I can stay sexy and become sexier.
