If You Want to Lose Weight, It’s as Easy as . . . Walking and Chewing Gum?
Hopefully you’ve mastered the lost art of walking and chewing gum at the same time.
According to a new study out of Japan, if you want to LOSE WEIGHT, it could be as easy as chewing gum while you walk.
The researchers found that when people combined walking and chewing gum, their heart rates were higher, they used more energy . . . and lost more weight than if they just walked without gum.
So what’s the explanation? They’re not 100% sure, but they think it could be connected to something called “cardio-locomotor synchronization.”
That’s where your heartbeat syncs up with a repetitive movement . . . so by chewing gum, you get your heart up into the cardio zone and keep it there.
Two People Are Suing McDonald’s For Not Giving Discounts on Quarter Pounders Without Cheese
If you order a Quarter Pounder with Cheese at McDonald’s, you’ll pay for the sandwich . . . let’s say it’ll run you $4. And if you order the Quarter Pounder WITHOUT cheese, it’ll cost you . . . the same $4.
And two people in Fort Lauderdale, Florida think that’s unfair . . . and maybe even illegal. A woman named Cynthia Kissner and a guy named Leonard Werner filed a class-action lawsuit against McDonald’s earlier this month.
And they’re claiming that McDonald’s is cheating all of us by not knocking anything off the price if we order a Quarter Pounder without cheese.
Their argument boils down to something pretty simple: A hamburger costs less at McDonald’s than a cheeseburger, so, clearly, the cheese has SOME monetary value. So why wouldn’t you get a discount if you have them hold the cheese?
They’re looking for at least $5 million in damages.
