Guys with chiseled jawlines are bodybuilders, right? But why would lifting weights increase the muscles in your jaw. I mean, it might. I don't know.
But I recently watched a video on Youtube talking about simple exercises for the purpose of improving looks. This makes absolute since to me. Why would I want huge muscles? So I can break into the furniture moving industry? Yes, I want to be healthy, but beyond that it's just for looks. And what good is a chiseled jawline for other than looks? In his list, this youtuber said to chew gum if you want a chiseled jaw. It's stupid obvious if you think about it.
Is it unhealthy?
No. It might actually be good for your teeth. And extra jaw muscles don't seem to have a drawback.
Is it expensive?
No. Name brand gum costs about 5¢. I can chew a five pack for a quarter. And a pack a day seems like enough. And it's not like I'm getting no other value than the muscle gains. It's a zero calorie treat.
So a few weeks ago I went for it. It was harder than I thought. Chewing one piece was fine. But the second was harder, and the third piece in a day would give me a headache. So I took it slow, and worked my way up. I chew a pack in a day now, but my jaw is sore at the end of the last couple.
And my jawline? I can't say I would be able to notice that about myself. Maybe I should have taken before and after photos. But I can say my double chin has noticeably reduced since I started. In fact, it's pretty much gone. Part of that might be that I've lost about a pound a week from eating less. But I think this is a factor, and a good habit to have.
