Using a Pocket Apex Filofax for August

Yesterday my mate Martha mentioned that she was possibly going to buy a new organiser in the pocket size.  This forced me to think how I should get my finger out and make a new Filofax video to put on Youtube that my followers on there have been asking for me to create.

I finally made the new one last night and uploaded it directly.

Unfortunately the quality of it isn't very good as Youtube at the moment is having problems with it's uploading.

Burn Extra Calories By Chewing Gum

University of Rhode Island researchers have found that chewing sugar-free gum reduces the amount you eat and speeds up your metabolism.

A separate study published in the journal Appetite found that gum-chewers ate 36% fewer calories each time they snacked because their appetite had been sated. Chewing gum burns eleven extra calories per hour. That’s 19% more calories than just sitting in front of your computer screen.

While that doesn’t sound like a lot, if you chew for four hours daily it adds up to 4.5lbs per year. And that’s without counting the calorie savings from the snacks you're not eating.
