4 doctors agree
In brief: The odds are no
The average stick of gum contains about 5 calories, (one can of coke has about 200) so unless you are eating 20 sticks a day, you end up burning those calories chewing gum long enough.

True. Just want to add that sugared gum is bad for your teeth though.

In brief: Not likely
You would really have to chew a lot of gum to get a lot of calories into your system to gain weight, but the added sugar is really harsh on your teeth.
I guess you really could gain weight but it would be difficult.
