    Out of Ketosis ? chewing gum

    I'm not a dieting cheat but wouldn't give myself a 10/10

    I'm probably a 9.5 as I have been known to sneak a taste of cheese every now and again. That said, I've hardly lost anything this last couple of weeks and couldn't think why.

    I've never checked whether I'm in ketosis for weeks as I always was strongly in ketosis. I checked this morning (before any shakes etc) and I'm not in ketosis.

    The only thing I've done different is binged on chewing gum. I've had the odd piece here and there for a few weeks but recently have been feeling a bit hungry so thought I'd just have some water and a bit of chewing gum. It got worse, so much so, that I've been having a pack a day. there are 9 bits in Trident splash and 14 in Trident soft. I've eaten all of them, about 6 packs a week for the last couple of weeks. How mad is that?

    I think they are addictive and make you hungry - i think I've been staving off hunger with the thing thats made me hungry in the first place.

    What do the wise people on here think?

    I cant comment on the effect of chewing gum on weightloss but i do know that chewing it makes me so hungry i could eat my own arm off. I've had the occasional piece of Wrigleys Extra over the past 2 weeks because of the constant manky taste in my mouth but I guess it would only be about half a pack in total.

    Sorry, not much help am i? x

    I can't comment on whether it affects weight loss but it def makes me hungry so I stick to Gold Spot mouthspray to fight off the ugly mouth odours

    Could you try a week without the chewing gum to see if it makes any difference to your losses? and whether you get back into ketosis?

    Good luck - you trident addict

    And now an update...............

    I stopped the chewing gum immediately on Monday morning.
    I rechecked Tuesday - still not in ketosis.
    Saw my CDC in the evening who said it was the chewing gum for sure.
    Checked this morning and I am now in Ketosis. Yay me!

    So, just thought I'd let everyone know, especially the new people.

    I think maybe the odd bit of gum is ok but the carbs mount up.

    Beware folks! And thanks for the replies.

    Hi Heffa

    If I am right the "splash" chewing gums are the ones that are fruit flavoured with a sort of liquid in the middle and I think if you check the ingrediants they have citric acid in them which are a no go for SS.

    I have just started SSing for the second time and during the first one I occasionally chewed plain old mint gum to help get rid of the terrible taste in my mouth (goldspot is a bit intense for me!!). I would not chew it for long though as it just made me hungry - but I never got kicked off ketosis - not that I was anywhere near a pack a day though

    Good luck
    Barbara

    I think it may be the type of gum you are chewing. I use Airwaves sugar free and it definitely hasn't affected my ketosis or weight loss. Having said that I wouldn't have as much as a pack a day but I would have some every day.

    I use the listerine strips if I have manky breath the green ones that dissolve on your tongue, you are allowed these and I find they are nicer than goldspot!

    If you have one piece of airwave sugar free chewing gum will that knock you out of ketosis and will it effect my weight loss for the first week. I am currently on day 4
